Customer Feedback - Subaru Forester turbo diesel

Show Navigation Menu

Hi Brett,

I Wanted to give you guys some feedback on the Ecutek tune I had done on my MY13 diesel Forester. I've done about 5000kms with the tune and I'm really happy with the results.

Around town the car feels much the same and I’m getting comparable fuel economy, if not slightly better. On the highway I’m getting slightly better fuel economy at 5.6L/100km, but it has gone down as low as 4.8L/100km.

I haven’t noticed a change in regens, but I mostly do long county trips.

The noticeable difference between before and after the tune is the massive increase in torque. When I plant my foot at around 2500rpm power comes on much faster and harder all the way to around 4000 revs. This extra power makes overtaking and hill climbs a breeze. It’s also a lot quicker off the mark - 0-100 time is now about 8.2 secs – a 2 sec improvement on stock.

Overall the tune has improved responsiveness and the extra grunt certainly makes it a far more enjoyable drive.

Cheers

Glen
