This will be my working thread as i find out more about the UTEC. The UTEC has a large following in the WRX community and therefore one should think they have made custom tools and software to play with this EMU. Well I have found a bunch of tools.. So I will be posting them and reviewing them as well as other info I come across. The information contained in this thread will be moved to the Wiki after a while..

First up is a 3D graph viewer of the UTEC maps. I havent really figured out what all this does, but its cool and can impress your buddies with your cool pictures of what your engine is doing :)

Spreadsheet:
[attachmentid=12200]

Fuel Map:
[attachmentid=12201]

Timing Map:
[attachmentid=12202]

Boost Map (everything is zero since my car is NA currentlly):
[attachmentid=12203]

Second Post.

The UTEC comes with a USB port, but nowhere is there documentation explaining what this is used for or how to use it. Well me being curious, I plugged it in and of course windows recognizes this and wants some drivers..

Here is the driver and other UTEC software (still nowhere does it say what the drivers do):

http://www.turboxs.com/downloads/350zutec/350Zutec_v2_3.zip

Ok, poke around for a bit after i uploaded the drivers to my PC. What i found that most people would miss, is my computer now has an extra COM port. So my conclusion, the USB driver turns the USB port into a simulated serial port. This is good news because my laptop does not have a serial port.

I can connect through Hyperterminal using the USB cable as a simulated COM port.

USB Cable:
[attachmentid=12211]

Serial Cable:
[attachmentid=12212]

Dangling Cabling:
[attachmentid=12214]

Third Post:

UTEC Map Editor:
This software lets you load up maps and edit them without corrupting the file integrity. (The UTEC checks the file when you try to reload it to ensure it is ok). This also shows you what you have edited (turns the cells green)

Download:
[attachmentid=12204]

[attachmentid=12205]
[attachmentid=12206]
[attachmentid=12207]
[attachmentid=12208]
[attachmentid=12209]

Great info so far! I'm glad you enjoy being a test subject. Good to know these things you're encountering.

through the hyperterminal, copy the maps to your computer, then download the spreadsheet (from my first post in this thread) Open the maps using the button in the spreadsheet. Then click the tabs at the bottom to see the different graphs.

How did you generate the 3D maps? Was that through hyperterminal while connected to UTEC?
The data is exported to EXCEL and then charted using standard EXCEL tools.
