Australian Subaru Support

 

Cobb_2015WRX_JimDavis_04

COBB is introducing the first ever non-USDM Subaru support for Australian Marked (ADM) Subarus.  The Accessport, hard parts, and off the shelf maps are now available for the 2015+ WRX and 2015+ STI!  Australian support will also include all of the latest features outlined in our recent Flex Fuel Announcement.

Vehicle Support

2015 Subaru WRX STI Sedan MT ADM

Subaru Australian Accessport V3 (AP3-AU-SUB-004)

The Accessport is the world’s best selling, most flexible, and easiest to use ECU upgrade solution for your Subaru. Unlock power hidden within the vehicle by replacing conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations. It’s the last engine management solution you’ll ever need.  For more details about the Accessport, check out The COBB Way.

Hard Parts and Off The Shelf (OTS) Maps

We’re continuing to test and confirm ADM hard part fitment on both the 2015-2016 WRX 6MT and the 2015-2016 STI.  You can find which parts are already confirmed for each vehicle by visiting the 2015+ ADM WRX 6 MT product page or the 2015+ ADM STI product page.  We expect the parts list to grow as testing continues.

There are also Off The Shelf map offerings for the Australian Market Subarus.  Check out the Maps section of our website for more details.  While it isn’t currently as extensive as the USDM line-up, we expect the map options to grow as research and development continues.  If there is not currently an OTS map that fits your application, we have a large Protuner network that is able to create a custom tune for  any level of modification.

    Great question! We are slowly adding support for international Subarus. If we see demand for the Forester XT it’s definitely something we can look into!

Hey guys!
I was wondering if your looking at realeasing a WRX CVT version for Aus?

If you are you would be knocking out two and a half models types in the one go the 15+ wrx cvt and also the new 17+ Levorg cvt (what I have) the levorg is essentially a wrx with a bigger trunk and with subaru’s eyesight but everything on the drive train is exactly the same as the wrx cvt. And would setup alot of ground work for the 2013 forester XT cvt that is slightly detuned from factory compared to the wrx.
Demand would be huge in australia for a cvt version of your accessport there’s a huge amount of cvt based wrx’s as the wrx has enjoyed record number sales over the past few years since arrival and currently with the release of the new Levorg cvt with the fa20dit engine same spec as the wrx is selling like hot cakes especially boosted by people like me who have gone from the 2013 forester xt to the faster levorg.
There’s definitely a market here.

    Hi Bryn!

    We are actually sending some engineers and calibrators over to Australia in the next month to gather more information about vehicles in Australia. If the Levorg does share the same ECU and ROM it’s likely we may be able to support it. Time will tell, though.

    Hey Chris, it wasn’t just you! We removed a couple of pages as it appeared we had mis-labeled the year models initially. I’ve updated the listing to only include the 2015 WRX and STI ADM pages. We believe vehicles supported would actually be marketed as 2014-2015 MY in Australia. If you have any questions about whether your vehicle is supported, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Hey Ben, our Subaru group is not currently working on adding CVT support for the Australian market however it is something we’ve been talking about. Hope to have some expanded Australian Subaru vehicle support moving into 2018.

Hi, does the SUBARU AUSTRALIAN ACCESSPORT V3 support New Zealand equivalents of WRX/STI?

    Marshall on September 22, 2017 says:

    Hey Ollie! It’s tough to say for sure whether or not our Australian Accessports will support vehicles in New Zealand. It is certainly possible it will work, however it’s also possible those cars are using a different ROM. Luckily we do have a 30-day money back guarantee if you’re willing to take the chance.

    Hey there! Our software team is currently working on adding support for the ADM 2018 WRX and STI. As long as everything goes to plan we should have something available around the end of February or early March. Do you have any other modifications done to your STI? What sort of map file would you be using?
