So I have been searching a while and it seems the only way to get more power from my 1998 s/tb is to use and electronic boost controller. Does anyone know if there is some kind of ECU management that works? Rob tune wont work and neither will Cobb. I would much rather use engine management than the EBC.
Thanks in advance.

Bump for you. Not really sure how the engine management is done on pre-2002 subaru's. Can anyone confirm if Opensource will work on these ECU's, or does the OP have to resort to Piggyback style management for tuning?

Enduring Solutions Limited is one option

otherwise as you say an electronic boost controller HDI SBC-D-SE boost controller seems a relatively easy install without the need to wire directly to the ECU.

I have a swapped 98 USDM 2.5 to a 98 S/TB and Im using a greddy emanage with a stock ECU to compensate for any changes I've done.

If you use a ebc like the hdi does it stop fuel cut from coming in? i was using a mbc and right when i got to 15 psi fuel cut would hit any thoughts? sorry to thread jack just thought it kinda applied here

My father has one of those. He uses a MBC @ 12 PSI, and has run that way for more then 2 years. Works great.

I believe ECUtec can be used for tuning, but that probably cost more then the whole car with that licence.

Bringing back from the dead a bit. I've contacted a couple tuners in my area and so far nothing. Got a suggestion from one to check out EvoScan.com. However, since there are no base ROM's on there would have to create one first.
