Is your last name McKinney by chance? Did you buy your AP used from someone named McKinney? If so, it could be a ProTuned map for a car if it was bought used.

my last name is not mckinney.....i did buy it used, but not from someone with the last name mkinney. there was a print out, i guess from this person that says to use the mckinney main with the mckinney base map, if not it will seem sluggish....? I am at a loss. I am too new at the AP to understand ...."stupid" possibly..... :lol:

Here is a question.....what program should I use with the mods I have? Or should I save my money and get someone to pro-tune me?

DO NOT USE any McKinney maps on your AP. These maps are apparent ProTuned maps for a particular car out there. These maps can possibly damage your car. It is very possible your AP has changed hands more than once.

Unless the original maps have been erased from the AP you should have a Realtime map titled "Stage 2". You can use that map since it is an off the shelf map that is normally very rich and safe to use on all STi's.

Your best gains will come from an all new tune, specific to your vehicle.
