Website is busted

Written by

For 5+ years I have hosted (poorly) my website from a QNAP NAS box that sits atop a freezer in my garage.  Due to increasing ransomware attacks specifically targeting QNAP devices, I decided I need to pull the device from internet connection and move my webiste to a better host.  The migration was complete, but not completely successful as many of you have noticed.   Right now it is not possible to request an account or to purchase products.   Fret not, this isn't an indicator that I am done providing tunes.  This is something that I am slowly working on in the background and will have resolved hopefully in the next few weeks.  Until then, I will not be taking new orders, so please hang tight.

Tunes available again

Written by

Well I missed March and April, but am back up for May.  The storefront and new user registration is back open.  I do have enough parts on hand to build a few tune boards and 4to2 converters on hand.   I have completed my server backend changes.  If for some reason registration or orders are not working for you send me an email directly.  Hope everyone is staying healthy and getting time to work on their projects.

2020 update

Written by

Hello all,

Happy Holidays again for 2019.  I am taking a bit of a break from Robtune work for a couple of months.  I have turned off new user registration and the storefront for the time being with the hope of having it back up and running by end of February.   For those who have orders in currently, I expect to have them all finished around New Year's.    In the off time, I am planning on addressing some backend website issues and improving my tune board to make assembly easier which should translate into much faster turn around times.

Thanks again for all the kind words and support.

Happy Holidays 2018

I just wanted to say thank you to all of the Subaru community that have been and continue to be overwhelmingly supportive.  I may not be as active or visible on the various forums these days, but the kind emails and product support is much appreciated.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Site and Email difficulties

Written by

Just a quick note that I have been having site and email issues over the past couple of weeks.  I have resolved the issues and everything should be working as normal.  If you have tried and failed to get a hold of me, feel free to shoot me another message.  You can cc my gmail address as well just to be sure; rob.files@ 

My apologies for the hassle!

New Product! Injector Adapters

Written by

I have added injector adapters to my product list!  These can be used for adapting phase 2 side feed injectors (like the '04+ STi yellows) to a phase 1 injector rail (like the stock EJ20G or EJ22T rails).   These adapters or a fuel rail swap is required to run my 550 tune.  My kit includes all hardware required for installation.  IMPORTANT NOTE - The small O-rings are sized specifically to my adapters, you must use the ones included in the kit.  The other two larger O-rings are standard sized.

Back in stock

Written by

I am happy to report that I now have a new RobTune board available to replace the out of production Eprom chips that I have been using for the past 7 years.   As I type this, I have enough parts on hand to build a couple of boards immediately.  I am having more PCBs fabbed up and should have those ready to go in about 2 weeks.    Shoot me an email or leave a comment if you have any questions.

Update on Availability

Written by

As you might have noticed, I currently show no stock for tunes on the product page.  This is because I have run out of Eprom chips and have no stock ECUs on hand.  The former is a bigger problem than the latter.   The chips that I use are non standard pieces and were made specifically for the subaru ECUs.  They are long since out of production and I have up until now been using old stock.  It seems that all old stock has essentially run out.    What this means is that tune availability will be on hold until I get an alternate solution in place.

New Website

Written by

I am happy to say that I have finally put some real effort into rebuilding my webpage.  I had to learn a few new tricks along the way, but in the end I am happy with all the new functionality.  In addition to the improved aesthetics, I have added blog components, a real e-commerce solution, an improved FAQ page, a user registration and last but not least a site that has some comprehension of working on smaller screens.
