XRT is the only Tuning company beside Cobb Tuning to demonstrate it tuning capabilities and the release of tuning information to the World before any other tuning companies. In fact, tuning companies requires Cobb Tuning to support these models. XRT don’t! Thats being innovative and creative!
Please also note XRT is a Cobb Protuner and we support tuning of the Subaru Ascent using the Cobb Accessport.
In respect to our research and development (as shown at the very below) on the Subaru Ascent & the FA24DIT operating in this vehicle, we are offering Stage 0 and 1 tuning support to owners with the following requirements:
- Tuning that does not require a device to be installed in the car
- Improve driveability with clear objectivity in engine response
- Improve Fuel Mileage
- Reduce throttle lag
- Better sounding throaty engine
- A little more pep (Stage 1)
- Improve CVT Operations
The tuning is really considered for those not liking the small little issues as highlighted in our XRT Subaru Ascent Whatsapp group – https://chat.whatsapp.com/E1dPtXGgn3oEJAEm6P3aeU

OK we are close this one was good!
Town driving–Throttle response is still nice and strong-nothing changed there and that is good. A little jumpy in S# at ~25% throttle around 3K in 2nd and 3rd BUT** it’s very responsive to input and i don’t have the most steady foot on bumpy roads:-) doesn’t do it in S mode so yeah…my foot lol!
3rd gear pull– Only 1 single instance (single cell) of ping (-1.5) right before peak boost. a few -1.5 cells as I lifted off throttle at 6000rpm. Feels Strong.
How it feels on the 3rd gear pull–pulls harder as the boost spools up–perfect!. It feels like it hits a shot of Nitrous about 4600RPM as it transitions from 8.5degrees to 10.5degrees of timing. It’s subtle, not a surge, but I thought I’d point that out.
Roll on acceleration about 3000rpm—amazing in all gears. I don’t really feel that transition in this circumstance.
2nd gear is just nuts. I never really tried it before at WOT. SO yeah, nice one!
Shifting–under load, nice and sharp and quick. I don’t know if it’s possible to tune this—-> but it would be nice for the trans to respond faster to paddle inputs, especially at light load around town. No big deal though;-)
Alright, well where do I start? As we are getting close to the end of the tuning process I’m thoroughly impressed. Ed’s knowledge and feedback to my queries has been fantastic. He’s quick to respond and I challenge any tuner to provide such good customer support! Feedback is nearly immediate and revisions come daily (sometimes more often!).
I urge any Cobb tuned customer to consider XRT. If you have an 5EAT or if you are Cobb tuned on Canadian petrol, you need to contact XRT tomorrow!!
My Cobb stage 2 provided predictable, modest power improvements as advertised from Cobb. However, as predicted, the pinging (feedback knock, fine knock learning) was endemic, over all grades of petrol. Only after a couple revisions he had the power far above Cobb’s tune, and a transmission that provides strong, fast shifts. We are onto Rev 5, and the power keeps building and I’m getting zero pinging under all conditions, on standard Canadian 91 petrol! And the shifting and throttle response are unreal. Night and day over an Off The Shelf tune…. BRAVO Edward!!!!
By the way The AVO turbo kit and the raptor supercharger kits are not available for the 2015+, due to no tuning or fuel pump solutions
Thanks to XRT Ed, I have been given the confidence to move forward with the project. I live by multiple Subaru tuners, and was turned down by all of them. Ed said he was up to the challenge, and I like working with people that have a can do attitude
Now the car is running great. I have made some decent pulls to collect data for ED. He is doing an outstanding job!!! This is the first time anyone has tuned a 15+ NA for turbo and there are a lot of hurdles to overcome. ED is knocking it out of the park. Every time he sends me a ROM it gets better and better. His CVT tune is awesome, makes it feel like a sports car not a grocery getter.

The car is now feeling much better than I imagine, it moves and feels GREAT threw out the entire power-band, no more waiting till after 5000rpms to feel being pushed back in the seat. XRT is the best in customer service, turn around time and great advisor and tuner. Turn the car from slouchy to speedy
