We are happy to announce we now are offering live remote in options for PassThru CAN. This will allow us to install the software on your computer, perform a teach-in, or even flash S-sport (Ralliart only). This also would also apply to firmware updates on the older older RA/MR TCU models that do not support the teach-in function.
Teach-in Information (Ralliart/MR): A lot of guys think a teach-in is required only when the SST has been modified. This is true, but is only part of the story. A teach-in is a very important function as it allows the SST to "relearn" itself also. We have found this very beneficial on cars that are having minor SST hiccups (minor slip, sloppy 1-2 shift, etc) or that are higher mileage. It never hurts to get it done. Now a teach-in is not a guaranteed fix, but it can make a big difference in how the SST performs.
S-sport (Ralliart) Information: For the Ralliart, Mitsubishi did not provide it with S-sport from the factory. This is an important upgrade, even to a stock car. It is even something we require for our ECU tunes due to the added torque. S-sport adds 20% more clutch pressure over Sport mode. (Despite the rumors that Sport mode can not be tuned to have as much clutch pressure as S-sport). We often hear about the different 5th/6th gear ratios causing slip with a Ralliart and S-sport. This is NOT true. If you see rev hunt (which is unlikely with our tunes) it is only a discrepancy between the ECU and TCU for RPM. The clutches are not slipping and it does not hurt the SST. It generally happens around 1700-2100 RPM and can usually be driven around (meaning upshift or downshift). *Note: S-sport on a Ralliart under warranty will void the warranty (stock Ralliart firmware can be flashed back to the TCU).*
Firmware Update: The older TCU came with a firmware version that did not support the teach-in. By updating the firmware, we are able to have the ability to do a teach-in on older TCUs. Years that are included are 2008-2009 RA/MR. (Doing S-sport on the Ralliart automatically updates the firmware, but the firmware update can be done without S-sport).
- PassThru CAN Only: Includes the install of PassThru CAN (with proper registry edits) and the necessary files to peform the teach-in, firmware update, and S-sport firmware. (No how-to help will be given for performing the functions). -This is for the guys who have done the research how to do everything, but do not feel comfortable installing the software.
- PassThru CAN+Teach-in: Includes the install of the PassThru CAN software (as above), the necessary files, and performing of the teach-in procedure for the SST. -A way to monitor trans temp (Evoscan for example) is recommended.
- PassThru CAN+Firmware Flash: Includes the install of the PassThru CAN software, the necessary files, and the flashing of the firmware to the TCU. -This is for Ralliarts wanting S-sport or Ralliarts/MRs wanting/needing the firmware update.
- PassThru CAN+Firmware Flash+Teach-in: A combination of everything above. This includes the install the PassThru CAN software, the necessary files, the flashing of the firmware, and performing the teach-in procedure. -This is recommended by us, and is required for RAs/MRs that want a teach-in but have the old TCU firmware.
*Note: If you have PassThru CAN installed already but want a teach-in and/or firmware flash, please contact us.*
Easy and straight forward process using TeamViewer. Nate knew what he was doing and completed the process pretty quickly. Recommended if you don’t want to mess with doing it yourself.
The process went very smoothly. Definitely helped the shift feel and clutch engagement.
A customer project has been postponed and not sure when he will order yet. But I'm sure Nate did excellent installation work, gave us very reliable advice upon my questions.

Awesome company to work with. Very knowledgeable and the whole process went smoothly with no issues.
