RICA iSoftloader

Improve performance with the touch of a button!
It’s really that easy – with the RICA iSoftloader System.



How It Works:

The RICA iSoftloader System allows you to switch between standard ECU software and RICA performance software with the touch of a button. You can also revert back to the standard software program in minutes, whenever you wish. RICA performance software is easily downloaded over the Internet.

RICA iSoftloader Benefits:

  • Tune the car yourself via the OBD2 diagnostics port
  • Can hold up to four (4) tunes
  • The same iSoftloader unit can tune multiple vehicles you own
  • Ability to quickly revert back to the standard program anytime
  • Custom tuning for any other modifications you have
  • Does not require a laptop to tune your car
  • Provides basic diagnostics functions allowing you to read and clear DTCs
  • 2 years free support included by RICA Engineering.

Custom Tuning Options:

The RICA iSoftloader System is the only hand-held tuning system thats allows you to tune with custom written software for your car! We can tailor your software tune to take advantage of other performance hardware upgrades to achieve maximum performance for your car (such as a performance downpipe or exhaust, front mount intercooler, larger turbocharger, race fuel tune, etc.). Other software tune features include removal of speed/rev limiters, and high octane/race fuel specific tunes. We also offer the following "Staged" software tunes:

  • Stage 1: For use with a performance cat-back exhaust and air filter element upgrade
  • Stage 2: Stage 1 plus a 3" performance downpipe with race-cat
  • Stage 3: Stage 2 plus front-mount intercooler upgrade, turbocharger upgrade, ignition component upgrades and water/methanol injection (specific upgrades vary by model)

What’s Included:

You receive the iSoftloader unit, a hand-held device that plugs directly into your OBD2 diagnostics port, a USB cable, and the iSoftloader Sync software, a Windows®-based application that communicates the iSoftloader unit with RICA's software servers.
