Re: Dash lights

I don't know the bulb numbers, but here are some pictures of the gauge cluster torn apart which might help identify the bulbs. http://main.experiencetherave.com/subaru/images/combmeter I actually found that post & used it to get my lights fixed. Thanks. Can you link it to me? Two of my lights h...

Re: Robstune options?

Ah okay, that's good! But the car won't run lean then? Or maybe it's restricted by the ECU yes? But as far as cooling goes, I'd rather have a TMIC as it appears more stock looking.. If I don't upgrade the stock water intercooler, will and STI intercooler be a good upgrade? Regarding the larger turb...

Check out this post for the AWIC radiator upgrade. http://bbs.legacycentral.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=35394 Injectors would need to match the ECU & tune. The turbo can be added prior to upgrading the ECU, you just wouldn't be able to run more boost. past what the stock ECU/injectors can handl...

Re: Robstune options?

To clarify, you already have the vf34 installed, right? Either way, if you put a wrx or sti ej20g ecu in, you won't change the injectors. If you're adding a fmic, you don't deal with the awic pump wiring at all. Personally I would install a bigger aftermarket awic panel. It would then have all the ...

Re: Robstune options?

Remember that a robtune (or other tuning chip or ecu) will expose any weaknesses in the system. It magnifies any marginal performing electronics, vacuum leaks, exhaust or intake leaks you may have. So after the robtune, your car will probably run way worse till you get everything working properly. ...

Re: Robstune options?

Mpgingerson, the ej20g based legacys had either a vf8, vf10 or vf12. The VF12 was the biggest, followed by vf8. The vf10 was fitted to automatics. The vf8 and 12's made around 220chp from the factory, and the vf10 made 200chp. These are all relatively slow spooling and old technology. They can all ...

Re: Stock EJ20G low boost?

You don't need to up the boost on the MBC, you just need to see if it will maintain the correct boost pressure as stock. If it does then you know there may be an issue with the boost control electronics or something is up with the input sensors/data that tells the ECU what to set the boost at. Okay...

If you get rid of the resonator in the fenderwell you can get some of the same noises that you can hear with the pod filter, but they may not be as loud.

Re: Stock EJ20G low boost?

Hmmm I'm not sure what to tell you without some more diagnostic information. Do you have a wideband O2 sensor to check AFR's? Forgive me if you've posted this elsewhere, but do you have a boost gauge and if so what boost pressures are you seeing when things are running normally and what are you see...

Re: Robstune options?

I think the first question you should ask yourself is what tests are done on the car and how would the inspectors know you have different injectors or ECU? If they are just looking for physical differences like a pod filter and exhaust then those are easily unbolted and bolted back on. You can run ...

But how will the car respond when I go from full Robs tune with all the supporting mods to stock engine again with just the injectors, maybe the turbo aswell...

Re: Robstune options?

Hi, Rob has a tune for either ej20g gray injectors, or the new age impreza STI yellow tops. Either one will get you to around STI power. The tune for the yellow tops allows for a couple extra psi on a td05 or similar (such as the vf34). But your old style ej20g heads might not flow enough to take a...

Hello. I'm driving a Subaru Legacy Turbo 1993, EJ20G engine. The final plans for mods on my car are: 3" turbo back exhaust (catless), Walbro 255 fuel pump, Apexi intake w/ coffee cup included, FMIC with some sort of blow off valve, vf34 turbo and 550cc injectors, but living in strict Norway, I ...

Re: Walbro 255 on Subaru Legacy

Just changed it.. Very easy job, except manoeuvring the pump assembly in and out haha.. I bought the GSS341 and it bolted and plugged straight up?

But one question, the old pump was a Airtex E8229.. Isn't that very low in L/H? Can't find much info on it online.

Try a brand new factory coolant temperature sensor. It is the one with a plug on it, not the one with a single blade, both are located under the intake manifold, on the coolant crossover pipe. It seems almost like magic how many problems a new one solves. It may not be your only issue, but the ecu ...
