Re: Installing rob tune chip into 20g ecu

Yes I just wanted to show an example of what the socket looked like . So some 20 g Ecu’s already have the socket and some don’t ? Mine is a 7D .

Is that the correct socket in the bottom right corner . Or do I have to solder in a different IC socket ? Also th...

tell the difference between vf8 and vf10 without the number?

I inherited a vf8 or 10 but the number is worn off so I don't know what it is . I compared it to my td04 and everything is slightly bigger . Also it has 9 exhaust blades vs my td04s 11 or 12 blades. Thanks for any help .

Re: Usdm 96 hla dohc heads on 2.2 t gasket and other questio

Well I got the gaskets that you used in the mail today my bearings and rings come on Friday . So we will see , I am skeptical about the longevity of the gaskets with the bigger combustion chamber . Thank you for all your help . It is cool to hear that you can feel a bit more power .

Re: Usdm 96 hla dohc heads on 2.2 t gasket and other questio

Has anyone else made these heads work ? I read on another thread on here to use the phase 2 2.5 head gaskets ? It would be great to get some more input before I bolt the heads on . Thanks

My car has turbo back exhaust td04 at 15 or so psi and a forester intercooler . Also a ton of suspension and brake mods . It just scares me the the 2.2 head gasket is slightly smaller bore than the combustion chamber on the heads . Do you know anyone else who has done this with the 96 heads ? Thank ...

I have searched quite a bit on here and haven't found exactly what I am looking for . Will I have head gasket issues with the big combustion chamber of the 96 hla head ? Can I use a thinner gasket to help compression? Some one built these heads and tapped them for turbo lines and I am building my mo...

Re: 440 Grey injector into stock fuel rail questions

Thank youfor the reply. I did a similar thing. I got them to stop leaking today but it is still misfiring and I am going to put the stock injectors back in until I can find a Rob tune. Also I have low compression 100 psi in cylinder 1 that I found today so that is the miss fire issue I am sure... Gu...

Does anyone have a picture of a Grey top 440 with the correct one rings to fit into a 92 ej22t rail. I read the thread about it and link to the pictures don't work. I put mine in and believe it has an internal fuel leak. It runs way way way to rich. It's blowing a tone of fuel vapor out the exhaust....

My transmission is making some noise and its getting to be pretty loud. What are good replacement options since that is such a rare transmission.

Re: Stock 22t issues

Could that residue keep it from reading correctly and keep it from boosting? I'll clean it with maf cleaner tomorrow and see if that helps.
