Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

Mike, ESL is quickly going the way of the Rob Tune. Now that their product is in the marketplace, they've basically abandoned it. No updates, no expansion of offerings and fairly apathetic customer service. The WRXLink IS the future of EMS for these powerplants.

Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

Josh, shoot me your email and I'll send you the info Rick provided me when I enquired about purchasing the older G4+. I asked a few questions about the differences and it sounds like this is THE way to go, moving forward with these old rigs.

Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

The new Link ECUs ARE plug 'n' play, so just install the board in your stock ECU case and go to town.

GeneralDisorder on the USMB is the fellow I'll be purchasing mine from, and will have it tuned at his shop. He owns Superior Subie & Import down in Milwaukee, OR.

Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

Just spoke with my buddy who is a distributor/installer for the Link ECUs. They are moving from the Link G4+ to the G4-X, which has a much faster processor, more memory for data logging and can utilize CAN for wideband, etc. I'll be going this route probably before the end of the year, once they rol...

Are the EJ25D heads (and thus valve cover gaskets) the same on the EJ20G? Is the EJ20K the odd one out here?

Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

If I could do it again, I would get the plug and play "Link WRXLINK Ver 1/2." Its double the price at a minimum, but many/most tuners are at least somewhat familiar with it, and you can use additional input/outputs beyond those in the stock Subaru harnesses. I hear the tuning software is significan...

Re: RIP EJ20G

I’m guessing maybe a spun bearing, but I don’t really know what caused the engine to seized while running so abruptly. Sounds like you spun a bearing, causing the rotating assembly to seize. If you had been on the highway the oil pressure likely would have been high enough that you wouldn't have no...

Why not just clean the IAC? There are several tutorials out there both for the legacy and the later imprezas. It's pretty darn easy.

The CARFAX report states that this car sustained "severe damage" in an accident in 2015. How was everything repaired? Do you have pictures of the undercarriage?
