RevScan Connection issues

Post by martimus919 »

I am pulling my 94 back out to drive it more and forgot that I've been having issues with power like right before I stopped driving it more consistently I could barely drive it at sea level due to what felt like boost cut. Once I hit a certain elevation it stopped cutting which was great since I had to climb over 8000 feet to get back home. Fortunately, I live in the mountains and it's still drivable up here, just not remotely fun. I don't seem to be getting any codes and have bypassed the boost controller and am reading upwards of 10psi with a manual boost controller.

So I tried plugging into the ECU with RevScan so I can go monitor readings and see if there's something glaring that can help me get my power back but I am unable to connect. When I go to select the port my options are blank. From what I remember that is where I could select USB or serial port options. I'll select a car and OBD1 protocol but it keeps prompting me to select a vehicle.

Is there something very simple I am missing here?

Dumb question answered. Looked into the drivers and found no drivers installed for the USB cable. Installed a driver from internet and next thing you know, connection acquired. Science!!

I'm unfamiliar with tuning these cars. What hardware are you using to connect to the vehicle?
'93, '93 and '94 Legacy L, wagons, FWD and AWD, all are NA 2.2 w/ 4EAT.

Revscan is a defunct tuning software. I've tried to mirror what I can from their site. I have the page with the software if you want to play around with it.
