I do, and have had since I turbo'd, a Walbro 255 installed. It was one of the first things I did, mainly because it was incredibly easy...

Hmmm, that's strange....

Have you run a gauge on your fuel system to see what the pressure is?

Well, I'm running an N/A ECU, injectors and MAF, so I'm not surprised it's running lean at 11 lbs of boost. Are you talking about a Legacy SS?

Yes I'm talking about the turbo Legacy.

Yeah if you're running the non-turbo ECU then yeah it would be running lean. You could bandaid it with a rising rate fuel pressure regulator, but really you need larger injector and tuning.

Haha yup, exactly! That's why I have turbo injectors and rails, that I know will be plenty of fuel and I'll be wiring in a PP6 for tuning

Let me know how the pp6 goes. I'm at 6psi right now on mine and I'm getting antsy for more. I want to get a fuel pressure regulator and SR20 370CC injectors and crank it up a little. I'm unsure about timing though.

Hell, if it makes it easier, add me as a friend on facebook. My name is "Riley DiGennaro" and it would probably be easier to message on there.

Thanks for the pics, I had the same thing happen when my sunroof leaked and there was standing water. Replaced the relay and plug and I'm back in business.
