    New here, but not new to subaru's

    Well I will start off I have been on many other car forums, just never got on this one don't know why. My name is Dan, and I'm from ohio around the cincinnati area. I drive a 02 wrx in psm its not fast but I love the car. I am the only one out of my friends that has a subaru, they all drive evo's, dsm's, 240's, and other random stuff.

    I bought the car a few years ago and just making it a work in progress. I will post pictures later as I'm on my phone and its a pain to post pictures.

    Mods:
    Hks down pipe
    Megan cat back
    Invidea up pipe
    Tien springs
    Rear sway bar and metal end links
    Hallman boost controller
    Sti trans mount
    Cobb short throw and bushings
    Hks turbo timer
    Megan gauges(3 in the clock spot)
    And just some weight saving


    The best time for the car so far was 14.08@96 1.8 60ft, and as I went up to run again well knowing it had a 13 in it the clutch wouldn't grab so that ended my day at the track. I'm waiting on a close friend/tuner to do a open ecu flash on the car before I go back to the track with a new clutch. I know I forgot stuff on my car, and probably miss spelled a lot of stuff but its 2:50am so oh well.

    I will try and get some pictures up this weekend, but there old because my car has an rs wingless trunk on it now and really haven't taken any pictures.


    You know when I got the car I was all about tuning it before I did anything to it I even sold a vf39 setup I had because I had no way to tune it. The guy I sold it to just slapped it on his 03 at 17psi and its runs strong all day long, but as for my car the setup I have is as far as I will push it with out a tune, and that is 15-16psi and maybe I'm just lucky because the car has 116k on it and runs like its brand new and I have kept up with all of the mant my self as I love working on cars.

    Welcome Dan. Great name. Nice looking car. You're definately going to want to look into some kind of EM soon. Running w/o it will cause damage to the motor over time. You don't know what your A/F ratios are. As far as the VF39 set up you sold, that guy will destroy his motor w/o EM. There's a lot of great info on this site. Also check out the Unabombers Manifesto from NASIOC if you haven't already. Enjoy!

    Dan

    I'm not sure where you're getting your info from, but you are incorrect. The stock map is tuned for your stock set up. When you introduce new parts onto the car, the map needs to be tuned to accomodate those changes.

    He can use the old 1.0 Tactrix Cable if he has that one. He doesn't have to wait for the new 2.0 to arrive.

    Yeah, it's definately wrong. Any changes made to our cars most likely require some kind of tuning to make sure they run safely.

    When he ordered his cable he thought he ordered the universal cable, but he tunes evo's and he has the mistubishi cable.

    And I guess I will have to wait till I get to my friends house to make the picture smaller to fit in the advatar, and to post some pictures in the bugeye mafia so I will take some new ones this weekend

    The Mitsubishi cable will work with your car. I use the same one. The only difference between the 2 is that that the Mitsu cable has an extra harness attached to it. Other than that, it's the exact same cable. Good luck.

    We have tried a couple times to use that cable, but it won't connect to my car and the people on nasioc say that its the cable

    Weird. I've used it on my car, & my buddys car to flash maps. Hope you get it all worked out soon.
