    Inut Connector question

    Hi there everyone, im brand new to this site so please be nice!
    anyways i i bought this 02 wrx that appeared to be stock except a turbo timer (blitz dual II)
    i have been doing alot of research about all the modifications and where to start. I am currently looking for a cobb at a descent price as one of my first upgrades.

    I checked under my dash and found a inut connector connected but not the green conectors. i know this is for a programing bypass.

    i unplugged the inut connector and then my car wouldnt crank, i was wondering if this was because there is some sort of EM i hadn't seen, and it needed to be conected in order for the EM to run correctly.

    Any help would be appeciated greatly thank you!

    "Init" connector, short for intiailization connector. It's the blue or white connector shipped with AccessPorts, needed for flashing any 02-05 WRX whether opensource or by AP. If that was connected and the car didn't start after disconnecting it, you may definitely want to have a look around to see if there isn't a piggyback system in there somewhere.

    Also, definitely remove that turbo timer. It's useless junk.

    thank you!
    I honestly like the turbo timer, and it doesn't seem to hurt anything. plus I didn't pay for it. I looked for all these piggyback and things.i have not found it. is it possible to open sourse tune the stock pcm?

    Except it is useless and wastes fuel.

    I am confused by your question. Most people do opensource tune the stock ECU, but you will require the initialization connector to do so (on pre 2008 non-CANbus ECUs)

    You can pull the map and compare it to stock.

    Tactrix OP2.0 would be the preferred choice.
