    Hi Rossco,

    I was just wondering if you could help me out. i have a gc8 99. with power fc. The car is having issues with starting. I cranks and struggles to start. after a few goes with the gas pedal it start and doesnt hold, unless i keep the throttle on. I thought it be the fuel filter and spark plugs replaced and still doesnt fix.

    But the funny thing i put the stock ecu back in it starts. but injector 1 isnt running. also diagnostic mode doesnt work either.

    Can you help me out?

    Much appreciated,

    Hey Rossco, do you still sell NGK Spark plugs? I'm currently after a set of 4 of either:

    Whats your best price for these?

    Hi Rossco, Amtrapid says your the one to talk to about data cables, Torque and a 1998 MY99. I've done a lot of research and from what I can tell my car is pre-OBD2 compliant and only has the connector for it but can't communicate over it. It should however communicate over Subaru Select Monitor II. I've seen reports of various cars as old as a MY00 working with OBKey in SSMII mode, but they weren't Australian cars. Do you know if anyone has tried running the OBDkey in SSMII mode on an MY99 or know of a working solution?

Today I fitted up the GD Sti topmount I aquired from Brent.

All went swimmingly as I had modded my mounts to fit a GD Wrx cooler (my v6 sti one was covered with bent fins).

One small drama ....The Sti's factory strut brace no longer fits... Bugger!

Time to buy a whiteline one........

Process West Cold Air Intake
Prospeed Silicone induction tube
GD top mount cooler
05 Sti front seats ('cause I'm fat!):happy2:

Now running 1.5 -1.6 bar with AFR's of 11.4 @ 1.6 bar.

I stumbled across an excellent tool to aid in the adjustment of fuel mapping on the power Fc.

It's an Excel spread sheet that allows you to drop your current fuel map, target AFR map and logged AFR's into their respective cells where by it spits out a corrected fuel map to correspond to the target afr map you have specified....

Here are some screen shots of the Datalogit data, wide band logs & Fc edit maps.

After enjoying the cars new found power & responsiveness for a couple of months........I wanted more!

Having previously tuned my own cars (predominantly Mazda rotories, both N/a & turbos) using either Microtech or Wolf ecu's, I began to look into a PC based interface to allow me to see all of the hidden settings in the Power Fc and to log things like lambda, boost, injector duty & temps for track days....and tweak my tune as I add more to the car.
