  1. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    MB: Excellent, looks like the color, at least, is consistent among our relatively small sampling no matter which model or year. I'll tweak the schematics per your other suggestions and put up a new copy in the next couple days, looks like I can leave the color alone, though I'll probably still...
  2. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    MB: As for the color change, indeed that was on purpose. I thought you had made a mistake when you made your schematic. Bad assumption on my part! The wire in my car is white with a green stripe! I'm curious about SeaComms' car now - is his white with a green stripe or green with a white...
  3. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    Summary OK, I'm uploading all of the diagrams for going 4WD on-demand. One set is based on SeaComms' method (essentially, he uses a relay with a remote switch - which is the version I used,) the other is based on MountainBiker's (he uses only a DPDT switch, no relay). MY DRAWINGS ARE COMPLETE...
  4. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    Success!!!! It worked! It worked! Wooo Hooo!! :-) I just got back from the test drive in my XT, and sending 12v to the solenoid side of the white/green wire absolutely did the trick! I also put 2, 20 watt, 8 ohm resistors in parallel and connected those to the other (Trans Computer) side...

    Hey, no problem! Thanks for having a look. I'll go ahead and give the mod a shot either tonight or over the weekend. Wish me luck! I'll post back the results, once this is straightened out and tested, I think a summary post here and maybe at scoobymods.com is in order? Thanks, Jack

    Alright, looks like no one is willing to go out on a limb and say whether or not my idea will work, SOOOOO, I'll have to show the schematics to a couple of friends of mine (if I can ever pin them down long enough!) and see what they say. If it looks good in theory, I'll give it a shot and see...
  7. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    OK, now we're definitely getting somewhere. I found the same section of the manual for my turbo Forester and it has uncovered some interesting facts. First of all, I do indeed have the correct pin. The "Transfer duty solenoid" (also referred to as the "AWD Duty Solenoid" in other sections of...
  8. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    XT Different? Well, I can see why the mod didn't work on my car now, but I'm afraid it doesn't get me any closer to a solution. I tested my white w/green stripe wire, pin 4 on plug B56. Ignition on in all tests. Here are the results: Park, Throttle Closed: 0.00 volts (So far, so good)...
  9. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    FWD instead of 4WD? I've never been so baffled by a mod in my life, and I've done a lot of 'em to my 1992 Eclipse. First off, thanks to SeaComms for opening this discussion back up again and getting enough information for me to continue...at least I *think* thank you. Had it not been for you...
  10. 4WD On Demand From 4EAT

    Transmission and Driveline
    MountainBiker (I think) posted in the old subaruforester.com forums about a method by which you could flip a switch to essentially lock the center diff when needed. At the time I didn't have the service manuals and couldn't figure out how to do the mod. Now I have the manuals, and can't find...
  11. 06s really different?

    General Forum
    I actually saw an SVX the other day that had been converted into a Baja-like pickup! :-) I snapped some photos with my cell phone camera, will have to move them to my computer and post them. Jack Z
  12. What am I hearing from my intake?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    The noise is likely a leaky bypass valve. It's not the air being sucked in, because the hiss only happens (on mine anyway) at part, but heavy, throttle. If I "floor it" the hiss goes away, even though there's even MORE air getting sucked into the engine. The bypass valve is designed to open...
