    Hi all, I need a bunch of work done to my 02 fozzie, and I haven’t gotten a quote yet, but I bet that it would cost more than it would to just swap my 2.5 N/A for the 2.0T that came in the jdm car. Is it possible (since it’s still from an sf fozzie, just jdm) to use an ecu from the jdm version...
  2. FB20 - 2.0L Non-Turbo (2011+ Euro-spec)
    Hi, I have recently replaced my 2.5l N/A forester with a 2.0l N/A. I really enjoy everything about it, but I am lacking just that slight bit of power I got out of my 2.5l. Now I have looked far and wide here and might have missed something, but I do not see people writing about performance...

    My 2017 FXT is relatively new to me I bought it with 62,000 miles on it. Right at about 68,000 a couple hundred miles after an oil change I'm driving down the highway and the engine just loses power and slowly in limp mode I'm able to get over to the overpass. After failing to start it multiple...

    It started with CEL Code p0021 P0011 I thought that my camshaft sensor is going bad or some wiring got wet. When I was driving car home it was raining hard, and the black plastic trim to protect from water on the front driver side wheel well is off. Upon inspection, I noticed lots of moisture...

    Yesterday we drove roughly 150 miles round trip to various stores a town across state. Nothing abnormal.

    Hi all! Yesterday I was finally able to read my ecu by selecting 2007+ from the list. Previously was hitting my head into sti05 and it always failed. Well anyways, I found out that in the ecu in diagnostics codes the CAT EFFICIENCY BELOW THRESHOLD was disabled, with numerous...

    I feel that this is an ominous start for me on these forums. Despite not owning a Subie since 2013, I have enough co-workers with them that have required my emotional, physical and technical support while pulling engines and trans to get my Subie fix while owning several German cars. I am also...
