  1. I got for 2007 Legacy .. interesting that it says the Passenger airbag might need replacing if not already done in japan (mine was imported 2008 so doubt it). Doesn't mention drivers airbag though?? I have to wait for a second letter to confirm that it does need doing
  2. You need to use BTSSM like tool or what ever the tuner uses. With SI Drive yes you can .. I have different requested boost levels for the different modes. If they do start seeing knock when it gets up above 5k .. I dunno i'd tune it to low safe then leave it alone. They will of course stop if starts knocking where it shouldn't but just be extra wary based on other peoples experiences. Manual's seem to tune different to the autos. Not sure if maybe a rolling road instead of hub dyno wouldn't be better too Oh and 3-port boost solenoid gives the tuner better control.. maybe consider adding that before starting
  3. Autos seem to be problematic either for some tuners or in general.. I fully recommend checking the Learned Values in the ECU, if you are seeing lots of negative numbers that's not good, I think this would give an indication of overall health. If you find even in sport # it doesn't have punch then it might already be down on power/health. My engine popped on the dyno, new EJ207 short block + recond heads and '000s later its back to just above stock power levels
  4. mines working with a $6 VAG cable to an Android tablet. You don't need the $100+ cable just to use the BTSSM dashboard
  5. I went with an Android heat unit to replace the factory stereo .. mine is huge but you can get smaller single DIN models. Takes away the hassle of mounting solutions + power management. Auto shuts down with car and stays in sleep time for 30mins then full power down(configurable). still haven't take the plastic film off the front yet but the VAG cable,etc is nicely routed now
  6. On my AV cable it has a trigger wire .. carries the 12volt signal from the reverse lights where the camera is to the stereo
  7. Gauges are good I guess.. but if you are too busy hard out driving it you won't even get to look at them .. digital with peak hold,etc would be ok. I've got Android car stereo with the 10.2" screen($450) and BTSSM running, so I get gauges and logging/alerts, just using the VAG cable too ($8)
  8. I park brake on, put in neutral, Start/stop then shift to park. Just saying as it sounds like you leave it in drive, id prefer to cut the engine load before turning off. Side note I have a 2007 Legacy BP - have you tried the morse code drivers door handle trick to get in without keys/fob - doesn't seem to work for me
  9. Update I'm on drugs. Seems to all be working, now no changes made... Someone nuke this thread
  10. ’t mind it myself. With the stereo I could only use the speaker ISO plug. As the Android head unit, for the power iso plug also had the swc controls built in while the stereo adapter doesn't, couldn't easily add pins. Used the radio provided iso plug that had bare ends to make the power and swc connections. The radio dims just fine when lights are turned off and goes bright when back on. The i85 plug has a green dimmer wire, I presumed based on the US site information above that the dimmer wire goes into stereo and comes back out on the i85 to body unit and then to the ac/clock. I'm never going back to factory so it didn't bother me about chopping the i85 plug. If the i85 doesnt affect clock or hvac, I can't see why they always stay dim. Especially if you guys are just using stock iso adapters and not touching the i85 except for swc
  11. BumpBump for me.. Any of your double din guys hooked up the dimmer or illumination wire to make the clock /hvac not be dim? @Andy_Mac@Kiwi_Fozze@McDoof@sobanoodle@subnoob123@AD1CT
  12. No sorry went in the bin
  13. Seicane S181016 Fitment worked out really well. You can tilt the screen up, down left and right. AND slide the whole screen up or down so I could make it lower cover the AC controls or higher cover the clock more. I still have the factory plastic on the screen as I need to remove again when the reversing camera comes. I plan on using a Galaxy tab screen protector cut to size or maybe the larger iPad pro. Think this will help with the glare too. BTSSM is using a $6 Aliexpress VAG cable with USB straight into headunit not needing separate OTG adapter. I presume its okay to leave the VAG cable always connected? Screen tilted flat - this is a really side on angle.. in normal sitting you can't see the mount at all And tilted down
  14. Put the JDM 2DIN dash kit in with aftermarket stereo and the clock/AC is dim like in night mode/headlights on Can anyone confirm how to fix it? I have already cut the i85 plug off (using 2 of the 3 wire for Steering Wheel Controls) leaving the Green wire #8 which is for dimmer. What can i connect the Green #8 wire to without having to mess with the i88 connector? From legacy GT site where they have to add wires from stock wiring harness to handle the JDM (our) AC units : Add a wire to pins, 2,4 and 8 on the i88 connector(hvac) Doesn't matter what color, just "jam" them in and zip tie the wires so they won't pull out. I also wrapped the wires around the harness(see pic) so they would have a little more play. the other ends of the those 3 wires will be spiced in(either side of the radio plug see pic for placement) if you do not want to splice into your factory wiring(as I didn't) you can put the illumination ground or negative or whatever you want to call it(-) onto regular ground, however you will only have 2 settings dim and bright(ok for me) The non- ghetto way just requires you to add actual pins to the harness but seeing as I don't have those, its ghetto but it works.
  15. @BMCracer @sobanoodle My mistake has caused confusion Not Stock Location and Not Stock Camera I want this one https://www.aliexpress.com/item/wireless-wire-for-sony-ccd-HD-Car-Rear-View-Reverse-backup-Camera-for-SUBARU-FORESTER-IMPREZA/32215223171.html?spm=a2g0s.13010208.99999999.265.MxJK5l that replaces the left/right Numberplate light I'm going to go ahead and order it, I just don't want to pull apart the whole boot lid and find I can't actually access the number late lights from behind So not stock on the far left but one of the two number plate lights
