  1. Will we continue to import from Japan though?
  2. Hey, I had this problem for YEARS. Tried all the tips and tricks I found on the web and nothing helped. Cleaned/replaced Maf sensor, cleaned intercooler and throttle body, changed turbo inlet pipe and throttle body pipe, replaced crank sensor, used Lucas fuel additives, feed my FPR vacuum source to a different one, replace FPR etc etc. It's been so long and so much money has been spent i've lost track of the others ive tried. What fixed it for me was when I had my tranny fluid flushed and replaced in January 2020 (due to a P1710 problem) and now it's permanently gone. Hope this helps you Cheers,
  3. Have you inspected your turbo inlet pipe/hose? I had similar problems, i'd reach boost super quick on partial throttle. Replacing the terribly worn and torn turbo inlet fixed this issue for me. Also greatly reducing the number of knocks. My IAM hasn't dropped from 1.000 since
  4. An on-board scan tool i.e. OBDLINK LX (purchased at Amazon) with BTSSM app to monitor your car's health is something that I have adopted to make sure my car is happy and healthy. I have learned so much from this. Other stuff I do beside the regular six monthly servicing is cleaning the throttle body, clean the MAF sensor, apply a can of Subaru upper engine cleaner and upper cylinder lubricant from Lucas oil. Before I started doing the stuff above on a regular basis, my car ran like sht.
  5. Logged three 2nd gear pulls today, any input will be much appreciated Fingers crossed the links work lol https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sbF6I0rkwS4N2D9TAOLfMkYfqeDVIG0U https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FZIUjBlttGYNisTYVt4gnik4QM_-j5ZX https://drive.google.com/open?id=1xJfix-JVN1ZGVc5HPSRgDWOK13XOtIqs
  6. Excuse my ignorance, all of this is new to me. May I ask how it would read rich if there is a leak after the maf? That would mean more unmetered air going in which should read lean? Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  7. Also, I set my knock event alert to -3 and no events registered Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  8. Hey man, Had the same problem with you. No aux port easily accessible with mine, if any at all but I decided to go with a Grom Bluetooth adapter with mine. Awesome purchase but a little on the pricey side. Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  9. Okay, so my IAM numbers dropped again after a drive last night and has remained the same this morning. I'm new to this logging stuff but I'm going to have a go at it today. Below are the new values. Is it fair to say that the high-ish figures in yellow indicate I am running lean? Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah no catch can and the oil should stay in the inlet and not outside? Time to call strong for Subaru lol Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm 80% confident it is the turbo inlet (but I've been wrong about my car plenty of times lol) because of the oil residue seeping. Oil blow by escaping? It has done 130,000 Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks mate, Yeah I am. I have this very intermittent stumbling issue that I cannot pin point hence me going with BTSSM. I'm getting crazy lean fluctuations on my afr too. Would a weak fuel pump be the culprit? Or perhaps my warped turbo inlet? Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  13. Cool will do. So with the latest LV I posted, would it be fair to say that my car is relatively happy? Or should I still see someone? Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  14. I had my car serviced on Monday. Didn't ask if they touched the ECU but they may have. Sent from my F8332 using Tapatalk
  15. So after a wee bit of driving last night and my drive to work this morning.. below are my updated learned values.. Bizarre or ??
