All chassis numbers begin with B.

F = 3600cc 4WD


All chassis numbers begin with G

All chassis numbers begin with S

Gen 1 = S10 = SF wagon (no Forester sedan) = MY96 - MY02

Gen 2 = S11 = SG = MY02 - MY08

Gen 6 = BN sedan BS wagon. 


Note: As of Gen 6, Subaru no longer manufactures Legacy wagons, Gen 6 wagons are Outbacks.


M = 2500cc 4WD exclusive to Gen 5 Legacy - refers to FB25 in MY12+



All chassis numbers begin with V.






VM4: Levorg, FB16.

VMG: Levorg, FA20.



ZC6: Subaru BRZ

ZN6: Toyota 86

Kia ora Soba. I guess I just want some good info. I know it's a bit of a stock standard wee suby, but I know little about the engine, hp, fuel consumption, and all that jazz. When I do a search around the traps I get TA-BP5 or CBA-BP5, but nothing like the model code I have. I figure the D is for 4th year, ie 2007, but what about the K9S? I bought it thinking it was the 160hp 2.0R, but it could be something different...

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
