If you can pm me the price, that would be good too.
They showed me the numbers before and after but I didn't get a copy to bring home sorry.

I just got an invoice also sorry, plus Bob Rawle looked at the car with regards the map. Even though he didn't do anything I imagine I was charged for his time.
Had some camber bolts also and the bill was about 300 iirc.

Engine mods for the below are:

Turbo back heat wrapped Milltek Twinscroll exhaust
Walbro fuel pump
3 Port boost solenoid
Cosworth panel filter
Bob Rawle Racerom remap (High/Low boost settings, launch control, FFS, Auto-blip on downshift & in gear boost control)

Nice clean looker. 370 is nice power. Hoping for similar myself

What 3-port did you go with as need to pick one up myself

I wasn't sure so have just been out to take a look and it says Pierburg on it


It was sourced & fitted for me by Chevron.
Chevron also sourced and fitted the Hatch specific Walbro pump they recommended over the RCM one I had bought. They also prefer the K&N panel filter to the Cosworth one.
I trust Simon 100% and followed his advice & don't regret it at all.

Have to agree with you 100% with regards to Simon at Chevron, he had my car last week for a set of new tyres and quit a few handling upgrades on my 2011 Saloon and the transformation in handling is unbelievable, he is a Master at what he does and a true gent..........

Simon is a lovely guy. He was busy as hell when I collected my car getting ready for a Time Attack weekend at Brands but still showed me around his place and we had a good chat about cars in general.

I was finding my car wouldn't get the miles to a tank I expected. With the help of Bob Rawle and Andy Clark of AC Speedtech it was clear I needed a new front Air/Fuel sensor.
Andy Clark could see what the sensor was doing (using Ecutek)and it was taking a long time to heat up. Great service from Andy, booked me in at short notice diagnosed the fault + 2 cups of coffee and no charge



I got the correct part number thanks to The Don Clark. One of his old posts was also assuring:

Ordered through ICP and it arrived the next day.
Andy Clark fitted it and logged the car again and mentioned the Advance Multiplier was at 0.75 and he'd done plenty of runs that would usually bring it back 1....... Andy said it would probably just take a little more time & so did Bob.



Andy and basically every GTR owner that I met in the AC Speedtech waiting room recommended the ECU Connect Ecutek bluetooth dongle. So I got one delivered. But couldn't get it to power up from the OBD port. Ecutek customer support was awesome, I got a message from Paul Blamire which made me feel really special . The issue was my OBD port, when plugged into another car it works spot on. So I powered it with a powerbank and was good. I'll get the OBD sorted soon.

The ECU Connect app is really easy to use, I've only played with it a little but my advance multiplier was already at 1 and the log I sent to Bob was all good.
Ecutek have sent Bob some beta updates so he can add more functionality and RaceRom goodies to the map/app. Like live adjustment of launch control, valet mode etc.



0-60 1st attempt, it was a little slippery with DCCD in Auto, traction control on, no LC or FFS:

My Km/h to mph conversion is out & I'm sure I was slowing down before it beeped

Very peculiar that nearly every Jdm hatch that as been mapped has led to a lambda failure all most immediately

Lets hope it's just an age thing, it would be peculiar if it went within a year or so.

Most are over 7 years old when they arrive, so ripe for failure, like rubber suspension mounts and bushes perishing.
On a brighter side, I'm enjoying your thread alot, great info and feedback for Jdm hatches.

As Don said, they commonly last around 7 years. When they become lazy the ECU compensates.

If you'd like I could send you the ECU Connect by post and you could do a log which might help diagnose the problems?
Bob's map on mine drives awesome, seems to be giving a good MAF voltage/ using plenty of grams/s etc. Most importantly the Advance Multiplier is exactly where it needs to be.
PM me your address and I'll post it out, just send it back when you're done

Moral of the story:
Bob's maps and customer service are excellent.
AC Speedtech are 10/10 also and highly recommended
Ecutek again are awesome, with rapid replies from legends of the Subaru world.
ECU Connect is very handy to check everything is A-OK.

Next plans for me is to save up some money and get some decent suspension from Chevron.The Cusco on now are letting the car down.

I had to park on an average kerb, but with the Cusco needing to be so low it scratched my splitter which resulted in a crack to the bumper Any higher and they're too close to the bump stops. With only 80mm total travel they're not very useful.

Good news with an easy fix too

I like the sound of the ECU Connect Ecutek bluetooth dongle - where did you get yours from?

Great thread. Do you have a link for the sensor? May aswell change mine when it gets serviced as a precaution.

But always best, especially with your spec C, to give ICP your chassis no. to double confirm. I needed the front one.

With the ECU Connect you can see how long it takes for the sensor to get going = if it needs changing. If was in your shoes I'd rather spend the money on the ECU Connect than the sensor. I'm sure it will still work for logging even though your OS mapped, but email/facebook message ecutek to confirm.

Thanks for the update, I really enjoy reading your thread and glad you got it sorted .
Out of interest, is the front sensor different to the 2.5 model?
For what it's worth, wideband sensors are sensitive to being knocked, as well.

A change in downpipe and careless handling of it could be an additional potential reason it has failed.

@Abbas, what suspension does Simon recommend for these cars?

Let us know what was the issue with the OBD port.

Thanks

Mine was unhappy with a dongle plugged in; it went into limp until I removed it.

I've not asked Simon yet Re: suspension. Hopefully bonesetter will have an update soon.

I look at these regularly:
Ohlins

And:
R205

But I'm going to have to wait till after Easter as I'm poor

Paul said it's a contact issue with the 12v power coming out of OBD. Quite common apparently. Thankfully I live very close to a fantastic auto electrician who will sort it no problem I'm sure.
