oops just saw this, I did try to burp the system again and I got the drivers side fan to kick on. I can't seem to find concrete info on whether or not the passenger side fan is supposed to also kick on at a certain temp, or only when the ac is on...

Also I burped the system and it seemed fine but then when I checked a couple days later, the res only had a little bit of coolant in it. From what I'm reading, when its cold the res should be like half - 3/4's full of coolant? Idk, still trying to find a definitive answer on a couple things here.

Nice to see you are still keeping the journal up, car is looking goodBoobaru2: Betty White? So much for not being OCD again... I actually got super confused after your instagram post with another white GC, and am just now realising that you're still working with the same sedan, lol (I really need to read through the journal)

Thank you! Yeah a lot of people are confused on what I was doing, it was basically a full replacement of the motor and driveline from another white RS (coupe) lol it was essentially a cheap upgrade while being able to por15/truck liner/paint the bay all at once. 4 months later and the sedan feels like a whole new car!

So this past Saturday I drove the car a little over 20 miles, from the garage where I did the swap back to my house, with no issue

The to do list is still long, starting with the most important issue of no fuel gauge reading.
CELs:
p0183 fuel temp sensor circuit high input
p0463 fuel level sensor circuit high input

I have 0 clue when it comes to wiring but seems to be where the issue is considering we tried two different clusters and two different fuel level assemblies (the little floaty guy that sits on the fuel pump assumbly) so I'm lost here lol attempting to make sense of a fuel gauge system wiring diagram I found on ken gilbert's site.

Other than that it's mostly just putting the interior back in, and a few changes to the exterior to finish it up for now.

Sounds like you're on the right track with the fuel *sensor*. I could not make heads or tails of wiring diagrams for a long time until after hours and hours of banging my head against a wall, they started making sense. It's also worth unplugging the battery, the fuel pump sensor and taking a multimeter to the wires to check for continuity and whether they're actually going where you expect them to go. If you're working from a manual that's not an exact match to the car and ECU being used, it's worth checking here: Index of /Auto/Japan/Subaru

edit: typed pump when I meant sensor. Derp.

Well see, now you're way ahead of me. I never thought to cut out the middle man and just smack myself in the head directly. I could have avoided all that drywall damage and sore neck muscles.

Also, if you have the full manual there's a cheat sheet on how to use the wiring diagram. It's still a PITA to trace wires from page to page to page, but at least you have the symbols and abbreviations to work with.

yeah I do have the full manual, thank you I just need to take the time to look at them side by side and try to make sense of it all

went back and added more photos of the progress before the journal was brought back to life. I have a ton of photos that I'll keep adding.

What a journey this has been (and so much for not being OCD on this one...)
