I thought he made an adapter plate for an EG33 throttle body... but I was not correct.

Keep me posted on ProjectLambda progress. Curious about 4EAT compatibility.

Project Lambda has broken ALL of the rules and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it. I've reflashed about a dozen maps so far while figuring out the new combination of parts. I thought it was going to be an uphill battle, but no, it's been great.

The lingo and logic of this PCM is a little different. I do believe you have to have very strong computer skills to use the software in its current form. Like any other tuning software, you have to not get greedy and know how to fix little issues without making a mountain out of a molehill. Too often people think the tuning is the problem when something mechanical is the culprit. Tuning on messed up mechanicals is like the La Brea tar pits of car problems. You'll never get out of that sticky mess! I didn't start tuning until I knew the car was 100% mechanically sound.

Bump. All is well. I'm working my way back to 93 octane for mapping purposes. It feels fine with no pinging on an intermediate blend (E30). I'm trading top end power for better torque.

The little shifter boot project is done. I recycled the rubber boot retainer ring and the plastic ring under the boot by the handle. The material is marine grade pleather in a gatorhide pattern. I'll do a brake boot next, and maybe matching shoes and hat .

This engine definitely likes 93. I'm cleaning up the fueling with the capabilities of the software. You can do more than just add or take away fuel. Injector timing, latency, slopes, closed loop, open loop---it's all there.

I still have not managed to raise the redline yet. This particular engine really wants 7000+rpm, but the ECU still won't cough it up. I can lower the rev limit, but not raise, yet. It takes off just in time for the rev limiter to kill the fun. We're working on it. Everything else works like a charm.

Big shout out to Fuji Factory for the tuning tips and tricks along the way. The twin throttle manifold works beautifully on the street. The thundering voice is something I've never heard from a road going Subaru. It sounds every bit like a V8 or Harley all the way through the rev band. Bikes, pony cars, and trucks are hilarious to troll. This is the mouthiest little 2 liter coke bottle.

This project is just intricate enough to keep me occupied and not really be pain to maintain. I'm cleaning up as I go. The driver's side window regulator finally **** the bed, so that will need to be replaced. I'm trying to nail down what I want for door panels that would look decent and shed some more weight. The sound deadening still needs to come out. That will be some dry ice and rubbing alcohol on another day.
