So I had mucho problemas trying to connect my Win 7 laptop and an XP virtual machine to the hydra. I had both versions of the software on both OS. Even though the guy who sold it to me said the Hydra was v2.6, I got a message that it was not the correct version software for the ECU firmware. I decided to connect with 2.7 and it told me it was 2.7 but a newer version of 2.7. I got connected BRIEFLY one time, and then nothing for the rest of the night. The short time I was connected it looked a little garbled and said the maps were private (locked) and the owner swears there was no password or lock on them. I suspect a bum USB to RS232 cable and will try a new one tonight.
I got the SB9-HDSS which is good for 430 torques. I wanted one that wouldn't shatter my gears like the pucked clutch would have even though I have RA wider teeth. I also risked it with the lightweight flywheel. The strut there is yet another one for the forester since I keep bending them with shenanigans. I already replaced both rears a few months ago.
Old disk was within the proper usable thickness, not sure why it slipped. Do I make too much power?? Evo 3 16G at 15 PSI...
I kinda half-dropped the trans and left the driveshaft in since it's new fluid in there. SUPER FRIGGIN EASY!

I drove barely a few miles since snow hit in MN and already the coilovers are getting nasty.
