This P0500 code is driving me insane. Not sure what triggers it, but seems to be any throttle input over 3k. After that it fuel cuts at 4.5k and throttles up when I let off to shift. Not helpful. I now hit the clutch and coast for a few seconds before engaging the next gear, waiting, defeating the purpose of removing the automatic trans!!! Looking for a 3 wire VSS but no luck yet, so...

Anyone know how I can get the ecu to not look for a VSS? Can a 2 wire VSS be made to imitate a 3 wire VSS? Can I just give it a couple volts to think it gets signal?

Any help greatly appreciated

So I ended up resolving a bunch of my issues by playing with the neutral position sensor and the 'manual identification pin'. Now I've got a relay basically inverting the operation of the NPS because mine is a legacy trans and it's backwards, and the car drives like a standard should drive from the factory. Mostly.

My theory:
When I engine brake, the rpms are somewhat sustained thanks to the transmission, despite zero throttle input. Without a vehicle speed signal, I believe the ecu interprets the higher than idle rpms as an issue with the idle air control valve. It throws a 1508 (IACV) and tries to stall out when I clutch in after long periods of engine braking because it's trying to close the IACV as much as it can, which it turns out is enough to stall the car. Anyways, it's PERFECT if I don't engine brake.







...And I need to get rid of it. I found what I hope to be my forever daily:
1997 Legacy GT Sedan 5MT in Rio Red.





It's so clean. It's the cleanest car I've ever had! Look at those arches!


Underneath is immaculate, at least for New England. I bought it in Mass with 187k for only $500! It needs a windshield, tires, and head gaskets to be daily-able.
BUT! It comes on adjustable coilovers and has the perfect gearset IMHO.

I'm just so excited about this car! You know I'll be turboing it. The engines formerly meant for my '95 coupe will now go into this car, and the '95 will again have H6 goodness! This time I'm definitely gonna turbo that H6!

Anyway, gotta thin the heard so if none of my friends want the bugeye, it'll be on here cheap. Sure it needs work, but it runs great and doesn't even leak.

Plans for the LGT include a new windshield, tires, GOLD rims, lower, and boost. I can't wait!

Drop the H6 in this and turbo

The chassis is heavier already, need more liters

I agree, but that damn OBD2 is ever a thorn in my side

I set the lofty goals of finishing both my Legacy and my Impreza by the end of this weekend. Well, maybe not finished, but running and driving under their own power. For the Legacy that means:

Remove EJ25D w/ bad head gaskets ✓
Modify crossmember/seal against rust
Clean: everything
Relocate: CC module, CC actuator, main harness connection, ignitor module, and much more
Heat wrap/shield: wiring harnesses, PS lines, AC lines, AC drier/evaporator(?)
Replace master cylinder with Impreza unit, to clear TMIC
Probly forgetting some things. I plan on running it with the waste gate actuator disconnected so it won't build boost until after I get an inspection sticker, then I can screw with electronics.

Engine out, and a dirty, dirty engine bay.



Hopefully I'll get the 'clearancing' done tonight and the new motor in. I've got a decent drive to make to pick up some goodies after work, so it may not get done. I'll get some pics of the goods.

Before:


After:


Comparo:

'97 LGT to the left, circa '99 Impreza on the right.
Surely that's not just another bleed point on the Legacy line, can anybody shed some light?

That should be enough room for the top mount. Hopefully.
