i really like those headlight covers. makes the headlight/corner look like a single piece. i think i may have to find me a set at some point when i have more than zero dollars. lol
They're DIY blacked headlights with e-mark corners! They are no covers lol. Totally gives an R34 headlight vibe. Idk their going price now but they were around $40 when I got them.

If somebody is familar with this setup and can chime in:
I started to play around with ecuExplorer

A few things I'm questioning:
1) P0328 - Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (High Input) - I will verify the 45 degree angle and the torque specs or get a new knock sensor. Currently this is logged in ecuExplorer but the CEL does not light up on my cluster until I hit 3k RPM during driving.

2) The following are reading no values:
Air/Fuel Learning #1 (%) - not sure what this is
Knock Correction (°BTDC) - i'm guessing this is related to the knock sensor issue
CPC Valve Duty Ratio (%) - not sure what this is
Air/Fuel Correction #3 (%) - not sure what this is
Vehicle Speed (KPH) - maybe i need to change the reading to mph but idk why this didn't read when I did go for a drive.



Here's the link to the log csv: Dropbox - ecuExplorer [AF581] 27-11-2017 17h33m46s.csv

Small update.

RS is having a no start issue after I replaced the big-three wires, moved my fuse box back into the engine bay, and changed the battery.

I just ordered a bunch of parts from RallyTech, SubaruGenuineParts, Amazon, eBay, and NASIOC, and YahooAucsJap. Most of the parts are to refresh the engine bay and redo my wiring. A new exhaust (GD SPT or GD Invidia N1) is also being considered.

I finally graduated from college and currently in the middle of finishing CPA exams. I'll have the whole summer to work on my RS so there should be significant updates.
