Right! a WRX ecu is probably what I need. I know that involves a few sensor changes, and the crank gear. Something to look in to! Why can't you pass smog with the carberry rom? We have plug in emissions that look for certain CELs to pass/fail. I don't think PL has the resolution I need. -10 to +15 in a 16 cell table... gross.as a fellow motor blower, its time for open source tuning. Wether it be proj lambda or a wrx ecu swap. Both should be smog compliant. The wrx ecu has the advantage of all the built in boost tables like the all important over boost fuel cut, and injector scaling tables. Im not sure what lambda has defined but i would assume its limiting for boost applications.
i did the wrx swap but use the carberry rom, which wont pass smog. but i got it passed and now just keep it under 5k miles a year so i dont have to worry about it anymore
Easier than a harness merge, more difficult than a piggy back. An MS3-Pro box isn't going to be any more difficult than a Haltech, that's for sure. From an installation sense that is.A cooler would be active cooling, more capacity would be passive. My only qualm with Project Lambda is the cost of flash licenses. How "easy" was your MS Fryphax?
I have actually been bouncing this around in the back of my head. They're much more stout from what I've read. A bit less power but nothing a pound of boost or two can't make up for.might also try stepping down to the 2.2 block..terry had really good results with it. and..knock on wood...im at about 40k miles of boost on mine with over 300k on it. didnt even boost it till ~275k.
