Best bet is to look for a kit on amazon or ebay, run your vin # on subaru or parts souq.com to get the individual part numbers and compare it to the part numbers in the kit. Sometimes there are upgraded part numbers or alternative part numbers. I think the two rollers on the right side are the same..

There is an asin kit, I bought the oem because I run the car hard sometimes amd didnt wanna take chances. Iirc asin makes the parts for subaru.

Yea, my boss bought the asin for his fozz and had no issues.

Like I said, wasnt taking chances so I bought oem for mine. Last thing I need is a belt skip timing, roller fail or some shiz like that in some high rpms esp since I gunna turn up the power in the near future.

Hey fellas.. got a cable the other day.. drove the car for about half hour and did about 3 second gear pulls.. when I got back home logs show my iam is 0.5625 and within the last 5-10 mins of the drive it was around 0.8

I know it's supposed to be 1.0
I only use premium and my ECU tune supposed to be stock.. to me the car totally fine and feels more or less close to when I got it a year ago.. should I reset the ECU and see if it fixes itself?

It would be a never ending cycle with an aggressive 100 RON tune that is being used with 98 (or whatever we get at the pump) RON fuel.

Lowered IAM is a sign of knock..."all turbo engines knock from time to time" knock reduces life of an engine.

The fine learning knock control only drops below zero under wot 4300-5800 rpm.. under normal driving it's zero.. I more or less understand how the iam works in conjunction with knock control.. so in theory a retune should fix it?

Yeah a retune "should" fix it.

Hi, I have a sg5 2.0 xt automatic with a 3'' catback exhaust. I'll like to know what are my options when it comes to getting it tuned. Is EcuTek the only option for me? Not looking to get crazy with mods, its just to have the wagon running efficiently.... most I will do to it is water/meth next year, maybe a downpipe.

Ecutek basically. Unless you decide to go standalone. Do all the mods before you tune. And I mean all.

IAM IS a knock control strategy (along with fine learning and feedback knock correction). IAM just paints with a broad brush and pulls timing across the entire RPM/load range.

You should be concerned with most forms of knock. But you should be most concerned with knock that occurs under WOT conditions. These are likely to be most dangerous as they typically occur under high RPM/load situations.

I think he means that opensource tuning doesn't support this ECU. ECUTEK does

Yeah all my research keep leading me to EcuTek. A standalone management is way overkill for the level of performance I'm looking at.

Guess I'm going to have to hold off on tuning because right now I cant afford to do the mods I want and tune. BTW how much does it cost to get the car retuned after the initial tune?

Think it was a transfer of license. Jason approached rtune to take it over.
