Richard, I finally have time to look back into this problem. Now that it is summer the gauge just does it more constantly. Whenever during hotter days the w. Injection led on the gauge just lights up. When the system sprays the led would turn off but when it's done spraying the led would turn back up again. Eventually after a 15 minutes drive the problem would disappear. On cooler days it never does it

I thought bubble was building up in hot days when the car was parked but when I touched the flow sensor and turbine they aren't not even hot. They are also mounted at a well ventilated area anyway. I disconnected the 6mm line by the flow turbine thinking may be too much pressure or eventually bubble built up and caused the w. Injection light on gauge to turn on, that didn't solve the problem either. I tried increasing fsdl like you that but that also didn't resolve the problem.

I just worry that something is malfunctioning if the w. Injection light on the gauge is on now that my car is tuned for math injection. I don't want my motor to blow because of that...

The aquamist sensor is solely designed and manufactured by us in house. We do not supply this sensor to any other wmi makers.


That is awesome. Do you sell your flow sensors separately? If the output is a linear 5volt like the old one, I would like to use your sensor. If not , do you guys have a stand alone flow gauge?

Please tell me your settings:
1. No of jet and sizes
2. WL, WL and SC
3. Fuel injector size
4. Thres trimmer setting
5. Gain trimmer setting
6. Flwo table.

I just read your post on the other thread, it appeared that you have solved the heat related problem

The only thing I have concern with is the calibrations (pulses per cc etc) between the systems. We have sensor with pulse output and 0-5V output.

Richard pulled the flow sensor apart. Everything internally was clean and the green turbine inside flowed freely in both directions. Still have the same issue with everything together

Just making sure. Got to recheck my wiring and see if my jumper is setup correctly

OK, good mechanically. Here is one more possibility, rare but has happened.

1. The wire run from the controller to the flow sensor is not shielded, if the cable is routed along side a ignition wire or the sensor is close to a device with magnets. It will interfere with the readings.

2. The plastic divider between the gold fingers of the RJ connector may be slightly bent, giving inconsistent electrical contacts.

First step, reposition the yellow harness a bit off the normal run is see what happen. Then move the FAV slight of the fire wall ledge. Make sure there isn't a wiper motor near it.

So difficult to trace an intermittent problem. This is the first time I saw the FAV placed in this position.

I believe I have already responded to your pm at the aquamist forum. To avoid CEL, you must activate the DR1 jumper. Before you do this, make sure the wiring is correct. White and brown wire the grey connector.

Post the wiring diagram you followed for the install here.

1. Where is the SC setting?
2. Just for a quick test, Set the Threshold to 11am. Let me know.
3. Can you link the FDC (gauge is hijacked to display 0-100% FIDC) and tell me how many bars is displayed at full power.

750cc x4 = 3000cc/min. Based on M50W50 at 20% to fuel = 600cc/min.

So for DP , you divide the flow between 4x CVJ (90cc/min) jets and 1x post IC jet (300cc/min). You need to order the DP jets from me as we do not advertise smaller than 140cc.

I used the 06 wrx on the aquamist forum- Thank you for replying this morning.
Just about to leave the shop and check my setup when I get home. Hopefully
it was a simple late night mistake and didnt look at the dr1 jumper.

Thank you for replying so quickly.

You have sorted out the safe mode connection with the CLP removed. I wasn't aware you were using both failsafe channels.

I have moved the FAV valve off the fire wall and i wrapped it in fiberglass heat shield from there FAV to the firewall just for giggles. no change in intermitted operation. also double checked all connections for damage or improper connection and everything looks ok

You still experiencing the intermittent problem?

I suspect there may be some dimensional changes in the internal sensor geometry. I like to send you a new sensor core, if it works perfect, I like you to USPS the current sensor back to me to do some intensive examination. I will paypal you the postage. Pm me your address.

Just a quick market research, any feedback and impression on the 2015 wrx with DI fueling system?

Any good tunes for it?

COBB Tuning just released Beta tuning software for it this week. I imagine it will be a good 2-3 months before more is known on teh tuning side of the DI Fueling system. As with other car manufacturers that made this change (audi, etc), that the long term effect will be a positive one. It will just take a while for adaptation.
