One test drive of the BRZ on the other hand... That's my next platform; it's just a matter of time. =)

In the meantime: I'm driving my bone stock 95 LX wagon w/automatic and absolutely loving it. It's getting a brake booster upgrade, and some WRX brake hardware, but otherwise I'm not touching it.
Yeah I hear you on the build process of building it to be something it should of been from the factory. I have just owned for so long and each thing I have done to it, just bound me to forever own it. Except now I don't enjoy it as much as I used to.

So like you said about the BRZ, that is going to be the next Subaru I own. Have to wait until next year, as I have my Wedding to pay for this year.

My A/F learning and correction are all over the place... Could be time for a new motor? Hope it's not a ringland. Also one p0304 misfire code, but it didn't return. Not a good week!

My understanding is that the car basiclly ran its self into limp mode and threw misfire codes. I haven't seen the car yet but we we are hoping to not need a new motor sounds like a leak.

It shouldn't. The fuel pump fuse is also your ignition fuse, so if the motor didn't die from a lack of fuel the lack of spark certainly would have killed it. My money is also on a leak.

Saabaru or the STi?

Aron: get a second person, that's my suggestion. :P

STI.... could it be a short? I know I pulled the right fuze. I have not gone crazy yet. I did pull the center counsel out yesterday to install a new arm rest does the wiring run through the that area inside the car?

I don't believe that's where the wiring runs. I still think it's an intake leak somewhere.

I hope so... Nothing has been touched in months on the motor. Driving home my AF correction was +/- 21. Which is nuts. And you tap the gas at all at a cruising speed my AFRs jump to 10.4ish with no boost. I wonder if plugs are fouled from running such a rich tune.

You have a 40% fuel correction? Something is DEFINITELY not right. Send a log to your tuner and ask for some insight, but I'd pour over the engine compartment for a while trying to see if anything is loose.

I know I have missed a lot of this swap, but why stopping now? Is something just not running right?

Not stopping now. Just extremely frustrated. Worked on the car all night and accomplished absolutely nothing.
