Default I have a question about a Rob Tune for the ej20g

i have a jdm wrx wagon "gf8" ej20g swap into a 97 impreza outback wagon.

since the motor came from a jdm wagon, it is running the 90* TD04 instead of the TD05, and i am running a 3b ecu, which hits a peak of 10 psi and tapers to 6 psi by redline.

Can i use a rob tuned ecu designed for a td05 equipped car? Are the ecu's compatible?

i am running all necessary mods for the rob tune:

catless downpipe and catback
perrin catless uppipe
apexi jdm ej20g hi flow air intake kit
usdm STi yellow injectors in ej25d fuel rails
ej20g STi tmic


basically, my question is.."could i use a rob tuned ecu with this motor, or since i am running the td04, would i not be able to use it"?

thanks in advance,

curtis

Its a Tuned ECU. Like anything else that tuned...its customized for the application. SO you let him know what you've done to your car and he makes changes to the tune accordingly.

...to a certain extent, it was actually tuned for his car.
i ran it on my car, pretty much the same mods as u curt, and made good power except with a fmic and td05 ran with ~18psi.. never had time to dyno it..

but now i am curious on my new build. hopefully tomorrow it will start up. i will be running robs chip on my engine and not getting a standalone..

i would suggest getting it, its the most affordable for the 20Gs
