Exclamation Tuners! 02 Rst Need Serious Help Please!!!

I installed the Ludespeed Stage III on my 2002 RS. The Link Plus that came with the kit has fried my coil for some reason. I got a new one and every time I go to start the car the coil gets hot again. Eventually it will fry again.

Is there a difference between the Link Plus 2001 and 2002 plug/play harness? That would explain the coil burnout. If so I was sent the wrong harness. By the way I'm also using a J&S safeguard.

What engine management systems are people using on their 2002 RST's?

I was looking at selling the Link Plus because it isn't user friendly and getting the Super AFC II along with the VC1 by Splitsecond (voltage sensor). I don't want CEL. And with 6.6 psi I need good engine management for a daily driver. Tuners only PLEASE HELP!!

Thankx,
Kripski

If you don't know how to tune the Link, find some one who can or learn how. The SAFC will not get you nearly as reliable as the Link can. The Greddy e-manage would be much better than an SAFC, but still not as good as the Link. Seriously, take it to get it professionally dyno tuned if you don't know how to use it, that's the best option.

If I went with the SAFC what exactly would I be missing out on? What are the major differences between the two set-ups?

Everything. The SAFC does fuel only. And only lets you do it based on RPM and throttle position. It has no input to adjust fuel in relation to boost. Or any sort of timing control. Or the ability to add more fuel when you are at the limit of the stock MAP sensor (3 psi). Its really not a good solution. The Link is a full standalone ECU that lets you control any parameter of the engine management that you want. Its the safest way to have an RS-T, assuming you get it professionally tuned.

Do you know if there is a difference between the 2001 RS and 2002 RS in terms of ECU wiring?

I appreciate the help guys. Does anyone know where to get a Link+ fuel map for a Ludespeed Stage 3 set-up? WRXhackers doesn't have one.
