Default Wiring a Super AFC II in a 2005 2.5 STI

Does anyone have a guide or ecu pinout for a 2005 STI im trying to wire a Super AFC II for my buddy in is STI. But I can't find a pinout for it. Does it use the same pinouts as the 04 model? I have found a link to a site with pinouts but im not sure its right. Has anyone had any experience with the Super AFC II in a 05 model yet?

Thanks!
Josh

Here is that link too. Well its here but im too new to post the exact link

why would he want to use an SAFC when other real tuning alternatives that are much more tunable, and significantly safer are available?

To my knowledge, the SAFC does not work well with the (very smart) Subaru ECU. The factory ECU will attempt to learn around the messed up things that the SAFC is doing and it can only spell disaster. These cars need a holistic Engine Management solution that can address boost, timing, and a host of other offset and learning maps in addition to just fuel.

I think the advice here is going to be: Don't Do It.

I personally am not aware of a single successful installation of a SAFC on an STi. Someone could prove me wrong though.

Thanks for the info. Bottom line is he just got the car not to long ago and its putting money into it. Me being a DSM guy offered up some advice for some type of AF controller.

We have a small race team and im the tech guy for the team so im learning as much as I can about other cars that are on the team. The STI by far is the most backwards out of them all. Its very interesting and im enjoying the learning experience. The reason for the AFC II was becuase I was getting rid of mine for the all famous DSM Link in the DSM world. And I wanted to hookup a teamate with a part.

Thank you for the good info and I will try and talk him out of this and will do more research on the ECU and modifications before pursuing any farther into this endevor.

Thanks again,
Josh

DSM is FAR different than an STi.

The most popular Engine Management solutions that you'll want to research:

Reflash of factory ECU:

EcuTek
Cobb AccessPort

Piggy Back computer:

UTEC
XEDE - not that popular for subbie I guess ... more so for Evo

Stand Alone:

Hydra

Plenty of pros and cons for each solution ... depends on the individual's goals. Search here and you'll find more than you ever wanted to know :-)
