In case any of you guys paid attention to any of my posts, the SAFC was installed friday night into my 95 Impreza 1.8L, successfully, only put ourselves in limp mode once and did some slight tuning today. tomorrow morning (Sunday) we're going for a mountain run, then tuning the SAFC some more. will shoot you guys some info on the install sometime this week, as not much info on this install is available for the 1.8

out of curiousity, why do you need an SAFC on the 1.8L? It's not like it has a chance to produce a lot of power, or anything....unless you have done some mods to it.
<<-- used to have a 1.8, am now very happy with my 2.5

congrats on the installation, though! I may end up putting one in in the future. I run a bit lean on the low rpm's, since the swap

intake, exhaust, bad gas mileage and future plans

as it is right now, it feels a bit quicker than my 2.2 did with the same mods, sans the safc.

Bad gas mileage may be caused by a failing O2 sensor or one that is fouled up with carbon. How old are they and when was the last time they were replaced?

You can tune around it, but it will only get worse. And at somepoint, you'll run out of tuning to compensate for it. Better to just spend the $60 on a replacement sensor than try and work around it.
