Nice one, love a white wagon :)
Just make sure your planned power level suits your AT, or look into some mods to the box to suit that power...

Hi BBB, Thanks for the advice! I got in contact with Kewish Auto who quoted me a rough price over the phone that is pretty reasonable, so might get a valve body mod and clutch packs done before Christmas ;)

Bit of an Update also:

Got my Slotted rotors and Pads installed!

That's great! Who is on the tuning duties?
Fairly sure those mods need a tune like, immediately, failing that, really poodle it in "i" mode if at all :)

Decided to check out the tune that was already in the car using RomRaider. I think it may have already been modified as the target boost table hits a maximum of 17.6psi?? I thought the maximum on stock tune (Subaru factory) was 13.5psi or there abouts...

Hmm very interesting... :shock:

Also i drove the car today and have Error code P0108 Map Senser high showing up... it comes up straight after flashing a rom to the ecu without even starting the engine...
Any one have any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this, is it related to having a vacuum leak somewhere?

Scroll down for the general diagnostic procedure...
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0108

Some of the vac hoses eg ebcs/boost controller & purge control, at the front of the inlet mani can get brittle and break, also the one at the nipple on the pass side inlet mani for the fpr iirc.

Check the turbo vac lines are around the right way too, if those were messed with ;)

Use small zipties on all connections whilst you're at it!

Thanks BBB!
I checked the MAP sensor following those instructions and the P0108 Fault code went away :D
However i also found that Ive forgotten to connect (Or it has popped off) a hose and sensor connector that are located under the wiring harness that runs at the back of the inlet mani, just near the turbo. Might be a coolant line... Lucky i brought my tools to work Haha :)

Even without looking up the exact model, I'm 99% sure those are stock tables... both tables have the exact shape of stock tables. If someone did alter them, they put in a lot of effort to not make them any better or worse in any way.... :lol:

What makes you say the DBW has been altered?

Those are not the tables from your car.

Possibly from a postFl tbSti (notice the horrible 2D DBW table. No Liberty came like that from factory, while the tbSti was "enhanced" at Sti Australia).

That boost table you posted just now, also doesn't look much like stock Subaru work. So quite possibly it's a ROM from a tbSti or someone who thought they had a stock ROM, but it was actually previously modified by a 2 year old.

Compare to any WRX or Sti tune and you'll see much more similarity to what you pulled out of your car.

That's a clue as to why many a postFl tbSti have gone through an engine or two on an otherwise stock car. :oops: :angry2:
