Hey guys, i'm new on this forum. I have 1991 Legacy 2.2 N/A. What i want to do is to swap EJ20T from Forester Turbo S or WRX in my Legacy. I know everything what i need to do. Only the question is about wiring. Can I use WRX / Forester Turbo S wiring loom and adapt it to 2.2 Legacy wires or what? BTW i'm gonna run VEMS stand alone ECU

Well it all depends on the ECU, is it a ‘plug-in’ for a specific generation? Or does it use its own proprietary connector. If it’s proprietary, then you adapt your factory loom to suit, if its a plug-in, for let’s say, v5/v6, then you’ll have to track down some of those connectors to suit, then adapt them in.

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!
