I took that video because I'd like to organize a possible Saturday afternoon hill climb race this summer...maybe.
Who would be interested?

Prepare to be impressed.
Min, glad to see that thing back on the road. Looks good, sounds awesome.
Yeah, YT has been loading pretty slow for a day or two for me.

I think you mean the other way. Besides everybody knows the IDs run better with a high fuel pressure.

no cones. I told you, it's all about teaching you how to post good driving videos.

I need a good camera mount. Zip ties cause incorrect angle, and when a passenger holds the camera, it bounces everywhere.

?

But when I -raised- the pressure on my FPR my AFR leaned up. ???


Also I don't care if the injectors run better or not, I just don't want to have to pay the $1000 for the stupid ID2000s. I don't want to have to buy injectors for this car a third time :(

Raising it puts more fuel into the injectors. Period.
However,
when you're at the limit of your pumps flow capacity, lowering the pressure might squeeze out an itty bitty more fuel when you're getting close to the limit.

Remember that fuel pump chart? I know someone still has it, if so please post up. Basically the x/y axis' are pressure vs flow more pressure less flow and vice versa. Or something to that extent.



And Fae, take a few minutes to read this thread:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2294126

at some point the top dogs of subaru tuning start discussing exactly what you're doing: compensating for lack of fueling with meth injection.

The conclusion: if you're running out of injector/pump, get more injector/pump. Otherwise you are on your way to epic failure.

Seriously. Read it.
