Cranking rpm needs to be set just above the max that ever occurs while cranking, but not so high that your idle rpm could dip below it. Mine is set to 400.


You're asking about the VE table?...

A bone stock N/A NA 1.8 will consistently put down 96/92 hp/tq on the Dyno Dynamics at Ed York's shop. I don't know what the NBs usually put down but if your 2000 is bone stock with just a Megasquirt...

The rear armrest has a pass-through but I'm not sure why Subaru thought the seats shouldn't fold. It makes about zero impact on my life since I still have the old 4runner for moving larger items,...

I wound up buying it after taking another hard look at it and driving it again. The dealership's detailer got the interior much cleaner than I thought they would. Got it up on a lift in one of their...

So you have a CEL on too? If you have a 96 then you're OBD II and should own a code reader (and a timing gun). They are inexpensive tools and quite handy. But yeah, the auto parts store can probably...

Subaru people, give me advice.
