OK attempting to upload video. It is a bit loud and annoying due to me using my cell phone and it having a crappy mic. Anywho here is what she is doing on idle/start up. It does not get any better when warmed up. And air intake is freaking loud and annoying.

Ugh, still not idling correctly. I need to check the signal from ecu to IACV but dont really know how. I do not have a voltmeter or the sweet skills to know what to check. I would like to get her road ready as we may be heading to Utah (.....Suparu.....) next month instead of Laughlin, NV. 

lemme know, and dates if a Utah trip does come together.  Which rig(s) would you bring?

 

That silly idle's got to G O.

Well its really up in the air as far as dates go. Need to sort out my idle issues and my brothers Forester is getting a new motor. But my Grandma is not feeling well and that sounds like a good excuse to go up to Utah and visit. We will definetly make a good adventure out of it  :)

That seems kind of extreme, but a wandering idle is frequently just a sticking PCV valve. They're cheap, and usually very easy.....I'd start with that.

aaaaaahhhhhh it was the ecu this whole time. I was given the wrong ecu with my swap, I had a maf ecu (98/99) not a map ecu (2000/2001) with the correct ecu she purrs like a kitten!!! 

 

Bleed brakes, mount and wire headlights and call the insurance company!!! Im back on the road!!

So i can get a freeee ecu from a 2000 auto rs or a $90 one for 01 5spd. I think the years will both work but every other person I talk to says the auto will give me some extra cels for no inputs from an auto trans. I like the free price tag though. 

 

Thoughts, suggestions?

The difference is in the harness. If you've got a 5MT harness, it will have the AT/MT identification pin in it (which should be grounded), which will tell the ECU that the vehicle is a MT. If you have an AT harness, it will not have that pin...

so i ended up getting the correct ecu for free! I drove my car for the first time in a year and a half! Only about a half mile off road, I have a split cv boot and did not want to sling grease all over the clean engine bay.

I really hope i don't have any issues with the law using these lights. They are only 55w bulbs. I will be using the two inners as low and all four on as high. I know the bulb its self is they same you can buy for replacement in a Jeep or the like with round style lamps.
