  1. OK, thanks for the info. I'm not sure if I want to rig something up to power it through a spare set of leads, or just wait until it's installed in the car and worry about it then.
  2. I have a V88 that I bought from a guy way back in 2013, and hopefully in the not-too-distant future I'm finally going to put it to use. The guy I got it from said it had never been installed/used, and I've never done anything with it, so as far as I know it's got the original firmware on it. The sticker on the ECU says: PCB Rev 1.2 Serial # 8219 So, first stupid question - I've found the firmware page (https://www.vi-pec.com/software). Do I need to download/install any intermediate firmware versions, or can I just download and install the most recent firmwar
  3. I'm doing an EZ30 H6 swap into my '97 Subaru Legacy, which originally had an EJ25 H4. Can the V88 convert the tach output so the 4cyl tachometer will display the proper RPMs for the 6cyl? Or will I need to set up a separate tach converter to do that? Thanks!
  4. I'm in the "figuring out pin-outs" stage of installing a V88 in a Subaru Legacy to run an EZ30 6-cylinder (as seen here). One thing I'm trying to figure out is the AUX output(s) for the idle speed control. The ISC is mounted on top of the throttle body and has three terminals: Section 9.4.2 of the V88 manual discusses how to set up a 3-terminal ISC. Section 9.4.5 specifically talks about a Subaru ISC, but that's an older style, which was mounted separate from the throttle body. That older style of ISC appears to have worked the same as desribed for other 3-terminal ISCs i
  5. I've been registered here for a while, but as a reflection of my progress on my project , I haven't actually done anything on the site. I have a '97 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT, which has done daily driver / auto-cross / track day duty for me since I bought it in 2000. The late '90s 2.5GTs were non-turbo, with the DOHC 2.5L EJ25D rated at 165/162 hp/tq. Over the years, I did a variety of modifications to the original EJ25D - ported heads, reground cams, header, etc - that resulted in a significant bump in power, to something around what a stock 2.0L WRX puts down. Yes, I realize many
