    Default New White RS

    Late last year i had the opportunity to purchase my first RS. I am not new to Gen 1 Subarus but to have a genuine bc5 means a lot to me.
    After paying for the rs the seller offered to drive it to my house.
    I decided to go for a quick squiz up and down the road with my father. I happily parked it in the backyard.
    After about 20 minutes i had a mate come by and inspect yet another gen 1 i had purchased and like some curse, the car didn't want to start. Months went on and it just sat there! It was moved to and from different parts of the backyard thanks to the very powerful starter motor.
    After months of battling out what could have possibly gone wrong the issue was fouled/fuel soaked spark plugs.
    This was thanks to the amazing Link g1 Install that was running a mafless tune.

    Being a uni student i had a small break for the Easter holidays. My goal was to have it road registered by the end of these holidays.
    It came to me wanting to get this thing on the road around April. I had organised a BCAA gearbox out of a wrecker to be swapped into the car in a leisurely afternoon due to the existing gbox having stripped 3rd gear.
    I am a person that want things done quickly, so its off my mind and can move on to something else at hand but this bit me in the ass. I foolishly worked under jack stands on grass.
    The story of my rs takes a mega turn with me being rushed to hospital. The Alfred hospital staff were amazing and diagnosed me with 5 broken ribs, Broken Sternum and Collapsed Lung within an hour of the accident.
    I am a very lucky person.
    The car was left for about 5 weeks before i started collecting the remains of a freak accident and shortly after finished the job at a petrol station on a weekend.

    Fast forward to this past mid semester break from uni i have finally gotten the car through a roadworthy and registered in Victoria.
    The car has passed a roadworthy inspection but it has several wiring issues.
    The wiring had been seen by a few of my Subaru mates and they have all told me the same thing
    REWIRE THE CAR!!!
    when i had purchased the car it had a 3 plug Link g1 (should be a standalone ecu) Piggy backed to the factory ECU.
    That's right Two ecus, that should be running as stand alones. *MINDBLOW*
    To get the car running for a RWC i had plopped in a 6S and a orange maf.
    Car runs and drives but when the engines cold ish it feels like it hits a wall in the tune when i try and creep it up on boost.

    I am now on the lookout for a PFC 4 Plug and wanting to Sell/Swap my 3 plug- Yes i know i jumped the gun.
    Will be rewiring the whole car from a spare g1s2 Legacy import i have (Yessssss Climate control goodness)

    Making it up in the world and now owning a 25 year old car has proved to be challenging but i guess i dont need to jack the car to change the loom

    Far out! I'm guessing the car fell on you? How long where you stuck under there?
    What's an "RX" if you dont have a "W"! HeHe

    Shit dude, one hell of an intro
    Having a fast FWD is like coming out of the closet. Sure you will surprise some people but in the end, everyone knows you're gay.

    Only just reading this now - and far out, I can't believe you ended up in hospital over this build.

    I'm looking forward to pics/updates ;)

    Cheers
