No mass air flow meters have a limit to the amount of air thy can read. You will probably max it out with very low amounts of boost. Plus I am sure your ecu will get pissed off seeing the meter past its normal range of operation.

I know very little about subarus. You may have to look into crap piggy backs or stand alone ems.

i have an openport i can sell you for reflashing the ecu
but you NEED to figure out what ecu you have.

www.openecu.org
www.nasioc.com
www.scoobymods.com

register, look around, SEARCH, then ask questions.

so instead of burning the chip you flash the ecu? does the ecu need modification? or is it just wires connecting into the ecu?

you need to find the definitions for your 98 rs

you plug the d-check connectors around the column somewhere, plug in the odb2 reflash cable, and reflash

what do you mean by definitions? im only trying to get like 5-6psi out of it because its a 98 gt with the high compression 2.5. do i realy need to reflash, or can my maf compensate for this low amount of boost? i dont want to go all out it just needs a lil more pep so i can atleast chirp the tires.
