Will that be your final tuning solution, or is ECMlink in the cards?

Not going to lie, I have no idea how to use ecmlink. And my laptop can't hold a charge without being plugged in. I will look for a new battery.

There is a link on ecmlink forum about a $100 windows tablet that would work.

Perfect time to learn. That is what the community is here for. I know little about it also, but learning as I go. I haven't fried anything yet.

I use a Windows 8.1 netbook I picked up at a pawnshop for $75. Only 2gb RAM and a SLOW 120mb hard drive, but it is just for DSMLink, and works great. I upgraded it to Windows 10, it works better there, DSMLink has no issues.

With the info you get on here and ECMLink's wiki/forums, you will be fine with it.

So recently bought a laptop to cause my old one was super slow and folders would not open.
3kgt brakes and 8g brake master cylinder have added a good amount of bite.
Had a problem with battery draining after install of innovate lc2 wideband with auto timer. So ended up disconnecting it. Will have to dive into the wiring when I have a chance.
SSGdave gave me a spare rear subframe he had so will remove the bushings and either sand blast it or wire wheel it. Afterwards I will repaint it and put it away till I find some rear subframe bushings without the mustache bushings. Emailed boostx and I am waiting to hear back. Then I will clean up and repaint the trailing arms I have and install the Jays rear toe eliminators with new hubs and bearings.

Bought a few more parts
Got a ACT flywheel from street surgeon. FedEx sent to the wrong address. And Cory did an amazing job fixing the mix up!

Then got arp crank and cam bolts and Aeromotive fuel rail from street surgeon.

Found a new ACT 6 puck sprung
I will be on the look out for a ACT 2600 pressure plate

Well ordered a couple more parts!
Got a sd bundle from ecmlink

And then got a fuel lab fuel filter with lines

And got a hold of Jon (boostx) and got a set of rear subframe bushings

Here is the rear subframe I will be working on

Today, I was watching the demo videos on ecmlink and started to play around. I have been getting some knock on acceleration so trying to figure this out. I ended up just putting the evo 9 injectors in a couple weeks ago cause SSGdave needed the 510cc injectors I had and the dsmchip I had. So will continue to try to research and understand ecmlink.

Oh and decided to just order a new oem oil pump and various parts from Jnz. Josh called the next day to talk about the parts! Caught me by surprise especially cause he called 6:30pm pst. I must say he is an awesome guy! So those parts should be here in a couple days.

So this week I had an injector squirt fuel out the top seals on the 1150cc injectors so replaced all the seals then took for a spin around the block. The car didn't feel like it was getting into boost so searched for loose couplers and couldn't find any. So drove the galant to my parents house to look in their garage. I ended up seeing that the cotter pin for the wastegate actuator was gone and the actuator was disconnected. So spent a couple hours fixing that and now it pulls appropriately.

Some parts have come in!

For the rebuilt block I ended up ordering a new oil pump with gears.
Along with this order got various hardware, new dipstick and tube, and a few other parts for the engine rebuild.

Got a 3 piece crossmember from true street fab

And a set of euro ambers from Ahmad. Hopefully they sit in place better than the depot ones that are on the car now.

Since I got a rebuilt transmission and rear diff, decided on ordering a rebuilt transfer case from tmz.

Got a turbosmart bov because it was a bolt on flange and its black

Waiting on a new clutch pedal assembly/rebuild kit on the way.
She should be able to make it to MOD as it is right now. Not sure when all a majority of parts will go in. Anticipating a move to Virginia in the near future. Awesome thing is we will be super close to JNZ!

Thanks Brett!
Will be in Arlington. I don't know the area at all. My girlfriend is from Va and wants to be closer to family.

Well we don't have a date at the moment but my girlfriend wants to be there before August. I'll have to search for some place to store the car and parts. Oh and jobs for us.
If we are in Virginia by August I have a room at Shoot out just in case we are out there.

So in preparation to our move to Va I had to organize all the parts in my parents garage. Here are some of the boxes. Wish I could have spent more time organizing the boxes better but will have to do till I can afford to ship and store the car and parts out. This is about have of what I have collected.

Nice updates with a lot of new goodies! The cotter pin had backed out of my WG on my Evo 3 16g as well. Haha. That is why I just ended up swapping the turbo before mod. I took it as a sign.

Oh and I forgot I bought these during Black Friday. New lifters, clutch line, Waldrop 450 with install kit, bronze guides and +1mm valves.


And I also bought a cylinder head from one of the guys on here.

Haha...you have too many cars! It is safely tucked away at my parents but I want it on this side of the USA!

Side note I traded my Xterra for a 2010 forester XT. I got super great deal on wrx suspension, 20mm rear sway bar, and sit cat back (all for $450). And I'm trying to get a set of 2011 wrx wheels but seller and I have conflicting schedules. Hopefully I can get them this weekend. Here is one of the pics I have of my xt
