Customer Question
Im looking for advice...

Im looking for advice on rough idling

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the rough idle intermittent or consistent?

Consistent, but goes when applying accelerator

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Subaru?

1994 GF EJ20

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Turbo

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Recently fitted decat up & down pipe, 4 branch manifold, FMIC, induction kit, larger fuel pump, new plugs/oil/filters so am wondering if it's a struggle due to fuel pressure, or problem with ECU not recognising modifications so required mapping
