Decating my 06 wrx

Hi Everyone
I have a 2006 wrx 2.5 hawkeye and i want to decat it
i have no worrys over MOT Problems (emissions test) as they do not check it on ST Helena
I have an MIL Eliminator to put on my oxygen sensor but the instructions are telling me to cut two leads ONE BLACK and ONE GREY
But the oxygen sensor leads on my car are The following colours:

Black
Black
Blue
White

I want to find out what colours to cut and
if any one has a web link to another MIL Eliminator that is right for subarus

Your help is appreciated
Thanks

Re: Decating my 06 wrx

you will have running issues if you decat 2.5,ecu will be over compensating for the cat being removed,same if you go cutting wires,if your not sure take it to someone that is,messing about with stuff like that ain't quite an easy diy job..

Re: Decating my 06 wrx

what about buying a lead capable of flashing to your ECU, some guy on NASIOC sells a converted lead, then take a copy of your ECU image, send it to a mapper for them to alter it for your mods, then you flash that to your car,
It could be a good earner for you long term as you say there are very few people capable of this where you are.
