Apexi power fc ecu and commander

I'm in the process at the moment gathering a few bits for the next stage in my mod programme. Extra engine power.

I have here a version2 STi wagon (1996) running at the moment with a std output at approx 260bhp. Thought l'd push the boat out a bit more and see if i could get 300+.
It's been mentioned to me that my current ECU's not possible to remap and that a replacement one is required.

Apexi power fc ecu and a commander has been mentioned as a good sound replacement.

Will this fit and run ok on an version2 car?

Somebody suggested to me it wouldn't work on a 1995 JDM car. Seeing the two cars are so close in years whats the score?

Cheers guys.

Right i have an answer to my question. Apexi ECU will fit providing i get the correct set up. Be told that my classic version2 has four electrical plugs. Have to have a look now.

So there you have it. Just thought i'd post my findings so far.

It will work without any problems as long as you have the right ECU for the relevant year/model.

I'm running a MY94 JDM on the power fc - [/list]

Many thanks for that. Just been out to the car and my current ECU certainly has four electrical connections to it.

Don't suppose you know the part number etc of the Apexi power fc ecu for my car?

1996(N)..........WRX STi.........version2
Engine number...........EGF8EJ20

I'll try and get it over the next few days for you. However, you need the one for:

Impreza, 92.11~96.9 GC8.GF8 EJ20G.

Hope that helps if you are in a rush. BTW, where are you going to get it from? Do you want the commander?

You could always get an all-in deal from Andy Forrest (www.andyforrestperformance.co.uk).

Thanks for that Highlander. No real rush but if you come across the number in the week that would be great.

I have sourced a second hand Apexi ecu and commander thats never been used and still boxed. Unfortunatly the chap concerned is having to sell the car along with a collection of bits he's had for a mod or two. Excellent price.
Failing that Rob at Endless Racing Design can supply me an ecu and commander. Very helpful knowledgeable chap. I've mailed him regards the p/n as well.

Never thought of Andy to be honest at least not supplying parts. I did mail him for some advice on a tmic that i intend fitting.

Additional info i have just received mate as written on the box,

Subaru
GC8/GF8 EJ207

:wink:


Thanks for you help so far mate. If you can get a part number that would be great :wink:

Thanks bud for that. Really not sure what to make of that number to be honest. Still none the wiser

I think before i commit myself i really need to speak to somebody who can supply a modal number on this one.
