Does any one know if classic impreza's have fuel cut?

Hi all,

My 1999 turbo 2000 keeps dipping in power and gets an engine check light regularly, some times moments after starting, sometimes when givin it beans down the bypass, seems pretty random.

I read a HKS article on fuel cut defenders (I think thats what they called it) that they were selling and the description of the fault that was occuring matched what this device claimed to stop. However I was unsure weather it would be only newer impreza's that would have this as it appeared to be ellectronically tied in with something that the ECU controls?

yes they do, depending on ecu depends when FC is, A HKS FCD is a great device.

I'm running a standard ecu but have done quite a few mods including a bigger fuel pump, decat, headers etc so maybe i need one of those fuel cuts then?

It's finding somewhere that'll remap the standard ECU thats the problem, most places are just tryin to sell me a new one e.g. an ECUTEK an they're just too much money lol
