Need Configuration settings Link G1 for Subaru EJ20 turboPosted by Craig Tanson at March 17. 2012
I have a Link G1 wired up to a subaru 1993'ish JDM EJ20G turbo engine in a 1967 VW bug. I would like to set the configuration on the ecu so I can get the car started. I plan to have the car tuned professionally but need to get it started so I can get it up on the trailer, move it around, etc. I don't know where to begin with the different settings in PCLink to get it running. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is there a file I can upload to the G1 that will get the car running and have the correct settings? I have two coil packs, so I think that means it's wasted spark and also I'm using the factory subaru timing wheel.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a cool project, I bet it will be pretty quick once all set-up. How did you do your intercooler setup?
Link G1 ECU's have a triiger sub-board that is specific to the type of engine you want to run the ECU with. Has your G1 ECU come off a subaru? If not you will need to have the sub-board changed.
If your ECU does have the subaru sub-board you should just be able to set your ignition setup to wasted spark, do a TPS calibration and that should get you running.

Scott, thank you for the link. I will look at this. I purchased the ecu used from a person who was using it on a subaru powered dune buggy. At that point, it was programmable by the handheld programmer. I contacted a Link tuning shop here in California for assistance connecting the ecu to my laptop. They sold me a comlink box to connect to my ecu. Then when it would not connect, I sent in my ecu, they in turn sent it to Link USA to be converted/upgraded to connect with a laptop to the ecu. So I am assuming that it has the trigger sub-board that is specifically for the subaru motor.
To see more of what I'm doing, here's the link to my build thread, http://shoptalkforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=134735&p=1052817#p1052817
The intercooler is placed above the engine in line with the air flow coming in to the beetle's engine compartment. I had to fabricate a pipe that is basically a V pipe to connect the intercooler to the throttle body. I'm still finishing up connections such as the blow off valve and the turbo to intercooler pipe.

I'll have to have a read over your project thread. I have a 63 beetle on a 69 floorpan, and am building a 1776 turbo engine for it slowly.
I have put together a map that should hopefully run your setup, it is attached to this post.
Give it a try and let us know,

Thank you so much for the map. I will load it and when I'm ready to run the motor, I will definitely let you know. I understand the slow part of the process, I have been working on subaru conversion for almost five years as I have time and money. You should definitely check out www.thesamba.com and http://forums.aussieveedubbers.com/ lot of great info on these sites.
