Just as if you don't have a set of inverse torx, your garage is poorly stocked.

      It drives much better, its got more room, I can haul dirt bikes easier, has a higher towing capacity, and gets about the same gas mileage as the ranger. At times I miss having a truck that's a little easier to maneuver and smaller, however the benefit of being able to have 5-6 people in here, or more space for dirt bike gear, or whatever else is awesome.

                          DAM drops means knock and is usually related to a crappy tank of gas. Did you fill up with cheap gas in the past week?

                                I had Shell 91 in it two tanks ago and started seeing some symptoms. Then I filled with Husky 92 as I've ran it before with no knock.

                                This time DAM plummeted and it's all been ****y. I got half way through and filled with Shell 91 again. No change. I'll be driving along at like .9 DAM and then it will drop to .188. Feedback knock will come out of nowhere and be at -4.22 and FKL is anywhere from -2.62 to -9.87. So I swapped from Stage 1 to Stage 0. No change. With multiple ECU resets I am lost. I can only figure that it's been progressively getting worse, it may be the plugs that have 93,xxx on them.

                                Eric thinks that they might be bad, and that I have LSPI (Low Speed Pre Ignition). He says try OEM oil and new plugs. Paired with a better tune, it may solve my issues

                                      Ok, so some of you may lol, but I bought myself another Forester. Was looking into Rangers, but then with their prices I could get another Subaru.

                                      Needed something for my new business to haul a bunch of stuff around. Once I get some roof racks I can put bigger pieces there.
