Just as an update, I was looking in the workshop manual for something else and found a nice picture of the Gen IV Legacy 2.0 turbo inlet manifold and components. That engine does indeed have tumble generator flaps, with the petrol injectors mounted in the body of these, below the flaps. So any spuds fitted in the inlet manifold would be above the flaps.

That might tell a bit of a story Rich! Though on the other thread it's been suggested the flaps are only shifted to aid driveability with a cold engine... A point I'd look further into because flaps low down near the valves could aid with throttle response, particularly on a turbo engine, during other driving conditions too. Throttle valves are near valves on some BMW M engines specifically to make for better throttle response. And even if such flaps don't move the presence could potentially cause problem for gas/air mixture with spuds fitted above them.

Still haven't been given the license file implementation by BRC. I believe the car is now with BRCGB supplier (BRC Ben/Peter) rather than with one of their installers as although the installer managed to considerably improve matters they didn't manage to sort it completely. Could be that BRCGB intend on sorting it before allowing me the software even if that means putting a different (not Seq32) BRC system on it. I'm just standing by in case even then they can't sort it, but I'm pretty sure they will, especially with all the insights given on this thread, Subaru forum thread and in my chats with the owner. 2 Months after original install when I would have converted it job done first attempt, or could have had this install sorted quickly if allowed the software ;-) Would rate my own chances of sorting it above any supplier or manufacturer too. :lol:

Looks like the flaps might only be on post 2006 2.0 turbo models (despite them being shown in my 2004 manual) anyway...

Yes, it seems that they are making some progress with the car now.

Got a Subaru Forester 2.5 turbo to convert week after next, which will run perfectly on LPG by the time the owner picks it up, which will be 3 days after he dropped it off ;-)

I probably ought to bring my Outback back to you for a check over and service at some point! Maybe when the weather's nicer. Quite busy now I've started a new job in Leeds.

Other than your recent post the thread seems to have dried up on the UKLegacy forums.

There has been a more recent flurry of activity on the thread on UKLegacy forum, it looks like things are going from bad to worse.

This will be the first day of business that TinleyTech have been official distributors of BRC equipment (taking over from BRCGB), but I emailed them about the software an hour ago and they have already sent me a license file that works. So now I have the software! That's another 100 Brownie points to Tinleytech in my book. :-) Will have to withdraw negative stuff about BRCGB, besides any none work issues I was told key members of staff had to deal with it's now also obvious they will have had a lot of work stuff to deal with too.. and they were good with me in the past.

Cheers again Tinleytech.

Sorry to hear of BRCGB going and I wish everyone there all the best, they were good with me but their policies didn't seem to make much sense in recent times. Now that I've said that and got it out of the way, I couldn't agree with you more mate.

But in a weird way I will almost miss the cloak and dagger, closed shop supply, 3 tier dealer network, don't tell anyone we're giving you special treatment type stuff. It will seem strange for a while buying BRC stuff from the official UK supplier without any of that kind of thing.

Prins next please Tinleytech :wink: Then the BS will just about be cleared completely.
