Got a random P1314 and noted worse than usual fuel economy so did some surfing the forum and decided to start off with the easy stuff... cleaned the MAF and replaced the spark plugs... The 8mm STI wires look pretty good, no failed boots... the Bosch Platinum plugs had the center electrode worn flat to the ceramic, they were mostly just old looking not fouled or gunky. In with a new set of NGK BPR5ES...

Seems to run smoother, we'll see if that code comes back. It popped up maybe 6 months ago and I cleared it then and did nothing, this is the first it's been back. Hope to have solved it but I see where there could be other causes like a Fuel injector O ring leaking or an intermittent failing O2 sensor.

Will probably have to add those to the list...

Spark plugs way easier without any SAI BS on the heads.

not a huge fan of the bosch plugs in these. NGK or Champion simple motor simple plugs.

Without SAI is sooo much better. With is hateful

I installed a stock radio from a d2 into the p38 and only had to but an antenna adapter. Even the steering wheel controls still work!
the radio overhangs down a bit but doesnít really affect anything, plus it was free.

I started having problems with the ignition barrel, it kept thinking the key was in when it wasnít.
I sprayed electrical contact cleaner inside and than immediately blasted it with compressed air.
Nice cheap fix
My dads been driving it mostly and heís averaging 17.7 mpg. Thatís way better than my disco. Lol
