    Hi folks,
    I have a UK spec 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.0 with the EJ204 naturally aspirated engine and fault codes for the EGR valves and secondary air pump (P1410 and P2444). The parts cost for the valves and pump is prohibitive and more than the car is worth however there is potentially a way of ‘overwriting or bypassing’ the codes in the ECU with a software flash. Unfortunately there is a known issue with one ECU made by Hitachi which my car has and this makes it near impossible to physically or electronically access the ECU. I have tried a number of Subaru specialists and ECU tuning companies but am drawing a blank. Does anyone have any contacts that could help please?

    • Kieron. Only just seen this. Try John or Gareth 01416329422. Shawlands. South Side Mini Centre. They are mini/MINI & Air VW specialists but do everything you can think of. Have a look at their Instagram page for the variety. Very competent & very nice guys.

      • Thanks Peter and sorry for the late acknowledgement! The problem has been resolved for now; amazingly with a cheap refurbished part from China via AliExpress, we’ll see how long it lasts!
