4EAT Power Mode
 
Has anyone tried this: http://www.subaru-svx.net/forum/showthread.php?t=39133
I think it should work. I just have to figure out which pin it is and pull a pin from a TCM harness at a junkyard. How can I remove a pin from the TCM? I tried it once before, but I couldn't get it to release.

I swapped the manual mode wire in my buddies (and soon to be mine!) 93 Legacy SS today. DEFINITELY a big difference. Throttle response was better, shifts up and down were quicker and firmer, a muddy hill test confirmed constant 50/50 power split, held rpm's higher in the corners, and it seemed to rev quicker as well. I can't wait to do this to my car and wire in a spare switch I have!

Where can i get the correct pin to do this if i do not have extra hanging around?

Go to a junk yard, pull one out and cut it a decent length down the wire

Awesome!
How do I remove a pin from a harness (at a junkyard) to add to my harness?

rip it out! No actually i think there is a harness pin remover tool you need...

When you unplug the harness from the TCU, you need a fine prick tool to pull down on the small plastic pieces that holds it in. When you pull it down, you can pull the pin out.
