    codes for days brah!

    swapped my old EJ25D back into my black 98' outback "outblack" meow I have ALL the codes

    P0463 (circuit)
    P0463
    P0183 (circuit)
    P0183
    P0446
    P0141

    It is almost impossible to get it started it will tick over at 100-200 rpm for a few seconds and then fire up to normal idle (800) not warm-up idle (1500) and if I give it any throttle it boggs down until its "warm" then it will shudder and stutter like the knock sensor is bad (but it isn't) till 1500-3500rpm depending on how she feels (typical subaru humanity showing through) then if fires off like a 1980's turbo SAAB. changed the fuel pump/sending unit so that's not it, pulled off the plastic cover from the filler neck and that was all good still, it doesn't have a charcoal canister box thingy behind the pass side rear but i bought it that way and it worked just fine. doing some research those codes come up often in engine swap situations, anyone have this issue? cheers!

    Has the car been sitting for any amount of time? Could be that the wires might have got chewed up by a mouse or rat. o2 should just be a new sensor, but the others not so sure one as I have never dealt with those before.

    car has been sitting unused for a year now, I have checked / swapped spark plugs, plug wires, coil packs ( i have 5 good ones i swapped every one nothing changed) I even swapped out MAF as I also have many of they laying around. my thoughts are the lack of a 2nd O2 sensor, tho my old one ran just fine without one, or the sketchy wiring splices on the coil pack harness as it was swapped to a neon coil necessitating plug change. but again my old one had that and ran just fine.
