  1. Oh bugger, then what to do with the back ports? Just T them up like @Kiwi_Fozze said for the balance? So plan is T both the front head ports to one port on catch can and then separate the crank case and run to the other port on catch can. Leaves me 2 back ports. Hmmm
  2. Cheers @Gripless will have a read. @Andy_Mac No idea why it's done that way. It's done by @Subirex Automotive Will get them to correct it. And yes the catch can vents to atmosphere. So leave the front ports blocked? And T both back head ports and run to 1 port and then the crank case to another port. I do smell a lot of fumes in the cabin so I always have to keep the ac mode into internal.
  3. Hi team, I just thought I would review my catch can setup, especially after meeting @Kiwi_Fozze on the club sub meet night. Car in question is my 2004 subaru legacy bp5. The intake pipe to the turbo is straight pipe and with nothing entering the intake, no maf either. I have attached my awesome paint diagram. The diagram is as if you are standing in front of the car and facing the engine. The front ports on either side of the heads (marked with black box) are blocked. The pcv not shown is also blocked. The driver's back head port is T with crank case port and goes to the catch can The passenger back head port goes to the other port on the catch can. After looking online, this setup looks wrong. Please advise.
  4. You listed out all the info, what other info do you want?
  5. The compressor wheel is the same, but the turbine wheel is titanium and is glued on to the shaft. The shaft is also different in the EFR series, as they would have to balance the compressor to turbine wheels.
  6. Yeap this was my go to turbo as well but had decided with the hrc35/2 but now got a 7670 ewg. But the 257sxe has a whole range of housings, where as the 7670 is limited.
  7. Here is all the efr7163 dimensions including the g series https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjln53D6N3jAhVJfysKHYgCDpoQjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.freedengineering.com%2Fshop%2Fefr-7163%2F&psig=AOvVaw0ckWKL9_T-19SPEofWXg3s&ust=1564616422351362
  8. Nah man there isn't aye. Challenging to fit turbo and the down pipe.
  9. The only problem with internal gate on the efr is it makes the whole turbo bloody long. As it is on the legacy there isn't much room compared to the stis etc.
  10. Yea my issues were avcs being intermittent and not respecting the target table. Which came down to the cam pulleys, apparently it is common practice to replace the cam pulleys when rebuilding a engine. I didn't change mine when my first engine ran BEB and I didn't have the screen filters, so def some metal would've gone through it. You can rebuild them however, but its a process. Here is a link on how to: https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2713834 Also the avcs doesn't work when the engine is cold. The coolant temp/oil temp will need to be > 70-80 degrees. So I would suggest warming up the vehicle and then taking it for a drive and log and see if the avcs behaves.
  11. I have got a brand new maf sensor. PM me
  12. This will stop the belt from slapping soo much and wont let it slip tooths yea.
  13. Could be interested, depending on price.. I have a bp5 prefacelift 5mt.
  14. Niceeeeeeeeeeeee, I take it, this was done in 3rd gear as the ratio is so high and the km/h is 140ish
