  1. What is this project? Its an engine build with a discussion and details about options and trade offs building an engine. Hopefully heaps of photos and video. Why? Because I couldn’t find the details I wanted online in one place and heaps of builds leave out the discussion on why they picked the parts and what flow on effects it makes. Plus after @Joker posted about Facebook YouTube take over I saw a motor and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Whats with the name? It came for a PM from @PBMS as the base engine for this is a EJ207 W block with a suspected cracked piston that on one has looked at yet. Until it’s opened there’s no idea on what’s inside. When does it start? It started on just now March 2019. Where is it? it will be in this topic mostly and across Possum Borne MS YouTube etc. How long? over the next few months since the engine is a donor the cars stays on the road. Whats the plan? So far it is mostly pending the inspection of the block. Initial thoughts are: - build it for around 600hp and then street it about 450whp. - Stay 2.0 as the cost of stroking it are a lot higher. As long as the crank is still good. - CNC the heads - Cams around 264 but has dual AVCS so maybe bigger - close deck maybe depends on block condition Since this is my first Subaru build this topic will be pretty open to ideas and the plan will form.
  2. Hi all I am a noob and do want to replace my (broken) factory bov with one such as a hks ssqv or V6 sti I believe it's an HKS unit. However the problem is that my turbo inlet which is on the early wrxs uses a hose rather than a flange to the turbo-intercooler pipe. I don't run the factory pipe rather I use radiator/silicon Hose as mine broke. To fix this, would I either have to get some silicon Hose, drill a hole to fit flange? Or is it best to buy a factory hose?
  3. new here, but wandering if anyone knows a decent place to either get a angine refurbished or where to get a standard refurb kit for a ej203 for a 2003 bp5 liberty wagon. it currently has 380xxx kms on the clock and is showing its ware and tear. just wanna refurb for now and turbo convert later next year if i can swing it. my baby girl is gonna get some love and care as the last owner didnt maintain her at all
  4. Sorry if this has already been a thread before, but i recently got picked up an 07' Impreza S-GT, 2.0 Turbo 5 Speed. Excellent car and I'm having a blast driving it. Anyway, the car has just under 170000 k's and I believe it's time for me to do a service - oil, filter, etc. What are some other things you guys generally do when servicing your turbo Subaru's? I was having a gander at servicing videos and the general service seemed to include cleaning the AFM, resetting the ECU, and top engine cleaning? I feel like some of it is a bit unnecessary but and pointers are greatly appreciated. I feel and oil and filter change would be sufficient enough?
  5. Hey guys, I have a 1999 Legacy Rev B that has the auto EJ206 in it which I will be removing and manually converting (car is being painted by a friend to showcase to employers). I also plan to have something done with the engine at the same, but I'm not too sure on the route to take. I would like the end result to be single turbo with pretty much standard performance as it will be my daily driver, but I can't decide on either rebuilding the current engine or swapping in an engine from a Forester. If I were to get a Forester engine I would give it a refresh but not to headgaskets. I am leaning more towards keeping the current engine but it's done 230k and I'm not sure about the open deck design. Will it be easier to single turbo convert with a Forester engine or will it be easier to keep the current engine? Cheers guys!
  6. 08’ Impreza 2.0R manual, 214xxx k’s. I have had the car for about a week and I’ve noticed when driving it that the car has a slow/flat/sluggish spot around 2000 until 2500 rpm where it struggles to accelerate. The revs kind of fluctuate up and down around and it slowly climbs until it hits around 3k rpm and it accelerates fine. Some days are worse than others, sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not. My first guesses are are spark plugs and leads or something wrong where it’s starving it from fuel? Maybe a fuel pump or the likes of. Any ideas?? Thanks guys.
  7. Alright guys, I've had a look in the search bar to see if this has already been asked, couldn't find anything... so here goes. I am looking to import a 2007 - 2009 BP Legacy wagon and i'm struggling to decide between the two main engine options, the 3.0R and the 2.0T. I will be getting a Spec B with the 6 speed manual regardless of what engine i decide on, so i was wanting some feedback from y'all on your experiences. My main questions are the following: - which would be faster? - which is easier overall to live with? reliability etc. - does the EZ30 have much of an aftermarket? or is it primarily a exhaust swap and a tune to boost power and thats it? - fuel economy, what sort of figures do you see in your 2.0T/EZ30? this wont really matter TBH but would be interesting to see. - insurance... that old chestnut. im guessing the EZ30 will be cheaper to insure? Any information is totally welcomed. Thanks team!
  8. Hey guys, some pretty daft questions which I've been searching for answers for but haven't turned up anything definitive. I'm looking at getting my lady friend a new car, and I'm keen on her getting something I can modify when she upgrades in a year or two, and I enjoy the conversion/modification instead of selling and buying. I was looking at a 2000 1.5 Impreza sedan, but I have a few questions... Are the 1.5s AWD the same as the 2.0s? If I were to swap in the drivetrain from an STI, would I need to be concerned with anything other than the normal conversion stuff or is it a bolt in affair, aside from wiring? Also are the rear brakes drum brakes or calipers? Many more questions but that would do for a start haha Cheers guys
