Current Donation Goals
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
