Current Donation Goals
By Dan Fish
hi guys ive just bought my first subaru had been a v8 fan for years but decided to try something new , i have a 2005 legacy blitzen single turbo manual its nice car runs well been looked after, i have not been able to find any info on this model i found lots on twin turbo , did this come out with a single turbo or is it aftermarket any info be cool cheers
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?
