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.
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
I need some advice on whether it would be okay and whether my engine will work properly if I was to install a BOV. Would I need a BOV with an adjustable vent to atmosphere and recirculation? Would I need to have it on 50:50? What BOV would be recommended? Cheers.
Also I own a 2001 Twin turbo Subaru legacy automatic.
