  1. Hi all, looking to get to the bottom of this... Have a BH5 legacy, had some major play in the vf26 that was in it so got a cheap vf27 and swapped the CHRA from it over (http://www.subyclub.com/topic/5276-diy-convert-your-tt-primary-turbo-to-ball-bearing/), however every time i've test driven it, there seems to be smoke coming from the turbo. I've done some reading and founds that the BB cores require much less oil/pressure than the journal bearing, which is what the original turbo was so could possibly be too much pressure? I've checked the oil feed banjo bolt size and
  2. Ok update time... on the leaking cylinder (#2 i think/FL) there is a rough spot on the cylinder wall, the patch is on the bottom towards the head side of the bore. looks like something sitting there has corroded it slightly? anyone familiar with this? And I may have figured why it overheated in the first place - due to the tear in the intake pipe downstream from AFM where it was attached to the undersized turbo inlet causing it to run lean. would explain why it initially overheated on a longer drive. So knowing this... do I need cylinder bore hon
  3. Yes going to have to do a bit more research when i go down that path.... Also realised that the pistons on the LHS are both marked 0.5, whereas the RHS have no marks. Assuming this means only one side has been bored out? Im sure ive read somewhere that you cant do just 1 side. Anyone confirm?
  4. Thanks for all the replies guys most helpful. On further inspection bottom end seems to be flat. Turns out one of the points i was checking from was slightly raised so gave it a little sanding (shouldnt effect gasket seal area so i think im fine to sand it) A_J_T i was seriously considering the single turbo route but seems like a lot of effort and cost so for now ill keep it twins.... however im fairly sure the rev ds are supposed to be running vf 33/32 combo but checking both mine i got 26/27... now i know the inlet size for the 33 and 26 are different so went to check
  5. Heads have been resurfaced apparently one of them was warped pretty badly, should i be concerned about this or should it be good now? After double checking the bottom end there is slight warpage only on the plane at the fronside of the motor by about .06mm fsm says tolerance is .04mm would i be pushing it by assembling as is? Looks like this is 2nd time head gasket had been done so im assuming the last one lasted at least 3 years while the previous owner had it
  6. Hi all, first time pulling an engine but seems to have gone smoothly so far. Car is a 2002 BH5D legacy with a blown head gasket, it was too cheap I couldn't let it pass and thought this would be a good way to get some experience in working on these cars. Gasket leak was cylinder->coolant, bubbles/exhaust smell through coolant. Didn't notice white smoke through exhaust though. Looking at the gasket it seemed to be a very minor leak but enough to put air into the coolant system to cause overheating. Just want to know a few things before i continue further...
  7. just had that problem with intake pipe trying to take manifold off so would assume it'd be the opposite way... removed primary DP removed primary turbo then primary intake could come off... a lot of effort to just remove intake manifold you might need to remove hoses if it won't move enough though, i could barely manage 5mm of movement with just the bottom hose coming off the turbo
  8. So ive reset the ecv and have boost back on primary, only getting up to about 7 psi or so but may make adjustments to it later on after a few test drives
  9. Well laptop still isn't going so got a boost gauge hooked up and its not making any boost at all on primary - wont go above 0, secondry turbo still seems to boost didn't try WOT but boost didn't really kick in untill 5500-6000 rpm. I've noticed a slight rattle coming form the secondry turbo area (i think) could this be the actuator? and would that provide the symptoms I'm seeing?
  10. Thanks for the quick reply, I'm fairly certain its Rev C, chassis code is bh5C5CD. Havn't had a look at the solenoid inside the passenger side arch but it was ticking in test mode yesterday. And the pill should be in the small hose between the T from the actuator and the primary turbo? looks to be there i can see the ledge of both nipples and then a bulge from the center of it which should be the pill. I'll have a look at the logs once my laptop finishes updating and see what i can get out of there. Just checked the codes labeled on the ecu "Y9"
  11. Hi all been lurking for a bit trying to find answers, hoping you fellas could help out a wee bit... anyway... 2001 Ej208 tt rev c bh5 legacy wagon... gtb e tune Got my first CEL a couple months back in the middle of nowhere after planting WOT uphill in 2nd, got a brief fuel cut and CEL came on... tyrned car off and back on but had no boost, had a very boring 200km drive back to chch in limp mode. Checked stored codes and had a 22-knock sensor- and 66-turbo system-. I expect the 66 was from the fuel cut and 22 could have been resulting? Otherwise may have bee
