The H6 revs pretty quick so IMO, running a 4.11 or 4.44 would force you to make a 2-3 shift on faster courses or be into the rev limiter for a little too long. The 3.90 should be fine. Also, it seems the 3.90 helps keep low rpm wheel spin to a minimum although I still got some and again, I wasn't really on it. The front 1.5 diff will be key too.

Oh...for those wondering, I have virtually no more AWD push! Instead, the car seemed to pivot...a nice feeling but, I'm sure my set-up will kill tires, I'll have to do MUCH more testing.

It's looking like sept 9th will be the next test day for us.

I am so tempted to do this now for my track car.

I have someone that can do wiring for me and I can fab a new radiator myself.

LOL...

Yeah I used to fab up ones for RX7's when I built them. It would probably look like a front mount since that would get the most air flow.

Great thread Andy, it's about time you posted this up.

You are one of the pioneers with your set up..

Did you mention 3:90 w/ the RA gearset?? I know a guy that just put something like that in his GC and it works quite well.. That would probably work the best for your beast.

Still want that ride when our paths cross at an event..

Mick - you're not totally off base, but remember there are two parts: Torque x Gear Ratio. To turn 2500 at 70 miles per hour would be pulling a substantially taller gear than the 2.5RS 5th. I don't question the engine's torque (mine makes peak RS torque at less than 2k... even at the very beginning)

Barrett - you need to be in here too... you figured out most of the how to of fitment of my car. I'm just working out the bugs. And yes... 3.90 w/ the RA gearset is, I think, the right answer.

You could run a smaller A/C condenser from a Honda, you'd just need custom lines made..no big deal and not that expensive. Hood clearance may be an issue.

On that note, my SVX ps pump pulley barely hits the hood. I'm running a cf hood, so its clearancing its self.

For auto-x, get a front LSD before you even start! On my brief initial pass, I lit the inside front tire on the first turn.....nice and smokey!
So, where did you get a front LSD??

Default EG33 swap in Impreza (pwr steering)

cueauto and wagonL,

My 95 Pwr Steering lines don't reach to the mount points, nor does it look like the hood would close with the 95 pump in it. I'm assuming you both have eg33 units. My question is from which point did you connect the lines (down by the rack or up by the pump?) Custom or legos like usual?

Turned it over for the first time today!!!! (no ign or fuel yet, but progress)

Also just to confirm, what is the firing order as viewed from the radiator?

Thanks

I know this is an Impreza only thread but...
I found it easier to connect the PS lines at the pump not at the rack. The pump barely fits... but it fits.

I found that I was grounding a wire that shouldn't have been grounded. It was a black ignition wire that looked like a ground...It wasn't it was a power wire. Put a hot when on wire to it and the car fired up. I also ran a direct power line from the battery to the pump with a toggle switch...seems to work for me I was having problems getting the Fuel pump relay to work.

The firing order if your looking at the engine from the radiator its front left (1) then to the back right (6) then to middle left (3) to front right (2) then back left (5) to middle right (4).
Hope that helps good luck!

I used the PS pump and resivor from the SVX and my Impreza PS lines juuuust reached.

On another note, I am cutting some 1/8" steel to weld my motor and trans mounts solid. I do have a touch of contact between my hood and PS pulley....not a big deal though. I think it only touches when the engine torques over...

What is every one using to latch down there hoods?

I was unable to reuse the stock hood latching system (no room with the pusher radiator fans). I found that hood pins have allowed me to keep the hood closed and latched.

In reality, you could use the stock latch....bit of work but it could be done. I have a carbon hood and they should be pinned regardless of whether or not there is a factory latch. But I'm sure the EZ30 would cause waaayyy less headaches as far as those type of fitment issues are concerned...

So, which "Moose" might have a front LSD for sale, I see there are several members that have "Moose" in their site names?
thanks!

i used fuji_k's cell phone video recorder to tape my exhaust..and how it sounds with the eg33...

the lighten crank pulley and the 10.4lbs X-ACT flywheel makes it rev pretty fast! and it sounds very ferrariish...sounds very exotic! and i love the sound of it...

Hey guys,
Im in the process of getting rid of my twin turbo Legacy GTB motor and putting an EZ30R in its place. Im pretty sure i have everything sorted (even the ECU side). One of the last things i need to sort out is the throttle body.

For those that have swapped the throttle bodies from the standard electrical one to a mechanical one, what throttle body did you use, and how much effort did it take to hook up to the intake manifold? Im trying to find the lazyest option (i prefer to call it effiecent though )

Thanks

I used the 04 H6 throttle body. ECS made an adapter for it to fit onto the 05+ manifold.
