not that I know of. If there is one out there, I'm sure it's probably a 1 off.

It shouldn't be too hard or complex to make an effective pan.

RallyBob is the only one I know of who has fabricated a baffled pan for the EG33. Dry sump has not graced the EG33 to date.

you can see it at roughly the 11 o-clock position from the crank. Little black round thing. It sends pressure seen just before the oil splits and goes to the mains galleries. Same place as an EJ engine.

Ah ha, so its hidden under the Alt and power steer pump , no wonder i didnt se it, would it be safe to tee of there for my turbo feed?, or do the turbo engines have another oil feed somewhere.

well, you can see that little hex head fitting that it sits in? well there is another blank plug along the same gallery but towards the back of the block (you can barely see part of it in this pic, stupid fuel lines). I'd buy the same hex plug/adapter from the dealer, put in in the rear plugs location and feed turbo oil from there.

Either that or you can feed it off the back of the heads where there is a smaller port that feeds the heads. I'd personally run off the gallery

you can get a nice thermostated oil plate ("sandwich") that goes where the factory oil filter is.

there are a few companies that make them with varying designs. Check the build motor section for oil coolers and you'll see a few threads where the discussions have come up before.

Don't worry about searching for EG33 specifically as they really are just an EJ2x with two more cylinders for 95% of their design. In other words the EJ's oil cooler setups will work for you. You may want to get a bigger cooler however since you'll have much more oil ALTHOUGH you're flow rate is only that of a 12mm oil pump, as that's the size of your oil pump.

it looks at home in there. I'm still going to be interested to see your shifter solution.

setting up the shifter is very easy, just use an old steering uni, this is how i did the last one, works a treat.



from another angle

under stand what you mean,
any way a question re the coolant shortfalls, would another outlet on the left hand head direct out the front then join the right hand one before heading to rad be a possible solution, ie that way the restricted x over wouldnt be an issue. [ i would leave the x over manifold there just weld an elbow onto it to take a 2" hose]
your thoughts oh great knowledgeable one

that's not me but I'll give you my $0.02.

I've been looking into improving the cooling and specifically reverse cooling EJ (and EG) motors and it's a pain in the butt because of how the flow of these blocks is laid out. It flows top to bottom but stops to cool the heads along the way. So they engine does get parallel cooling, cooling to both sides, but not in a favorable or easy to modify way.

I honestly don't have any good solution for improving cylinder head cooling.

What did you have in mind when you say other head? the coolant enters the top of the block halves...now I'm looking for a diagram I had of this.

Flow goes from block -> heads -> block...negating any ancillary lines.

hi mate , my idea was to fit anther 2"outlet on the left hand side of the x over manifold where it goes into the block [of course] therby bypassing the restriction in the x over manifold, then joining the two at the front of the engine then onto the top of the rad.

i intend to run an electric water pump without a thermostat and control temp through the pump via ECU, [ have done this on my last race car and it works extremely well ] and no heat soak after a race, as i run the pump through a turbo timer.

ok, gotcha. Well that setup sounds pretty slick (the thermostatless water pump setup especially). Please share pics of the setup once you have it together. Also who's pump are you looking to run on the car?

I don't know of anyone having logged coolant temps on the two block halves or heads, though I'm sure Subaru has at the factory. In other words, I don't know of it to be an issue nor have I seen anyone research it but your solution would fix it if it existed.
