Whats the really odd sound in the motor, they dont sound like that from the factory, sounds like a 1960s gear drive on a cam. What is that sound??

The power steer pump wasn't fully bled properly..
After a while of running, it came good and quiet.

No forced induction just yet... but I could consider a supercharger

I agree Tradewind..
the Aussie term for the "overwhelming" responses is "Crickets"

I havent done any work on it for the past 2 weeks, but soon it will be driving, and plenty more pics and videos will follow suit..

Cheers

I think most people on this site are into seeing cool action pics and numbers rather then accomplishment. I think it's cool but what is one really suppose to say?
I still can't believe how expensive the EZ36's are stateside, from a wrecked car

So I will assume there aren't kits available for the 3.0 nor 3.6 just yet? (swap kit that is).

I don't know of any "swap kits" for the vastly more popular turbo EJ20/EJ25 swaps, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for an EZ3x swap kit if I were you.

I can pretty much assure you that you'll never see a swap kit. Mechanically, the swap it easy but the wiring is the headache.

I saw a vender on here selling swap kits from sti's (ecu, all harnesses, longblock + turbo).

I hate dealing with wiring, thanks for the heads up on my question both of you.

Who has the engine general description PDF for the EZ36? That will help determine how difficult building this motor will be if it is ever accomplished. I am stupid enough to possibly try but I'd like to see those measurements first.

Cool Blown - up 3.6

Firstly its not absolutely confirmed it is a 3.6, I have followed reports of it for a while but can confirm either way if 3.0 or 3.6

There is little or no other information that can be found out about it either ....... yet. If it really is a 3.6 then it will be the very first time that one has been SC'd. Those fancy off center conrods will be working hard

Sounds like 3.6 ..

The Rods aren't the problem from what I've read as to 3.6 failure ..
it's the Bearings .. not widespread as car-parts.com 3.6 motors
show over 100k miles & still running.

Think the bad hype of 3.6's is over the lack of support for it's dual vvt control.

The Oiling is better & the Cooling is better .. in the 3.6.. and those Rods are Forged..

You should read my post after I spoke with Outfront motorsports, the issue seems to be the crank not handling the power well on the 3.6. It's in the impreza H6 resource thread.

And yes the offset rods thing is not really the issue, I think most people don't actually understand what is going on with the rod design, I know I didn't quite understand until I found a photo of the rod individually.

Either way it will be interesting to see how that holds up to power. It may take 400hp just fine, which if that is all you want then I'd say go for it.

You know all factory rods are forged right? Just becuase a toothpick is forged won't make it stand up to anything....

10.5 comp. - dual VVT - better cylinder cooling allows roughly a .6 bar Boost using a belt driven Supercharger .. without the engine taking a dump .. as the Finland builder illustrated... anything more needs Forged slugs.

Rod Bearings .. perhaps better sizing et al remains my question.

Did read where Outfront snapped 3 cranks just shy of 10 lbs Boost .. but not why ..
Rod Bearing Wear?

Forged Crank Grain problems?

Bad batch of metal?

The rods didn't let go .. the Crank did

& after installing a custom cut billet crank .. under bucks up Boost .. no more Tears .. still using Factory Rods.

For the average mild swapper with some skills .. an eBay Supercharger making 6 to 8 lbs. boost on High Test Pump Gas .. stock motor .. 410 HP .. school boy crush -

Any updates on the EZ36 swapability? Are any ECUs able to activate the AVCS yet? Has anyone successfuly swapped an EZ36 with full functionality yet? I would love to put one in my 97 Legacy, but I am torn as to whether this dream swap of mine is practical... What happened to the GrimmSpeed forester?

Hello, first time here. I don't know Subaru's thus far, but I am a diesel mechanic. I want to install a really bad engine into my Super Beetle, no it is not a direct replacement; much better though. Would you explain the varible timing and how it is a performance advatage.

Hot rodders have advanced and retarded cams for years to adjust the power band. They can only choose one position of the cam, though, so they're limited in what gains they can get. Typically they do it to optimize the top end performance for racing, so the low end (normal street driving, emissions, etc) suffers. With variable cam timing you can get the best of both worlds because you can optimize the engine's performance over a much broader RPM band.
