All right. I figured it was time to start a project thread since I just got the temp tags on the car and will be swapping engines next weekend. I just need to go run it through smog with the stock Ej18 so that I have 2 years of unrestricted modding...

Step 1: Install Ej25 next Sunday.

Feel free to ask any questions. I will start posting some pictures later today or manana. I have pics of the kit on the previous '99 RS that it ran on, as well as laid out in my garage. I will include details of what's in the kit with the pictures...

What will you be using as engine management? How are you going to handle fuel duties? Stock injectors? Sorry for all the questions.

I reiterate, feel free to ask questions... Initially, I will run it like Rimmer set it up with a stock SOHC Ej25 block, injectors and a RRFPR. The one catch will be that it will be one a 1.8l ECU. I've got a Perfect Power and I have both an ITC and AFC-II, which are known to work well on the 1.8l...

I bought a '91 SS for a donor vehicle yesterday. I am pulling the EJ22T out of it, rebuilding it overbored, and with 9:1 CR pistons for use with the SOHC Ej25 heads. At that point, I will install a v6 STi manifold with yellow top injectors and change the pullies to turn up the boost. By then I am sure I will be using the PP since I will need to mess with fuel trim. Right now, it's set for 9psi, but eventually, I would like to run 14-15psi with it. But that's 4-5 months off. I want to start playing with it now and thus the immediate Ej25 installation...

I have never seen a supercharger like that. Looks like it's gonna fit well in the engine bay. with the ej22t that car is gonna be a beast.

what was it mounted to in Hamfists car, 2.2 or 2.5?

if you were doing an NA motor build with that SC would you go with, 2.5l or 2.2l na block matt?

im going for a different build on my back up car(98 OBS). 2.5 swap, H6(too much $$), or re-turbo the stock 2.2l. but im actually looking at this as an alternate option now. i have access to a SC from a t-bird super coupe, a newer ford f150 SC or a new scion TC SC. but im torn with options, and feasibility of these different models working with a similar setup. with as little piping as possible in the bay. any ideas?

good luck with your install matt. i'll be watching the progress, and hoping for the best! --keith

I'm jealous. I'll be watching this with great interest...

Is the heat exchanger custom or is it a radiator from something?

Been busy between job and working in my own mad scientist lab. Let's just say I took the new engine to redline for the first time 2 nights ago and let it see 14psi. I was dead even with my friends modded CBR600F4i until 140 and we both had to back off because we were coming into traffic. I still have another 10PSI and about a month of tuning on the standalone

I'll save the details for another thread.

I was about to slap the Ej25 heads onto an open deck Ej22E when a complete '91 SS 5spd dropped in my lap. Otherwise, I would have used the NA block. The key in my mind is finding that balance between boost friendly and NA-ish. With the Ej22E you are at 8.6:1 That's good, but a little lower than perfect in my mind. So, since I have a blank slate to work with, I am going for 9:1

Klug,
The heat exchanger appears to be custom. There's no manufacturers marks on it, and some of the welds are silly thick. But one of the bigger oil coolers you can buy from Jeg's would work just as well.

Matt-coast punk,
Hi stranger. Post details soon...

Wow, good luck. I remember hearing about these kits back when I had a 2.5RS. I would love to see how this one works.

We got a ride in the RS equipped with the kit before it was removed from the car. It pulled nicely with three of us in the car. I imagine this thing will be a little screamer, given the weight differential. Time to upgrade those brakes, Matty.

Well,
with rumours of an E85 station in Boulder, I may be following suit sooner than you think...

440 injectors work beautifully . Boosted? Maybe 565's will work for you. I don't know.
