Default EJ207 Install

I'm getting my EJ207 ordered in the next 24 hours, so I'll be installing it quite soon as well. The only engine swaps I've done in the past were on NA cars.

I'm wondering if there is any need to prime the oil or coolant system after/during/before installation of this engine...?

Any other unique things that would have to be done with this engine?

All help/input is greatly appreciated..

Do you have any idea how many EJ207 swap threads there are?

Some are basic and some are very in-depth, almost step-by-step on what they did.

Do a search on EJ20-7 swaps and read those and that will probably answer 99% of your questions

step 1 - remove old engine
step 2 - install new engine
step 3 - add AVCS wiring
step 4 - add fluids and start car.

I've been doing nothing but looking at EJ207 information for the last 3 weeks. But I thank you for your thoughtful and informative post and appreciate the time spent fueling your superiority complex sir.
Some people on here act as if responding and spending time on this forum is laborious and tedious. Is this a forum for like minded people or simply an archive ran by a group of haggard bitter old librarians?

Clearly you have an attitude problem.

If you read all the 207 installs, then why do you seem to not understand what needs to be done?

I have read as many as I can find and I had a specific question that I'm not sure is so obvious that it wasn't covered. I'm the type of person that likes to know as much as possible before starting anything.

Once again, I appreciate your helpful post mocking someone asking for help from more experienced people.

I have the answer to your problem, but because you're being a jackass and refuse to use common sense, I won't give it to you.

muhahaha

I'm failing to see how I'm being a jackass. This is an amazing forum with TONS of stored information, it just seems as if the moment anytime someone posts a question, they are immediately jumped on by people spending more time and energy telling them to use the 'Search.'

I'm being mocked for ineptitude while asking for help and I'm the jackass.

I'm not saying you were flaming or anything constituting as cursing, but how were your posts helpful in any way whatsoever, especially with off comments such as, "Do you have any idea how many EJ207 swap threads there are, then why do you seem to not understand what needs to be done."

I really don't understand the point of it. When you say 'Hardly,' yes that's accurate, but is it necessary at all?

You clearly haven't searched enough if you made it this far without also seeing "fill out your profile"; we have no idea what car you even have.

Are you swapping this EJ207 into a Subaru or a Chevy?

Use common sense Mrsaturn. Obviously its going on a Subaru,most likely one with a 2.0 factory turbo since that's the thread we're in. XSPWR, don't mind the dicks on this forum, eventually someone helpful will come along and actually give a worthwhile answer.

I also do have my car make/model filled out in my profile, for some reason it only showed up in my posts for about an hour and then hasn't since. It DOES say in my profile though :/

I hadn't seen any information regarding priming the turbo in any of the swap threads I have read, I figured I'd ask just in case it was considered common knowledge that wasn't covered. Thanks to the couple helpful guys, your input is always appreciated.

This has been cover many times, but I'm going to help you. Yes, you need to prime the turbo a few times before actually starting the motor. You can accomplish this by unplugging/disabling the power on the fuel pump, before cranking the engine over in order to prime the turbo.

You can also pull the 20amp ignition fuse under the dash and crank the car over a few times to prime the turbo

Got it - '04 WRX. In that case, anjuna basically had you covered in post #3.

I've never primed a turbo in my life, but the previous posters told you how to do it. It certainly can't hurt, but you aren't going to weld the shaft to the journal bearings in the ~1 second it takes to build oil pressure during cranking. The oil line is something like -3 or -4AN and has a VERY low volume of oil to move between the engine and the CHRA.

There is no need to continue this thread. Everything you're asking (actually not asking at all) has been covered on how to install a new motor, and to swap to a 207. The best thing to do is research it as need be when any issues may come up.

Also, you don't even have the motor yet and have made multiple threads.
