Try going to a local hardware store or even auto zone and get a brass 1/4" npt/hose barb fitting. They're like $2 and will give you piece of mind


Or try threading some 6mm/8mm bolts in
hmm yeah well i was hoping i would be able to just put the new pressure sender into the old sandwich.

do you know which brand sandwich adapter?
Defi and Greddy are definitely 1/8 npt .

I would not thread any metric bolts in the sandwich adapter, you can damage the finer pipe threads and cause leaks with any sender you put in afterwards.

Sorry, I meant hand thread them to see if they line up...being JDM who knows if it follows standard NPT

I really need help on this one guys. I've tried everything, from checking my grounds to swapping sensors from one side to the other. Basically in short, I've had P0365 (camshaft position sensor bank 1) CEL code ever since I've got my swap. I bought a new camshaft sensor and the light stayed on. So I went ahead with a friends advice and swapped everything from one side to the other in hopes that the code will jump to the other side, being bank 2, nonetheless still stuck on bank 1.... I had someone hook up a computer to my car to see if the avcs were working, turns out they are. The only weird thing he noticed in the logs was how the left and right AVCS were operating, one gave out 6% while the other 68%.


Any idea on what can be causing this?? I'm really tired of looking at this CEL on, and what makes it worse I can't get a tune cause of this, actually maybe I can but it won't be a smart decision.


Thanks everyone.

do you have a lightened pulley/flywheel? I have a crank sensor code right now and I've been reading....some say these 2 codes can be related to those mods.

Also did you check that your timing is correct?

my friend was getting that code simular on the ej255. when he put the cam sensor on it was slightly off and caused the sensor not to read the cam. maybe take the timing stuff off and verify its all correct. when you log avcs look at the angle opening not hte percentage. when its not working it stays at like 6% duty cycle i believe so that one is not working. the duty cycle referes to the oil that is fed into the cams and how often out of 100 times say the solenoid must be open to hit the target avcs value from the table.

I had a problem similar to this before I straightened out my AVCS wiring. Did you do the wiring on the car and how did you (or the person who did it) do it? What diagram did you follow and did you make your own harness or buy one? Also, where are you in NJ? If you are close I can look at it.

Go back and check the pins that you added along with the pins that you swapped in the harness.

Sometimes they do not seat 100%. And while your at double check your pin locations.

Also check to see if you still have the avcs filters or if you have a blocked filter.

I thought it was stock on the Jdm engine. I'll look to see if there is a name on it.


I'm still throwing the p0365 too. Where are these filters you're talking about? On the solenoid itself?

Anyone have any experience with this product. i searched and didnt see any posts.

from their website:
Camcon Ex

Retails for $650. found one on ebay for a little cheaper but it seems to be an older model

Camcon Fi Ebay


looks to be a $250 steal of a AVCS and A/F controller. seems legit. thinking about getting it. wanted a couple opinions.

edit:

another link on their website for setting information (at bottom of page)

Why even bother with that when you can tune your ecu with open source.

Really, where can I get a map for my 207? I have a catless 3" turbo back exhaust and a Perrin turbo inlet, stock otherwise, hook a brother up.
Thanks.

Hello ladies and gents. I am currently thinking about picking up an EJ207 motor since I found a pretty sweet deal along with the v7 trans. How do I tell if they are legit? After researching all I can find is that it's supposed to have a red intake manifold(he could've just sprayed it) and certain turbos(He could've swapped it in no?) I would really appreciate the help thank you all.

It seems like you really don't know much about these engines. Just research this thread some. There's 95 pages of great info and pics. Research some of the JDM vendors on this forum and you will find exactly what you need and it will answer just about 99.9% of your questions.

Start with this thread http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...96&postcount=3

Then come back and read all of this thread. There are subtle external differences between the year offerings that you can give you an educated guess if the one you are looking at is legit.

If you are seriously in the market for one you NEED to read up on this thread. It will be extremely helpful for you. With the upmost respect based on your post you don't have the knowledge yet to effectively make the right choice. If you can't pick a JDM motor out of a pile of STI motors you must do your research. And again in absolutely no way am I trying to be a dick at all. I just want you to be fully educated so you don't wind up getting screwed. Read every page of this thread you won't regret it. Good luck in your search.


I still wish there was an inner thread search option There is tons of stuff in here I want to refer back to all the time and can never remember what pages things are on.

No offense taken. I've been researching for the past few weeks. I know some of the differences(though compared to you it may be basic knowledge). So far I haven't found any way to tell them apart with the naked eye. The guy I am purchasing from has it installed already and with some bolt-ons.

Reason for wanting to upgrade is I have decided to go with a 20g-xt and would be much more comfortable that the ej207 is a stronger platform. Just a peace of mind that I won't run into any problems later on. Also since my stock motor/tranny only has 55k miles I can sell it off now for a decent price and recuperate the some of the costs.

This will be my first engine swap, but with the help of a buddy who has done many engine swaps(but for BMW). He will guide me through along with his other friend who is a Subie enthusiast. Thanks for the heads up though. All advice is appreciated(even if it isn't put in the kindest way )

Quick question for those who had their V7 tuned by Clark, the 16bit.xml logging file, is that supposed to be loaded as the logger definition in romraider, I've been trying but it hasn't worked for me.

Nevermind, Figured it out, the 16bit.xml file isn't a logger definition file, it it a logging profile. Just a bit of a communication error.

Well that's what I'm getting at is there are many many ways to tell with the naked eye. This is a whole different ball game than just a your standard engine swap. I am not insulting you in any way at all. Just don't want you to make any mistakes. All of your answers can be found here in this very thread. Being able to identify the motor is a great start. I am not going to rub it in your face or be a dick because unlike some others it is not my style. Because I remember where I come from and know that one day I was in your shoes. And day by day with research I am still learning more and more every single day.

Pooky, I know this isn't a 100% fool proof way but check out the intake manifold. Does it have Tgv's or do the runners go all the way to the heads? How about the avcs solenoids, are they there? If the sticker is still there you can check that, its on the timing belt cover, left hand side when looking at it installed.

A few simple things to look for. I am with everyone else though, do lots of research before hand especially since you are buying third or fourth hand. I bought mine from a reputable company but only after doing a metric **** load of research.

Good luck.
