Some pictures of my DP issue. The unwrapped one is the JDM HKS catted twinscroll pipe. The wrapped one is a USDM Perrin Divorced Wastegate catless downpipe.





Obviously some differences....

You would think.... but the shops here in Arkansas practically refuse to do anything without the car being there to make sure it fits. Despite me saying I don't care if it is off a little bit... Or else they want to charge an asston.

Would be cheaper for me to buy a welder and be done with it... though right now the crossmember change is the cheaper route.

I just received my Version 8 EJ207 today and I have a few questions. I received the JDM boost solenoid and I was wondering if I should use that one or the USDM one. Aslo I noticed that their is a "T" connector in the vaccum line that connects to the Blow of Valve with another smaller vaccum line that was cut about 6 inch's from the "T" connector. I am not sure what this line is supposed to go to, but I am dieing to find out.

Thanks

Tom

How much torque will the OEM 5MT and 6MT clutches hold? Though no one knows for sure, common knowledge say that the 5MT will hold 300 TQ and the 6 MT will hold 400 TQ.
I would prefer the effort of a stock 5 spd clutch now that I have my ACT Heavyduty street clutch on. The effort of the 6 spd is even lighter than that of the 5 spd, but if you don't plan on making more than 400 tq, I wouldn't mess w/it. Traffic is unavoidable.

Yeah, I saw that but I just wanted to get a feel for what people are actually running. I'm assuming that 400 tq is at the crank (not positive though?) and I've been reading conflicting things on the forums as to what the actual drive train loss is on a Subaru. Just looking for some real world advise from people who have done it. Thanks for the input!

i'm running 346 lb/ft through the stock STi clutch, as per Airboy road dyno software. it's been holding for about 15K so far with no issues.
Fantastic, thanks for the input!

Use the lower mile accessories if you get them , why wouldn't you right?

Edit added some pics.


The clutch setup I currently run and recommend:

Stock newer version pressure plate
ACT 6 puck sprung or sprung full faced if your scared
mid-weight flywheel 11-12 lbs.

Stock disc material is old school tech, heats up and burns up too easily if you ask me. Plus this setup can be had for cheap, I did mine for under 300 with flywheel. You can use any clutch if you know how to properly shift. Im on the glass 5-speed and launch perfect all day.
Those pics will help out a lot, thank you. I've read a little bit about this set up and that is what I'm leaning towards, though probably with a standard weight flywheel. This seems like a very streetable set up that would be good for auto-x and light track use which is exactly what I'm aiming for.

Has any one used a F1 Racing clutch on their 207?

Like this one...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/F1-RA...Q5fAccessories

Also what are every one's opinions on the stock boost control solenoid? Or should I just get a Grimmspeed bcs?

Thanks

Tom

Eagle Motors is great, I got 3 motors off him, all excellent shape and no issues - most are in 25-50k km on the clock. He is local to me, one of the better places to buy EJ207... Did you get a complete swap or just motor only? If its a complete swap then its simple to run a compression test.

To wire AVCS dont buy IA harness just open/slice open the JDM harness and use the OEM wires which are shielded. PS pump and A/C comp is good to go.

I got the complete engine swap from him. That included engine, ECU, engine wiring harness, downpipe, and twin scroll turbo setup. I already bought the IA Performance wiring harness so...I will just use that since i already spent the money on it.

What is everyone using for tuning on their 207's? My tuner uses "Open Source", but I cannot seem to find it anywhere on the Internet to download. I already have a Tactrix OpenPort 2.0 cable, and the only software that I can find is "OpenECU" on the Tactrix website. If my tuner is sending me tunes that he has tweeked on his "Open Source" tuning software, will I be able to flash them to my ECU through "OpenECU"?

Thanks for all the help and input

If you need a base tune I run on 93/94 E10 octane fuel here in Canada, I have been running it for last 2 years. No issues on my end, but use at your own risk.

Thanks

ej20ajk,

do you have any logs of that map. I'm going to assume your using the turbo it was designed for...vf37.

some strange wgdc compensations in that map. whats the point of adding 10% duty cycles after IAT of 68* to 230*? I mean if its 50* ambient and you sit in traffic for a minute your IATs are well into the 90s*. Just seems sorta strange to me with the already high wgdc in the tables.

Have you tweaked the map at all or have you just ran it as is for 2 years?

VF37 - pretty much stock V8 EJ207, with exception of exhaust

No logs, haven't kept them, occasional Learning View, just to check on th car. Yes its VF37 equipped.
WDC(IAT) are stock tables from my original ROM, never looked them or adjusted. WDC was adjusted originally by the tuner.

I have been working on the following map, its based on two other ej207 roms I have obtained...its more conservative and should be good for 91 octane.

ok so im looking into getting a ver7 ej207, im considering getting the 6speed trans with it because my current motor blew and idk about putting a more powerful motor on my stock 02 trans. i just installed a new act clutch and the motor went so would you guys say 6 spd or leave stock til it blows or look into ppg gears. right now the trans is ok shifts fine. also i plan on ordering from jdmmtors here and there package deal includes everything to put the motor/trans in my 02 im just wondering what other stuff i need to install i know the motor needs the avcs wires but do i need anything for the trans.
also the ej207 comes with a vf30 right what size injectors does it have. im trying to see if my vf48 650 and fmic would be a better setup.

If you can afford the trans, no reason not too, less work to do right now rather than if it blows.

well either way im gona have to take out a loan for this so its a matter of how much i have to borrow. but i was thinking about ppg but i just realized when you buy the deal its 6900 where just the motor is 4100 so the trans is like 2800 and i dont think i can get ppgs installed for around 2800.

It will indeed be cheaper to do everything as a bundle pack. If I could have afforded to I would have. I have a 5-speed with RA gears in it already, so didn't want to wait another 2-3 months to save up for a 6-speed with it too. However going to keep my "emergency" fund with enough for a 6-speed swap if it ever comes down to that. Hopefully won't though, and not really expecting it too.

However, taking a loan out to do car upgrades? IMO not exactly the smartest move... I'd take out as little as you need to get the job done if the car is down and NEEDS to be back and running ASAP.
