Default Driving.

I've managed to get this weekend and do some driving tests. The first thing I've notice is the engine does does bog down when pulling off. The old 2.2L just didn't have enough grunt to do any good lauches. My normal lauch on stage was just drive off the start line. Even though the engine has done only 26 miles and a few hours engine running it's early days. Now this conversion is no STI turbo job so expect any neck breaking jerks between shifts. The power is there and the engine pulls strong. There seems to be lots of torque which is good for rallying. Today my friend with a turbo Legacy is coming over for a test drive so it will be interesting to see his reactions. Oh yeah the equal length header might not be everyone's Subie sound but with one straight through muffler it's damn loud and sounds like a WRC Peugeot 206/Ford Focus which I can live with.
I took my daughter out in it yesterday and she thinks it's way "cool"
Photo's to follow as I forgot to bring my camera home. Duh!

So my friend tested the car. He has a WRX and a Legacy turbo. He thought there was a lot of low down torque and seemed impressed with the power. The difference was around 3000rpm where his WRX gains some grunt and more power. Other than that he thought it was a good set up for the price. The testing continues.

Wow, Excellent Job F4!!!
I like what you've done.
I'm considering a similar build with my 2.2l N/A. Putin' the 2.5l block underneath my 2.2l N/A heads (I've already got the Delta Cams &
E.L. Cobb Headers). By any chance did you calculate the C.R. using
the Phase 1 dished pistons with the 2.5l short block and STi head-gasket? Or, did I just miss that part?

i am looking to do this same thing in pretty much the same car, but i was wondering if you knew what the compression was if you left the phase II pistons in and just ran stock 2.2 heads.

There is one post that contradicts it's self a little bit on CR

Quote:
In N/A form this set up bumps up the comp ratio to about 10:8:1 with the Phase II pistons(valve cut outs) the ratio is in the high 11's.I wanted to be safe so went for the dished Phase I pistons.
or are you saying with the phase I pistons in the phase II block gets you a CR of 10.8:1 and the phase II one would be in the high 11s.

So did you have to do any work to the pistons so the valves wouldn't hit them?

What rods did you use? Or are they both the same?

what is a delta grind?

Sorry about all the questions, but it's good to find some one that did the same thing that I am trying to do.

thanks
