Default ej20tt motor swap questions

hey guys. i got sort of an idea on this motor. i know that the twin turbo system wont fit on the car unless its right hand drive. basicly the whole thought behind it is to take off the twin turbo system bolt up a wrx exaust and run it like that. now i guess where i get stuck and where maybe people here can help is with the ECu.

buy losing the t.t. will the ecu still be able to compinsate without the one one turbo, or will it be okie?

just curious if people can fill me in on this motor

cheers

you can always custom make your own up/down pipes to fit around the steering shaft. might make for an extremely tight fit but it can be done. make sure to heatshield anything that comes within 1.5'' of the turbo. try to match the same diameter of pipe that is on the passenger side turbo.

ECU will be pissed... Stand-alone time...

Maybe open ECU and a good tuner will work?

well i would just go with the wrx exaust manifold and turbo it would fit properly... plug up the oil and coolant lines on the drivers side and go from there. it looks like the legacy motor only runs one MAF. will prolly have to change the intercooler...but again not a big deal.

i guess im just thinking about the ECu and making sure that will work...

What do you plan to do about the inlet plumbing and intake manifold. TT has twin inlets feeding the intercooler...

front mount of course... and the intake plumbing doesnt *look* like to much of an issue... looks can be deciving though lol. in my area here its not difficult to get stuff custom built.. i have TWE right down the road from me... tuner works which does alot of custom stuff... auto dream.. even though there a huge nissan guys they still know how to built intakes and intercooler plumbing :P


im guessing this is something that hasnt been tryed to often, which is unusual considering the price you can get these motors for

im doing the motor swap now and ive relocated the driver side turbo to where the battery is serious fab work but worth it because if u leave the driver side turbo where it is it will boil the brake fluid.
