Default AVCS block off plates?

Does any body sell block off plates for AVCS? Have a set of cosworth heads going in a wrx. I know that gruppe-s had a cam sensor adaptor to run a wrx ecu, but still need to block all the avcs oil passages on the heads. Also, any "dummy" plugs for the 2 cam sensor holes in the heads?

You really need to get all the AVCS peices and lines. Otherwise...bad things will most likely happen.

I know it a large oil leak, was kinda hoping someone made some kit of kit to use on a non-avcs car

I have two alternatives if you want to use the AVCS:
(1) IA Performance wiring harness
(2) A Hydra or other stand alone

It's not going to be used, that's the problem. I need to block off all the avcs oil passages, hopefully without buying all the avcs parts

I'd be interested in seeing what you come up with as I'm blocking off my avcs...I guess I'll see what I can do for is short of modding the cams.

Even though you are NOT using AVCS you STILL need to retain the factory oiling system of an avcs head because it will still act as a oil source for the cams. You will also need to use the proper banjo bolts with the screen filter inside them. The oiling system through there is very sentitive to debre.As far as sealing off the cam avcs sensor hole....I just used the sensor itself, but it wasnt pluged into anything.

Tap the AVCS holes on the front of the cam.
Insert set screws with locktite.
Install WRX cam seals and WRX cam gears.
No AVCS.

Profit??

Hes asking how to use AVCS heads as non-avcs heads on a non-avcs set-up. Not how to covert avcs cams to be used as non-avcs cams...

That's a tough one, the AVCS solenoid is the oiling for that part of the cam. You can't simply block it off, you need to create a path for the oil too. I think I'd wire the solenoids up to the battery via an ignition relay, and just run with them in place and open all the time.

? I believe the avcs soleniods are actually oil pressure activated. The only thing electrical on my avcs heads are the avcs pick up sensors located on the rear of the head, by the back of the cam.... I have non-avcs cams in my avcs heads and I retained the avcs oiling but have zero avcs wiring.....

You don't need to hook the AVCS solenoids to power but they must have oil as stated many times above. They feed the cam bearing.

It's quite simple really, if you are running NON avcs cams in AVCS heads, you still run the avcs lines, and leave the solenoid plugged in, these are absolutely necessary or bad joojoo. As for the rear cam sensors, you either leave them bolted in or make some aluminum covers to seal the holes shut like I did.

Obviously as mentioned the regular WRX cam gears and cam seals must be utilized.

If you want to run AVCS cams but not utilize AVCS it's the same as above but you must tap and plug the holes in the top cams.


edit: reading comp ftw. looking over the posts it seems most have got the idea.
