Cueauto- I don't know. I will try to get ahold of Paul today and find out. I haven't had much time to even worry about it lately, because I'm too busy trying to fix my pos bimmer.

I always thought bimmers weren't as bad when it comes to electrical issues, but after just looking over the relay/fuse table, I really have to wonder what kind of drugs the engineers were using when they designed them.

Plus I've only ever worked on Subaru's before, so everything is so different with my e30.

Slack, on a Suby note, The engine you used is out of what?

We may have another project car looming and we found out the Legacy Outback cmae with a 30R....if his car goes H6, it has to be that engine.....

I am guessing that it came out of a jdm legacy 3.0R or outback. Gruppe-s said it was never in a car, but after examining the engine I am not so sure.

What MY Outback are you talking about? The higher powered ez30 wasn't available in the USDM till MY2005.

IIRC it was an 01-03. There is a reasoning here otherwise I'd sugest doing an EG as I am more familiar with them.

Dunno, have to look on car-part to see whats out there. That and I'm not wanting to deal with the drive-by-wire or immobilizer

so i know i asked this on the last page, but what is needed to get the svx lsd rear diff working in an early impreza? i could just go find another one as suggested, but i have an opportunity to take what is needed from a svx parts car and i could get the rear end really really cheap. any help?

....fitting the SVX rear diff into the Impreza isn't the problem. The problem is that the SVX rear axles won't fit the Impreza hubs (at least on mine it didn't...I had rear drums). I would look for another rear LSD that has the gearing that matches whatever trans your using out of an Impreza and call it a day.

I went the hard (read expensive) route of making my own rear suspension kit.

BTW, you can not swap CV ends between the Impreza and SVX...mabe the STi axles but I couldn't on my 96L.

I know that isn't what you wanted to hear....I hated to find out the hard way.....trying to help you avoid some headaches!

i hear ya, thanks for the info.
do you, or anyone else, know if the rear hubs for the disc brake cars (impreza LS) would fit the svx axles? i would probably do that conversion at the same time anyway so that i can get discs and mount a swaybar.

I'm only speculating, but I'd imagine the hubs themselves are the same from the drum to disc equiped cars. Lower manufacturing cost I'd imagine. I do believe the 04 STi was 5x 100 and the SVX axles fit them but again....just speculating....can anyone verify?

what are people running for exhausts? the ~12" long headers with some pipes made to connect it to a normal H4 catback? has anyone head what a true equal length dual exhaust sounds like?

Yep it sounds like a porsche, which is kind of wrong when its coming from a scooby, but its not to bad. Im getting a stainless dual exhaist made up in the next few weeks, il post what that sounds like when its going. Even my current setup sounds evil...

so anyone got the wiring diagrams for 97 svx motor? i am still in the planning stages of my swap. and will need a copy of them, but you all knew that because you have done it.

by the way post some pic of your radiators? i need some visual ideas.

Since this is a "resource" thread I'm not hesitant to ask such a n00b question...

Is everyone still using their stock cross member? If so, did you have to make modifications (notching) to it so the engine and exhaust would fit?

Also, has there been any headway made on the EZ30R ECU issue. I've been doing lots of reading today (I'm burnt out actually) but I think it was Slack's thread that had tons of issues with the immobilizer equipment. I saw mention of using a Hydra stand-alone but I honestly didn't read through all 45+ pages.

James- Subaru has a site where you can download tech manuals, including wiring diagrams, for a small fee. I don't remember the URL, but search around in this forum and you will find it.

Libila- For the EZ series, no modification is needed for the cross member. I'm not sure about the EG33, though.

For an ECU, Hydra and Link both have available stand-alones.

i just plugged the numbers into a gear ratio calculator:

The 2.2L 4.1 rear diff with a .78 5th gear will cruise at 3100rpms at 75mph.
The svx 3.545 rear end with a .78 5th gear will cruise at 2800rpms at 75mph.
Going from the .78 5th gear from the 2.2 to the .738 5th gear from the wrx only saves you 150rpm at 75mph.
Stock SVX 75MPH @ 2500RPM.
Stock trani is a 3.54GR
Most people with SVX's do 1 of 3 things swap for a 4.11(OBS or Legacy), 4.44(RS or Legacy), or 5-speed 04 WRX. A few lucky bastards have done STi 6-speeds.
My sugestion would be to leave the stock drive train and get the car running first. I'm doing a EZ30R into a 97 OBS and am getting the engine in and running then doing the drive train(Well I have swapped out the read drums for 02 WRX discs but that'll get changed too) I'll be doing a full 06' swap over as full as I can anyways. 5eat and all.It's seems you need a good source of SVX data so I"d try checking out the SVX network some more. I know you're on there asking stuff so ask away.


What I'll be doing for my swap will be a full change over and update to the car as I have ODBII and need to pass a readiness test every year now.
EZ30R
Stock looms and ECU
stock TBW(till I figure something out)
5EAT and rear diff
acomidatiing as needed out ward drivetrain changes
gReddy brake upgrades
Coilovers(Megan Racing right now not sure what I'll change too)
aftermarket bumper cover(give better air flow in...plus looks cool)
bumperbeam delete(7#'s, frees up room and I"m putting on a brush gaurd to protect the body)
HTAuto's Wide body(might need to wide if I have to match the 06' stance)
lightened fly wheel(do they make a moderately lightened one?)
Perrin Crank pulley
InJen CAI(depending on throtlebody)
And finally
a helping hand from a gReddy Emanage(though they have a vManage now but only preprogrammed for certain cars.)
I think that's it out side of astetics on the inside and a few other matching ones on the out.
I've followed Mick's swap and have been doing other reading so any $.02 from anyone? Ordering engine once taxxes come in.

Sorry, 4.1:1 is what I put and ment but I was thinking of the 4eats of most early Impreza's. I don't spend lot of time worrying about the stock trani I have 86K original miles on my 94LSi, and don't plan on swapping with another 4eat.

Good luck with the OBD-II. I want to know how this works out with the Immobilizer and Limp Mode in the stock ECU. Both of those have been issues. It sounds like Mick and ECS worked out the Immobilizer issues, but were foiled by Limp Mode.

Off the topic of this thread, but why Greddy? Unless you're getting the stuff at about 1/2 price, there are equally (if not more) capable kits out there for a helluva lot less than the over-priced Greddy BBKs.

Considering you've read all of Mick's trials and tribulations, I'm wondering the same thing as adhowe...

What do you know that Mick didn't that's going to allow you to what he was unable to do after well over a year of effort and hundreds of dollars spent on OEM parts?

Hey guys, don't discourage him. He's going to buy all my leftover parts. Haha!

But seriously, many people have got the immobilizer system to work in other vehicles, but just not with this swap. My dead end was lack of ABS. The ecu needed to get some speed signals from all four wheels via the ABS sensors. Since my car did not come with ABS, the complexity of getting the stock ecu to work was just not worth the trouble. ECS would have had to not only swap out all the hubs, but also install an ABS system into my car. As I have never owned a car with ABS (my 325 has it, but it doesn't work), I have no interest in going through all that just to get the car running. Even if we had done that, there may be several other issues with the stock ecu after that. I will never find out, though.

Yeah don't discourage! I'm gonna be going through and actually swapping EVERYTHING I can do have as much of an update of everything. My car is stock with ABS so that situation is setled fo r the moment and even if I have to upgrade to a newer ABS unit I only have to do half the work Mick would. I"ll be going through the entired wiring including down to the headlight wiring and "stock" 06 fuse box. Pulling out all the wiring of the dash and replacing all that. Most other things like fuel system increase will be handles by upgrading the pump an dlines to handle the needed fuel increase. My big problem to over come that Mick found out for us was the ingnition recognition. I might have to go find a junked 06 and pull the whole collum to make sure I have everything I need to have a registered key and codes for the ingnition interface.(Are there any run on sentences? I'm in ramble mode so most likely.) I was gonna use STi injectors, but I might not need to go as high as that I think. Stock size anyone? I'm mostly taking the same approach as the STi swaps into things like GC/F/M's.(There was a really nice couple of 04' STi's into late 90's OBS's I"ve seen done very nicely. One by ECS.)
Anyone know what the EZ30D(R) uses for air metering? MAF or MAP? I"m guessing MAP since Mick's and other's have had just the cone filter sitting on the Throtle Body for the moment.

Note: I was gonna go with gReddy brakes cause they were cheaper than the Brembro's and have a full kit with all the components together already. I"ll deal with that when the car is fast enough to need it.

Mine is MAP because the Hydra is MAP. I don't know if the stock ECU is MAP based or not.

Sounds like you're going to use the stock 5EAT that goes with the EZ30R. This should simplify matters a bit.

Injectors: Use the stock injectors.

ABS: You may yet be updating hubs and the like. I don't know if the ABS wheels for the EZ30R vehicles are the same as the first generation Imprezas. The trick is that the ECU compares the speeds indicated by this system and the primary VSS (from transmission) to check for faults. Not only does it need to know that the ABS is there, it needs to know that the speed is nearly the same as indicated by the VSS.

Gearing: The above may cause problems with non-stock final drive ratios, depending on how the VSS is sent out of the 5EAT.

Pedals and throttle body: You'll need to switch to the stock DBW to maintain adequate idle control.

Airbags: Does anyone know if the stock ECU will allow normal operation without the full compliment of functional airbags?

There's a lot more out there... Trailblazing comes with a price. Mick and I have paid our dues.
