Timing chains done!


I think tomorrow I just might get the front cover on, but for now the engine is all wrapped up in plastic bags again.

If any of you EZ30D guys need a chassis side engine harness with ecu and tcu, send me a PM. No longer need mine since I decided it would be easier to swap a 5-mt into an Outback H6 rather than swapping a motor into an Impreza. That and I got the Outback for free!

800ft of Ultra Grey RTV and 59 bolts later...





I think tonight I'll continue working on painting various brackets and hard lines. You can just see in the 2nd picture the breather hard line that connects the heads across the back of the engine - I'm doing everything flat black like that. Nothing special, just Rustoleum "Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 2X" flat black - I have to say, I'm certainly no expert painter, but this Ultra Cover stuff lays on pretty nice. Tonight I want to do the fuel lines and the coolant crossovers.

My one aesthetic quandary at this point is that I had the accessory brackets powdercoated "aluminum" a while back. So, they're nice and shiny silver, while the block and heads are kind of grungy silver (despite efforts to clean them up, it's just too much work to get into all the nooks and crannies), and the intake manifold is yet another shade of aluminum. So, I'm not really sure what I want to do with those accessory brackets. I guess I should bolt them on just to see how they look.

In amongst painting various brackets and hard lines I took care of this:



Not that anyone will ever see it.

Were you swapping the EZ30D or R? I have an ECU from a RHD 6MT EZ30R that I'm leaning towards selling. The part number is 22611AK170 if you're interested.

got one on the way from an interstate wreckers (being posted) so if it doesn't work, will do mate.

they're all $100-150 mark at wreckers/on ebay, for what it's worth.

Glad you found one, I'm almost 100% certain the EZ30R ECU would've been worthless to you.

mm there's two others on ebay but i'm buying the cheapest one first and then working my way up from there

wiring tech tells me it's fairly common for them for some reason to just be uncooperative with a transplant. we drove the car out of the shed, onto the street, started it up a couple times etc etc. and then it just randomly shet itself.

cracked it open to find a fried transistor. took it off, soldered one from the ej25 ecu on but no luck. unfortunately don't know what caused it either, so can't just put an X volt/amp fuse in as a safeguard. might get him to install one anyways. stick the multimeter on the input, find out the volts/amps/whatever and then put a corresponding fuse in.

EG33 HELP !!!!!

Planning to build a 500bhp EG33 but need some good advice on stock cylinder heads and valve train.

Has anyone used the stock valve train and to what limits, like bhp levels and boost.

The plan I have is to forge the short motor port the standard heads and run 2 TD04 or TD05 turbo's, all advice welcome and sorry if this has already been covered but cant find any answers anywhere.

Thanks Adam

After getting the timing chains done and the covers on, I've been somewhat slacking. Had to order a number of parts (vacuum and coolant hoses, simple stuff like that), and sent my Fidanza flywheel to Fidanza to get a new ring gear installed (starter motor hasn't been engaging right, and has worn the existing ring gear unevenly). So, until I get that back - should be early next week - I can't put the engine in the car.

I suppose with that in mind I should be working on other aspects (like a fuel pump replacement, dash removal, etc), but like I said, I've been slacking.

Thanks for the reply, how do you know this and if its true then it has answered my question I think as 300 KW = about 400 bhp at the wheels so not for off 500.bhp at the flywheel

couple of other aussies have done h6 swaps and eventually boosted them. iirc perrin made about 400whp before they cracked theirs open too.

300 @ wheels is the equivalent of 200 @ the wheels with an ej remember. i.e 50kw/cylinder. quite a low figure really. hence the reliability being so much greater with these engines.

But was that with stock valves - lifters - cams !

i'm fairly confident it was, yes.

basically anything bigger than a gt30 and you need to do engine mods.




on another note: anyone know if there are any differences on a JDM wiring diagram? i fried my ecu, plugged in a couple of aussie ones but they just won't quite play nice.

The Perrin car built by PDX was an EZ30R NOT and EG33. It put down 416whp on stock short block with drop in pistons and upgraded valve train. I think that was at 14lbs of boost off the GT30. It's all on Perrin's sight. I might just get bored and reread all that. OR I could continue reading wiring diagrams now that I've finally sorted out how to read them right. WAY easer than the other times I didn't take the time to decode.

As for power on the EG33. Stock EJ turbo rods, drop in pistons or over bore(remember these are EJ22's x 1.5), port the heads, go over ALL the oiling, and probably one of the biggest aids is converting the heads from hydronic to solid buckets. Keep an eye on the compression of the pistons you decide to get. Personally I'd run 9:1. In my EZ I'll run 8.5:1 till some point that I break something then drop the money on non-off the shelf 9:1.

well my OBX headers are here. ecu's still roasted though. if tech can't fix it tomorrow it's going off to another pro to try & fix it. still haven't diagnosed the issue that roasted it though.

Got my Fidanza flywheel back yesterday, so this weekend I should be able to get the engine in the car. I need to get it off the stand, install the rear main seal, then install the flywheel and clutch, and it'll be ready to go in.
