Im still waiting for a final dyno to tune my car to its fullest, but we have to do a base tune again when i get the shorter headers made up so that it is a bit more standardised for everyone else, (plus the reasoning behind doing this is another story in itself!!)
Any progress on the tuning and/or headers?

I emailed Link a while ago about this and still haven't received a reply. I am interested as to how well the EZ30 runs with the Link. It might be worth swapping one in if it is better suited than the Hydra.

My overnight parts from japan just turned up (The front crossmember which did actually come from japan) and im doing the exhaust now, my cold airbox is getting modified because it wouldnt fix over the throttle cable. So not to long at all

For all of you that are after information on the Link G3 running the EZ30R, contact Dave from Dtech Motorsport. He used to do development for Link and now does the sofeware and tuning training for the G3. Hes a guru and a legend. He did the link in my car and they are building a Hillclimb special coupe with a WRC widebody kit made completlely of carbon kevlar and its powered by a turboed EZ30R which should make a miniscule 700whp.

The bad news though, is the Link isnt offically avaliable to use for the EZ30R until my car is completely tuned and tested. Then they can be sure that there are no issues anywhere when they release it to the market.

Chris why would you want to use the EZ36? It won't be able to handle the power you might be looking for and fuel economy's not advanced enough over teh EZ30R to be worth the time. Besides don't you want to just SC it like SickSubie or TomSVX? I've seen SickSubie's in person and well I started humping the bumper. Of all the engines for an SVX I'd say the EG is still the only and best choice but a 30R could work. But that's why you have 2 cars.I"m gonna NA build the EG33 in the SVX and EZ30R swap the OBS. ^^ FUN FOR ME! And I"ll be buying my EZ soon!

Well, Update(ish)...
I through the front crossmember i got in the pile of "no-good crap" as i need a V10STi steering rack for this bad boy to slip in and to tell the truth, i cant be bothered.

So i just got some flanges laser cut and they turned up at work this morning, and we are going to spend time building perfect tuned length headers for it. I have the cold air box in it and il take photos for you guys that want to see it when i get home tonight. Not to much further to go before it gets tuned.

Sorry to anyone hanging out to see how my car goes, work has been oober busy and i hardly have any spare time, iv been as busy as a 1 armed brick layer in Baghdad.

I am tempted......and I actually have a '96 EG33....but I think I like the EZ30R too.... so I have this 3.3L sitting in the garage....just sitting....because my car is swapped with a hybrid WRX motor; 2.2T shortblock.

I LOVE that exhaust sound!!! Suscribed!!!

My car is slowly getting finished, i have just put my airbox in, pictures pretty much speak for themselves. But for those that are super interested, its the Hans Solo version made of carbon fibre, its not F1 but its not carboard either...


Bare throttle body


Then the cardboard one we turned into a mold


Then the final product, that still needs to be attached in a more permanent manner (than cleverly hidden duct tape and cable ties...lol)


Cheers to my mate Tom who more or less made the box with his left over Carbon sheets and helped with the cardboard cut out.

The cold air box looks pretty good. I'm more interested in seeing the headers you guys fabricated - let's see some pics of those!

Thanks for keeping up posted on this.

Any updates? As I said above, I'd love to see what you guys came up with for headers.

Yes updates on headers. They won't do too much help on my GF but seeing more shorter length headers will be good. I need something done for mine and want to be ready with a game plan when I need to get a set made. Also do you know if Link is working on Throtle by Wire aplications? Maybe even some Subaru Si-Drive system equalivalant? One of the reason keeping me from going standalone. Also how do they do their harness integration? Like the Hydra or like a few that actually plug into the factory harness?

Hey anotherwhitegtb,

Big fan of your conversion mate, just have a few questions for you (or anyone really).

I've been looking at getting into a project like this recently, but I want to know exactly what I'll need. I can get the EZ30R pretty cheap, but it doesn't come with the ECU or the Loom. I was planning on running a Link G3 anyway, so the ecu isn't a problem.

My question is, what exactly does Link mean when they say they supply a Loom..? Is this a replacement loom for the standard EZ30 ECU? Do I still need a standard EZ30 Loom? I'm just confused about all this wiring... I understand the mechanical side of things, but never understood anything to do with the wiring of cars...

I've emailed Link, as well as Dave at Dtech Motorsport, but neither have replied (been over a week now). I noticed that your conversion went well, and I thought I'd ask you.




Cheers

Yeah as far as I know this isn't running yet. Actually I'd really like to hear where this is at from running. Check here though for some more info.

What car are you referring to, Gaddis? If you think the car that's the subject of this thread, which is the car owned by the guy that STi GUi addressed, isn't running then you need to work on your reading comprehension - a lot.

Hey guys, I can confirm that this car definately is running, and has been for a while now. I'll give NotAnotherWhiteGTB a call tommorrow (NZ Time) to see if he can give any updates that you guys have been asking about. I'm not sure if he's done the new headers yet (or been caught up with uni studies )
as I've been waiting for ages for him to show them off.

STI GUi: when Link say that they can supply a loom, its usually an adapter so that the G3 can just plug into the standard harness so that you don't need to wire it all in.

Lol yeah I've seen that video like 50 times (it's what makes me want to do this conversion even more ). I was pretty sure it was up and running

Well I've spoken to David from Dtech Motorsport, and from what I can tell, the wiring supplied with the Link G3 completely replaces the standard loom, and simply connects to the plugs on the engine itself... I've sent a reply to clarify that I understood him correctly, but that's what I got from his initial response.

I never understood wiring though... So for all I know, I could have just repeated what you said and not made any sense at all... Lol...

Can someone explain it to me please. Is there wiring on the engine (plugs and leads for the dizzy etc.) and then a complete seperate engine loom and that's it? Or is there another bit of wiring somewhere... I'm just confused about all this wiring


Cheers,
Nader.

The wiring from the engine to the ECU is integrated into the complete wiring loom of the car on Subaru's. This is true on the older models (like the GTB that this EZ30R has gone into) and I'm not sure if this is still the case with the newer models.
So its not an easy job to take the engine loom out and replace it.

BUT,
For the Wire-in Links, you can get the AdapterLink
(http://www.linkecu.com/products/engi...inkdescription)
to allow it to simply be plugged into the factory wiring harness (where the factory ECU would normally plug in) from what I understand. If Dave has said that its a simple installation, I'd take a guess and say that is what is used in this case.

YOu know you like pushing the "correct others mistakes" button a little too much. It's been a while my mistake. SORRY!
Other note. Any knews on how the tuning's been? Did they get any further on a full running intergration of all systems? Hope there's some newer info to post at some point.
