Which ever you decide to go with just please talk to others that have done it before getting in over your head. For internals I would suggest ecutune.com. Their engine controls are great for NA but I would go full standalone for a race or race powerlevel car. SickSubie's got a supercharged built morot 6speed SVX running the Stage 3 but getting a hydra made for the car and alot more on the way for next year.

If I might make a small recommendation, the stock EG33 oil pan has pretty bad oil control. It's fine for a heavy touring car with street tires, but when you place an EG33 into a lighter chassis and add slicks there are some starvation issues.

A friend of mine destroyed his EG33 bottom end this year road racing, and even the Accusump didn't save it this time around. I built him an oil pan with a flat bottom, extra capacity, some extra baffles and trap door around the pickup tube. I'd heartily suggest doing something similar as a purpose-built track car with slick tires will undoubtedly produce some serious G-forces!

HTH,
Bob

that looks like the buisnes Bob thanks for that, i had taken the sump off and had a look at what could be done, and was thinking along similar lines, i also have given the guys this forum address etc so they can keep up with, and add to as they go along, so if a new boy pops up from Taupo you'll no who it is.

That must take a lot of patience. You're basically building a car from scratch?

I whole-heatedly agree.

In the SVX community we have had very limited success with forced induction on the EG. The high compression and head design very low efficiency yields for boost applications.

Swapping in the pistons (low compression), rods, and other ECU internals by LAN, coupled with a twin turbo, would be a beautiful thing. The only successful CAR with a built EG33 is the (last time I checked) fastest Impreza on the drag strip. But that's a completely different monster obviously, as he just goes fast in a straight line.

Defineatly subscribed. Keep us updated.

After talking with kevin down at kelfords i agree, but the fix is not all that diffulcult or expensive, its the exhaust thats the problem it dosnt flow all that well, but with some reshaping of ports coupled with a valve resize he assures me he can get it to flow some reasonable numbers, then its just doing some homework on a cam design to compliment it and a decent system to get rid of it all
