Default Cosworth Cam Angle Sensor Bracket

I was having a problem with the cam angle sensor bracket, so i thought i would post about it in an easy to find way. After I installed this bracket on my EJ25 from an 06 wrx, i was getting a cel for the cam angle sensor (p0340). The way i fixed this was by putting a washer between the sensor and the bracket. Apparently the bracket places the sensor too close to the cam to be able to read it.

How big of a washer did you end up using? Anyone have a picture of theirs?

I would like to know this as well^.. In another thread someone had success with a 1/16th inch washer. I would like to know what the gap between the sensor and the cam gear is supposed to be, that way I can get it right the first time whether I need a washer or not.

i originally thought the sensor was too far away, so i filed it down only to realize i was putting it too close. since i did that, my washer thickness is more than what you might need. as for doing it right the first time, its really not hard to take the sensor off and put the washer in if necessary. just grab 2 or 3 at your local hardware store .

just did this on my STI swap into my wrx....maybe i was lucky but i didn't need any shims....just installed and worked....had the car running but granted it's about to get a tune done so hopefully everything still works fine.....I don't know if there is an exact measurement to make it work i think you have to just keep trying....they shop that did my heads for me told me just put it in....if it doesn't run then start shimming a little at a time until it does. Also, just a thought.....your cam sensor could also be bad.....new one is around $60.....not a bad idea to get a new one just in case.

So this bracket is used to drop an STI engine into WRX? Looking into it now. Gonna pull the engine from my STI and put a built one in. I should be able to use the old engine into my 03 WRX?
