Default just finished another swap EJ18<EJ207

just did a V5 1999 EJ207 swap into a 1993 Impreza L.

went prety easy, had a few hickups but nothing all that bad.

on this one i had to make custom power steering lines. but i was able to keep the AC in working order.

What did you end up getting for the accelerator cable? Do you have a part number?

+1. You need to Tee the overflow on the bottom rad cap with the one on the turbo cap at a minimum.

The coolant tank is part of the cooling system for the bearings on the turbo.

ugh i guess i need to remake the graphic


1.go buy 2 new .9 bar caps 1.1 is to much for the n/a radiator and they are like $6 each
2.take one of the caps and cut the shaft of the plunger off toss the plunger and the spring in the trash
3. put the plunger less cap on the radiator
4. run high pressure hose from the outlet of the radiator to the inlet of the surge tank
5. put new cap on surge tank
6. run low pressure/or high pressure hose from upper cap to the overflow

Ditto. I'm running a Koyo NA on my EJ20G and this helps a bunch (sorry for the thread jack Suberdave).
