I might to that to this new car I am getting after I EZ swap is taken out. I won't to fix it up and it needs paint so I might do a second Honda flare kit on some 18x10 wheels.

Time will tell.

Ahhh... Is this Mick's (aka Slack) old car that Mike @ PIA bought? If so, then you have my throttle-by-wire, since I traded Mike that for the conventional throttle body and adapter that was on the car.

275-280bhp is probably attainable, but 275-280whp is unrealistic IMO.

I wanted to use the stock ECU but I fear that is way over my head with wiring.
My intention is to go with a Vipec V88 or Link G4, which are basically two versions of the same thing. They came out of the box already set up to run the EZ30R - when you go into the initial software setup of the ECU, EZ30R is one of options on the pull-down menu. I've heard from multiple sources that the Hydra is a capable ECU, but very non-user-friendly.

Hey It looks like I am going to sell the ECU and wiring from my GC8 so I can do the Vipec option so if any of you know anybody that wants 90% of the EZ swap done let me know. It will be the hydra, and the harness.

Also I have a second Hydra 2.6 with a custom harness for 97-99 Legacy but with extra leads to run WRX coil packs and a wrx throttle body. Perfect for a swap.. Both have widebands. Asking 1500 for the EZ setup and 1300 for the Turbo setup. I also have an 04 STi hydra harness if you want to use that with one of the ECMs for 1200.00. And... I have a never used hydramist for sale for 500. Help Johann keep the projects alive. Tell your friends.

so did you make that uppipe, by just using a borla rep header with the flanges, and made a downpipe as well, or what. Im interested in making my own turbo kit>

For the Turbo Kit? Yeah I had a Borla header. Then I cut and bored out the stock cat pipe flange and make the up-pipe. Got the Turbo and wastegate flanges off ebay and then made the down-pipe using some 3" ss. Pretty easy. The easiest thing to do it take the exhaust housing off your turbo and connect the flanges to them. Tack them together. Set your turbo and then make the brace for your turbo flange to the engine. Once that’s all done you can just run the pipes to the header and catback and your done. Locating the Turbo is the hardest part.

Hey all. Had a super busy weekend. Rear Main seal in my N/A engine was leaking pretty bad so I made the choice to spend the weekend turboing the Lego! Built the engine Friday night. Fabbed the Turbo Kit, finished all the wiring, and got all the go fast bits transferred Sat. Sun I pulled the stock motor, swapped a few more bits, worked out a few last min things and by the end of the day dropped in the new motor. Today I am leaving work a bit early to install the Turbo Kit, finish the DP, and fab the FMIC intercooler piping. Then its finish wiring up the Hydra, install the fuel pump and some gauges and ready to roll. I took some teaser shots for you on my cell phone.

Enjoy!

THat's so funny - most people's weekends usually go:

"Got a leak from the rear main seal, so I pulled the engine out, broke several knuckles and a ratchet. Finally got the engine out and and discovered I had the wrong seal. So two trips to the dealer (needed the rear plate too) and I finally got it back in. Went to put the engine in and discovered a broken engine mount."

Kudos to you!

Well I did have my share of set backs. Located the turbo in the car and made the bracket for the flange (which I cut off a stock WRX up-pipe.) Mounted it to my new engine on the stand with a Stock N/A Header. Tacked the Pipe up and then set it in there only to realize the Borla flange wasn't in the same spot so I had to alter the pipe a bit. Also de-loomed the stock harness so I could integrate the WRX Coil pack wires and MAF sensor into it and I put the MAF plug on the wrong side so I had to redo that after 20mins of work. Then I put the Turbo Return line in the oil pan but when I took the motor mounts off my stock motor after pulling it found that it hit it so I had to take the pan back off and weld the hole up and move the bung. Cut a nice chunk out of my finger with the cutting wheel. I am sure the intercooler pipe will need some modifications as well. The turbo kit looks great for just using **** I had around in the shop I'll have pics of it tomorrow. Today I get to lie down in the gravel under the car while I finish the down-pipe and modify the exhaust a bit. Weather is nice today so at least I am not workin in the rain again haha.

So yea don't try to make me out as something special or anything I hurt myself and muff up as much as anyone else haha. I am just fast cuz I have done 5 motor builds, 9 motor swaps, and built 3 custom turbo kits so I know what works and what doesn’t. Repetition is knowledge, knowledge is power, and turbo swaps made out of scrounged parts is win haha.

Dom thinks I can get 265whp 300ft/lbs @ 2700-2800rpm on 18-19psi so it will be a great auto x setup. So I am thinking 310whp 335 ft/lbs @ 3200-3500 on a ported 16g maybe.

I donno I thinking I am going to like the turbo setup a lot so it will give me more time to take the EZ30R swap slow and maybe go for a 450whp supercharged setup or something in the spring. I’ll get it running in the GC8 and then have a race between them. If the EZ’s power curve stomps the lag of a turbo I’ll just throw it in like that.

P.S. the Legacy top scoob is open for voting. I don't think I have a chance in hell of winning but if you like my work show me some love. I'd like to be in the top 5 at least.. I think this Turbo swap will help though.

Dude why tap the oil pan ofr the return? The DOHC heads have a perfect spot for turbo oil return. Its on the bottom corner of the NA head, looks like a little smooth square. Drill a hole in the middle of that then tap it out for a bung. SOOO much cleaner and it is the OEM placement for the 20G heads...which yours are modeled after.

FYI also on the back of those heads is a oil port for the turbo line. It has an allen key plug in it.

If you need pics of what I am taking about, I'll snap some of my spare heads.

I also saw your ride on top scoob....I voted for mine LOL. G/L

Yeah I knew there was one in there but I didn't know anyone that could conferm that for me. Its all done now and it looks and should work great. Got the intercooler piping about 75% done before it started pouring. I'll finish it today along with the DP and Exhaust. Then its inside for some warm fun time with my dash/ gauge cluster and finishing up the wiring for my hydra.

Heres another teaser of my progress so far:



And a couple selected from my last Auto X:





OH OH and a Vid!!
