Hi everyone,

This is a project I have been working on and not too long ago I got it to its current state. This was a fun swap to do and I enjoy how it drives. I did a factory EZ30r and the original drive train. I ran a Hydra unit and converted the throttle to a cable system. My friends at Motion3 did the exhaust which I was very satisfied with. The exhaust is 2.5in diameter from the Y pipe back. Here are some photos of it a long the way. Apologies for how few there are, but enjoy. I will post more in the near future. Other changes that are non-power train related: JIC coilovers, cusco front and rear strut bars, white line front and rear sway bars + end links, polyurethane steering rack bushings, white line positive caster kit, polyurathane shifter bushings, BG9 front end(needs paint, haha), BG9 tail lights, memoryfab seat, etc...
This was my wiring fun!
The intake system has changed, but this is all I had to post for now. The cone on the TB set-up is kind of......

A little too slammed for my tastes, but a fast old school wagon is right up my alley. Very cool.

Well, damn, someone beat me to it. I've had an EZ30R sitting in a crate for a couple years now, just haven't had the time and motivation to get it into my Legacy. I'm hoping to do it this fall/winter.

I'll definitely be picking your brain as I get around to finally doing mine.

I've been putting together a list of parts for mine. I'm not in a huge hurry, I just got cams and LW flywheel and clutch a few months ago so the rs is fun to drive for now. But I've been wanting the H6 swap for a while. Good job, it looks sick. I love the late 90's wagons.

I am going to post a few more pics and hopefully some video soon. Thanks again for the responses, I know Motion3 is really psyched on the responses to the manifolds.

Pat, if you have any questions I am more than happy to help.

Pat, if you have any questions I am more than happy to help.
To start with, what are you doing for cooling (radiator, fans, hoses)? I know from looking at the engine I've got that it has the factory oil-to-water cooler, much like the turbo EJ25s. I'll probably add an external oil-to-air cooler, as well. My N/A EJ25 has some trouble staying cool on track, so I imagine the EZ30R is going to be even worse.

For the radiator, fans and hoses I just ran the factory radiator and hoses. The radiator sat up about 2 inches or so too high, so I just changed the radiator support to make it fit, nothing special. As for the hoses I had to cut them down a little to make them work. For the fans I ended up using 2 slim fans on the front of the radiator and had them push air instead of pull. Nothing too special. I suppose you could always use a larger radiator if you have concerns of over heating. I don't believe there is an aftermarket choice for this, but where there is a will there is a way. As for oil cooling, oil temp should kept at a specific temp. You don't want it too cool. I have not taken my car to the track and unfortunately I cannot give you any oil temp readings for I do not have a gauge at the moment.

Thanks for the update. I'll probably look into a universal radiator of some sort (Griffin, BeCool, whatever) to fit the biggest thing in there that I can.

No worries there, as the stock oil-to-water cooler actually works both ways. The coolant heats up faster than the oil, so the coolant helps warm the oil up initially, but once you start pounding on it the oil will get hotter than the coolant (assuming the cooling system is up to the task, and assuming there's no other oil cooler installed), at which point the coolant will pull heat from the oil. So, if I keep the factory oil-to-water cooler the oil won't ever be over-cooled. If I decide to ditch the factory cooler, I'll use a sandwich plate with a built-in oil thermostat to keep oil temp from getting too low. That's how my Mustang's oil-to-air cooler is set up.

On track with the EJ25 my water temp goes up to ~100C (212F), so the factory oil cooler is helping, but not as much as it would if the coolant temp stayed down at the T-stat setting (which I believe is 192F). I wouldn't be surprised if I could help that by getting the radiator cleaned out or replaced.
