Default 02 WRX, EJ20, T04E, CP, Eagle, and Other stuff.

So, I have been on these forums for a little while. I am not going lie and say I am a EJ series EXPERT! I love cars and all types BTW. I own a 98 Z28 (LS1/T56) i built the engine myself and the tranny needs it as well. And a 01 windstar lol. I find the EJ series engines very fascinating, flat four, sounds beast and can make some serious power. My younger brother owns 02 wrx ej20 turbo 5spd. Very nice car just needs a little more horses. Plans are to fortify the bottum end and to increase boost. I can build and modify pretty much anything, I do not claim to know it all. I understand what makes and doesnt make power. I have read alot on this forum and all the builds that people do on here are AMAZING. We have been getting parts in like crazy. So here is the parts list/whats currently on the car.

Parts Acquired

Cp 92mm Forged Pistons (8:5.1 Comp)
Eagle Forged rods
Brand New OEM Crank
ACL bearings (Rod & Mains)
ARP head studs
Cp File to fit rings
All New factory gaskets (From a Subaru Dealer locally) We will be putting in Cometic head gaskets
Competition 6 puk Clutch (ALL new Subaru HARDWARE)

T04E T3/T4 turbo ( Yes its a GSP turbo, got it for a good price and im going to replace the bearings and hardware) Still in the looks for a good T04E turbo Recomendations?
Custom Down pipe
Custom Up Pipe
38mm Wastegate (external)
Lots OF heatwrap!

Heads have all new Ferrea Valves (We already had them all cleaned and new valves last time we had the heads off) Lapped and cleaned
Ported/Cleaned

Fixed a couple electrical such as #4 ignition plug, knock sensor, and MAF

Now I am trying to figure out some of the vacuum lines. Specifically the ones that go right next to the inlet pipe to the little sensor that has two ports on it? i don't know what it is. I looked on the WRX manual ( Ken-Gilbert ) and i couldn't seem to find it or a diagram to figure out where those vacuum lines go.

I seperated the intake from the TGV's one of the bolts snapped not stud one of the bolts, I am almost afraid to try to weld anything to it. What would be the best way to take care of it?

Today I got the rings fitted to the appropriate Cylinders. Tops were all set at around .020-.021 Seconds were all around .024-.025 Oil rings where all around .015-.019.

I am waiting for the Gaskets, Which they should all be here around the end of next week. If that all happens and all is good this should be up and running with in the next month. So ill post up some pics and then Im open to any types of discussion on this.


















I took a Socket 13/16's i believe and cut a window in it to add it to my valve spring compressor. It works too

So I rebuilt the turbo today, the brass bearings measurements where off a little. The only question I have is, the input shaft bolt/nut torque? Or will it tighten its self? I thought I heard that they tighten themselves or something.... Idk. The next step would be to set the motor in and fab up the up pipe and the down pipe.

So I have been doing work to the intake. Cleaned and polished the intake, and ported the tumlbers. The TGV's were deleted, but they still had the plates that seperate the ports. I took a hand saw and cut the panels out, and grinded the tumblers.

scooby - you mean for the TGV's? my lil bro got TGV delete kit, he found the kit on eBay. He said it was 90$. ( The only thing is it does not plug the CENTER HOLES!

I need to KINDA polish the TGV's and the exit ports on the intake. I was thinking of just using like a sanding bit on the dremel? or something i DO NOT want it to be like super smooth, just smooth. Any Ideas?

why the cometic head gaskets? The oem ones are very stout and have a low failure rate compared to aftermarket.
clean bugeye btw!

I guess I never heard that befor, I guess the own gaskets are mls. But there is no harm in using, I've never heard of cosmetic failures,... Unless I'm wrong??

So I have been working on things here and there. I am setting up an oil pressure sensor for the gauge. (Would like to no what the pressure is at ALL times) I cleaned and sanded and Polished the inake so here are some pics and i have a question on the sensor local.

On this sensor here is the location. Will this provide the oil pressure??









I am going to Rotate the turbo, was wanting to try to keep it in the stock location. but not capable.





Painted the tumblers black.

You can put the pressure sending unit there, but the most accurate location is going to be the port on the front of the block, under the alternator

People are then going to disagree with me, and my response is.. KillerB says so

I mean I don't see why it wouldn't work, it's an oil gallery and it gets pressure, correct??

Default Better later then Never!

So we have been tryin to find a good deal on a gasket set. After a couple nights searching online decided to go to the dealer and negotiate. online with shipping these set go for around 343$ dealer gave us a discount at 283$. Its arrives tommorow. So I have got everything cleaned and preped just need those block seals to get started. But i have a question and ill post these pics first. On the ACL rod bearings is there an upper and lower? On 4 of the rod bearing shells, there is a part number on the side with the notch for the rods, then on the other 4 the part number is on the opposite end? HELP! Im kinda stumped i dont know if there is an upper and lower shell in these engines. (YES i have used the search)

Here are the pics first pic is of the bearings with the notch for the rod.



Next is the one that plains off.



Here are some other photos of the engine being in the engine bay for mockup rotated turbo so here it goes





Now with all these upgrades I decided to port and polish the exhaust ports so here are some pics of the results.





We will be busy this weekend gettin the engine all put back together and sealed up. The we will drop it in and start finallizing the build so updates here shortly. Thanks

might be a bit late for this but did you use cometic head gaskets for this build? If so, did you make sure you had the proper finish (RA) on the head surfaces? Cometic is very picky when it comes to surface finish and if not done correctly will lead to head gasket failures

No no I am using a stock gasket set. I have read way to many failures in cometic and have been through one myself so no worries! Thanks though man

Nvm called ACL and the bearing orientation does not matter as the bearing material is the same on all so, next time someone asks you can give them a answer. Gasket kit arrives tommorow so tommorow promises updates
