Hope you find the problem Jaxx. I am planning the same thing with my car... a 96 jdm swap. Can't decide if I am going to swap tranny also or keep the original. Lachute will probably do the swap.

no not really iit came with the motor .. i pondered using the a/c condenser as a heat exchangre but found an air to air i/c .... never fired the car with the air to water on it.. the air to water is for sale (BUY IT!!! )


air to air dunno still getting base line tuning down .. hit 25 mph at .5 bar today for the first time (think baby steps)

then my right front wheel berring sezed so i guess ill have to fix that first..

i have the an a/w i/c, but i dont wanna take the time to do all that work. u think i'd be safe using an a/a with an EJ18 with a TD04 running around .4 bar boost?

Hey Jaxx nice setup you got going their buddy..

I am curious to what clutch setup you are running, I willing to believe that you kept the cable setup instead of going with a push type WRX.

I will be shortly going down this road as well..

Thanks,
Imprezd~

the clutch ah yes...

turns out that there are 2 sizes of subaru push clutch (either will work) with a cable-push or hydrolic-push i bought both my flywheel and clutch used .. proublem is that i got a 8 7/8 clutch and a 8 1/2 fly wheel

ended up using another 8.5 inch clutch that we have no idea what it came from. it is definatly stiff but the friction disk we used is to thick so it does not like to dis-engage

edit:more on the air to water here look at the bmp files they are from the AU srevice manual click here

so in the quest for bankruptcy last fall i bought an 96 ej20k(vf-22) w/ a 4.44

so yes i am starting with an working ej20g w/ standalone
but i want a stock like drive-ability

so today i started the wiring
i am using what i have started calling the "rich" method -unless he comes up with a better name
the idea is that you keep the stock harness intact
and create a standalone harness that runs the engine .. you then splice in the wires you need
any way i stated with this diagram and this excel sheet

so after sitting for 3 months (busy time of year at work) today i stripped the harness down to what i think i need

It is pretty easy to wire it is hard to get it to run right unless you really know what you are doing.

As jaxx found out firsthand. IIRC, it literally took him over a year to really get it sorted out...

my G didn't have a harness or ecu ..it was only $600 plus it was a 200 ps version

once you have a good TOG the tec is actaully pretty easy (w/ a wideband and correction turned off)

target 11.2 under boost add advance till it knocks then back off a few

I love the tec, I have no idea where my old tec II maps are though. I'm still using the t3 on one of my cars, just hate mafs on a 4" intake, and I don't see any benefit on adding a blow-through maf and flashing when it runs just fine.
