Default After 1.5 years she's done, Check it out, Pic Heave 56k beware

So here is my ride, for about a year and a half now everyone has heard about this beast, but nobody has really seen it, Well she's finally done.
Here are the specs
1991 Legacy SS
1989 ej20g with AWIC
- 3" custom exhaust with divorsed downpipe
- V1 Sti ECU running 17LBS Boost at 5200RPM
- 1999 RS interior
- 1997 Legacy twin Turbo steering wheel
- Various other JDM stuff, if you want to know what or where I got it just ask.
-2004 WRX Struts, rear springs and tophats
- 1998 Legacy H&R Lowering springs in the front
- Various bushings and suspension components by whiteline
- WRX Hoodscoop
- WRX rims with re92's
- 2 Donor Legacy SS's now crushed and probably in the pop can your drinking
- Auto to manual conversion
What's on the way
VF-30
2004 STI yellow side feed injectors


Now that it's done, I'm so happy, It's really fast, like scarry fast and handles like a dream. What can I say about the whole conversion, people who said that it's only like 4 wires, You all were wrong, it's about 15, repins an whatnot.
Props to Richard and Guito here in ottawa for helping me get her going, these guys are swapping gurus who know thier stuff, Thanks guys.
Big Thanks to Michael Hooper at Jarco Enterprises in Atlanta who sold me the ej20, and a year later when he heard it had rod knock, sold me a replacement 96 JDM WRX engine with Tranny at cost (that will be put in in Sept) So right now it knocks like a bastard, but runs o soooo good. Enjoy the Pics, let me know what you think, Mods, if you can figure out how to resize the pics let me know.
Thanks
Frazer


Almost their


She's Done

Looking very nice, it's apparent that you did your swap right. I like the AWIC. Are you planning to tidy up those hose clamps?

So what wiring is involved outside of converting to the coil on plug ignition, and all that that entails?

Well not too much, Switching the pins for the Jegs Maf, eliminating the existing USDM ignitor and wiring. Their were afew other pins that needed swapping, I think my biggest problem was a large red squirel that decided to go to town one day in my barn. He particularily enjoyed the Pressure sensor wiring, as well as heater controls. He is now dead !

what turbo are you running?
can't see how you would get a vf10/11/12 to 17 psi
mine was maxed by 13 psi at 5000 rpm

did you see how i used yellow side feed sti injectors on my ej20G?
(modified 1.8 rail)

I'm just going on what my boost guage told me, I'll show you a pic of it next time I grab my camera. Iv'e got a VF-8 not the 10/11/12
I saw your install, but have heard the RS rails are direct fits, so I thought I'd go that route.
- Did the injectors do anything for you?

VF-8's can handle that sort of boost. While they use an older bearing design, they do use the P-18 exhaust housing...

Pics resided, Sorry about that, My VF-30 will certainly work with this ecu, It's on it's way to deadbolt for some service.

I've got a '98 2.5RS manifold with rails, that I test fit to my Ej20G. It bolts right up. So even if the '98 injectors don't fit the Ej20G rails, the whole manifold will swap over...
