98 Forester 3.0R

Default Phase 2 Ez30r Engine Swap

Okay time for updates, ive been a little busy since christmas working on swapping the EZ30R engine into my forester, here is some pics to show the work.

EZ30R engine

Legacy bulkhead harness.

empty forester engine bay

test fitting the engine

not much radiator clearance

clutch mounted

subaru decided to use the torx bit head bolts on the flexplate of the ez30 two stripped, the easy solution weld a bolt on to the stripped head and your can get them out with a standard socket.

So the engine bolts in perfectly stock h6 engine mounts work, just need a little more radiator clearance and its good to go.
