Thank You. The wife came out after the wash and said, "wow it's pretty. I'd drive that, amazing what a wash can do."
Man, that's a stellar outlook and attitude. Made me smile. I've been feeling a little beaten down by wacky stupid problems but fairly easy fixes on my daily this winter, and I need a little attitude adjustment for sure.

We all go through it man at some point in life, just glad I could be of assistance .

Picking up where we left off yesterday, more gas. First day on the open road in the books. 62 miles of round trip fun and 1 thumbs up, we are back at home.





Things to sort:
Purchase Denso MAF
Exhaust Gaskets
Compression Test
Tune Up
Find Boost Leak
Rear ride height/Suspension pre-load
Braking (needs pads & rotors)
Alignment/Steering wheel position
Headlight Bulb Retainer
Trade hood or hood scoop

New engine time?? after finding this fouled plug and "0" compression on cylinder 3 I've decided to put it may be time for a new engine vs servicing it. I've spoken to an importer and they have the twin turbo ej20, would anyone happen to know if the LONGBLOCK is plug and play? or will I need to do the usually cam gear swap?

Sorry to hear that. I guess you donít want an avcs motor. The twin turbo legacy long block is probably going to require swapping the timing parts from your existing motor.

I don't, keeping it simple IMO. If it was the EJ257 swap I was going to, then definitely. As you can see I'm up late, reading into all the non-definitive posts regarding the longblock swaps. Some do, some don't, key suggestion was get a tune.

Would you really need to change the cam gears or could you just do the cam sensor trick like:

Just returned from checking out the two engines, one was ID'd as a phase II and the other a phase III. After some more reading, I've learned the "EJ20TT (ej206/208)" Phase III differs so much so, it is the least likely candidate for a simple 02-03 wrx cross over.

By ID'ing the cylinder heads (on the phase II starting with a B, phase III is H), I have come to understand their cam sprocket is possibly the exact match to the USDM V7 WRX sprocket found in OP's link. Thank goodness the timing cover was cracked on that engine I guess lol.

the drawbacks: increased C/R, which is not a HUGE concern but it is, the need for plugging coolant and oil lines from the LEFT side turbo (marginal cost increase), valve covers are different than the USDM wrx so replacement/service parts may differ (future maintenance stress), and lastly the injectors are side feed vs top (the basic cut and solder will cure that, it's only 2 wires).
http://elementtuning.com/techdocs/ej...llation-guide/

BH5A - 8.5:1 Compression - "Phase-II", or V5/6 generation.
BH5B - 8.5:1 Compression - "Phase-II", or V5/6 generation.

Being the "rebuild what you have type," armed with this info. I have a convoluted choice of preference to make. Budget replacement or budget rebuild....ugghhhh

Why not search for a legit ej205 ?
I realize you are on the other side of the country but check out JDM NY, Iíve visited their warehouse few times, they have a lot of ej205 motors for $900
Their website does not show all the motors they have in stock, itís best to call them. Iím planing on buying a motor from them in the spring when I resume working on my bugeye.

Well nothing is proper. Between both options IM, cam, and crank sprockets must be changed. The cost justifies the means if one was buying an EJ20TT. In the $900 range I can buy all the parts needed for an aftermarket OE rebuild. I was just trying to be mr.simple for once, but itís not working. I have the cart loaded for my mondaysí click n ship jic - 48hrs to make up my mind ��.

indeed. had some phone with the iPhone and tried to make some youtube content. I've officially named her "faye." I'll expand on that overtime. As for the build one more video will go up tomorrow talking about the ISB failure for the 5spd.

Something about images just resonates with me. Due to that fact, not sure if I'll keep doing videos & post. It's nearly 3/4x the work, only time will tell. As of right now, let's just enjoy the journey.

Engine Removal - ď0Ē compression cylinder 3.



Disassembly - after hearing air hissing out the turbo on the leak down test, I began taking apart the RH head



I also noted timing had moved and belt tension was extremely sloppy. Even though the tensioner was strong it would move as if it were seized and suddenly freed up. While checking everything I noticed the broken rear tooth on the cam gear. Is this from being pried off?



this cam cap bolt was seized. after cutting a grove wide enough for an impact driver I was finally able to get it out.




AAA to the rescue, back home she goes until I can sort the heads.

Gave the heads a quick rinse; not a fan of greasy / oil saturated parts when preforming cast cleaning.





To avoid going apes, but still wanting to improve the situation, I set out to clean some cast flaws, and blend some bowls. I would not be going all out as I did with my B25 Heads.

another bath


I find the infamous crack I didn’t see earlier


somewhere in the timeline I began “porting the TB & IM runners.” In the name of efficiency I do these things, I swear.


a member on FB was kind enough to donate these to the repair


more cleaning, pete peeves I tell ya! I’m plagued with them.

Then this deal reared its head. I couldnít pass it up as I plan to BAR both this car and my bugeye. 200 miles huh? I say give or take 1000. Let's be frank, some sellers like to hype up sales.

I like the pixs, the videos are definitely good also. On that note I love this car! I’ve been looking for one since the first day you posted about it. I can’t find anything here in the Midwest. This is the best build thread on nasioc right now. Keep it up!

Feedback appreciated man, but there are some sicker builds going down on this forum. I definitely hope you find one. There are some gems out there to be had. I'd love to find an unmolested stock one for a sweet deal, but I'm happy with this one if I don't.

They are a problem, in fact a common one. Will I be addressing it now? no sir. In the back of my mind I've already committed to doing a full 05 sti swap. This a "run what you brung" journal for now.
