Re bump for above info /\ and possibly the part numbers for all of the fuel injector o rings. I would think they are the same for all subarus from 93-01 but I'm not sure. Has anyone else had to order a new set? Surely everyone doesn't recycle them...

Does anyone know a good resource for finding the correct part numbers for all of the injector seals? I emailed a certain vendor here and they only gave three part numbers for each seal, two of which crossed to the same part. So in essence only two part numbers per injector. Each injector requires FOUR seals. Three different sized ones for the body and one that sits in the manifold. And the vendor told me the price for the o rings was for "EACH" one. Lets see, over $5 for each tiny o ring and I don't even know if they will be the correct parts.... nahh.. Does anyone know of any illustrations that have part numbers for all of the injector o rings? I don't want to have to drive over 100 miles just to find I could have ordered them online and save fuel. (bump)

Here are the part numbers I was given:

O rings
16698aa060 (crosses to same as 050) PT190294 injector o ring $5.47
16698aa050 (crosses to same as 060) PT190294 injector o ring $5.47
seal
16608aa020 injector seal $5.22

I have no way of knowing if the 16608aa020 is for the large flat rubber washer at the bottom of the injector body or the one that is in the manifold that the nose of the injector fits into. ????? No illustrations ftl

Well the funny thing is, the injector seals are the same as the ones in my 2.5 and the previous 1.8 I had. Yet I can't get any good info on those either. The headgasket is a matter of me getting one from Keirna who's in Japan and says he can grab one from the dealer and send it to me.. if his plan falls through I'll just get the cometics directly from cometic. I'm just trying to get the oems, I like the way they are designed. I would have ordered the cometics first, but some people have told me they are bad about not sealing well so I'm trying for oem first. I want to avoid having problems because of a couple of gaskets. I did get my cheapo downpipe today. Aside from one of the flange holes being off by about 1/16"(dremel ftw), it is great quality. I'm not using the cheapo gaskets, I've got some apexi metals. The flanges seem thick enough and the tubing has good welds and consistent diameter all the way back. It is 2 15/16" id pipe, it looks HUGE. Its also light , about 13lbs. (same as the exedy flywheel I've had at the shop for two weeks, lol)

Btw, does anyone know of a compilation of subaru headgasket thickness information could be? I'm curious about the various models from jdm 93 up to usdm 05 2 liter models.

Default headgaskets ftl

Still trying to find a set of 11044AA463 oem ej20k metal headgaskets. Last friday Keirna was going to try the dealership that weekend. Its Friday again so I guess he is busy with things. I'm not trying Rallispec again as I waited over a month to find they still didn't know when I'd possibly be able to get a set. And a couple of other people have informed me it would take forever through them. I really would rather the oem because of some warnings from people about the cometics. Bump because my poor block is still in a million pieces...

seriously, just get the cometics. they work perfectly. stop tryong to save money and get them from somewhere reputable. (ie, they should have them in stock to actually look at the thickness)

I've already spoken to people at cometic and they aren't any more expensive. A few reputable people have warned me about them though. If I had been aware they could be purchased directly from cometic, I would have purchased from them in the first place. The oem have the integrated rubber sealing surfaces and are a little less critical if the engine surfaces aren't totally perfect. I'm just trying to be safe. Believe me, if I was trying to save money I wouldn't be waiting on Keirna to pick some up in Japan and send them.

I finally recieved my valve compressor and tried to soak a couple of the valves in a carb cleaner bucket, but none of the carbon is soft enough to scrub off with a green scotchbrite. Anyone have ideas on how to get it off without scratching or pitting the valves? The carb cleaner bucket worked miracles on the pistons... I don't understand. ????

Flywheel nice and flat


Btw, anyone know where to get the dowel pins? Neither machine shop that worked on it had them. I also got both flanges on the downpipe surfaced.

You may have to Go to MSC after measuring the dowel pin hole in either the clutch pressure plate or the flywheel itself....

I am sure it will be a simple metric dowel pin....

sorry I have no more information...

GOOD LUCK!

Not yet, trying to find a house. The only thing I can really do is some wiring, but its been kind of hot and I've been really lazy. I don't want to bolt the heads and the rest back on until I can have it in a garage on the stand. (and I don't have the garage, lol) The longblock is a little heavy but I can carry it out as is, with the heads and everything back on... don't think so. Its killing me not having this thing in.

small update, after the shop drilled the pins out


new pins knocked in


holes filled with epoxy/liquid "steel"


front side, I used loctite as well, kind of pointless hehe


my cheapo pressure plate centers perfectly now

Well, I'm hoping to even still have A/C after the swap, lol. Don't know if it will still fit correctly with the intercooler and turbo
