Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

According to the tuner I got my ecu from, I will remove the piping from the turbo inlet to the IAC for 2 reasons. The first being I now have a Prodrive style motorsport turbo inlet that has no additional attachments for pcv/IAC/bpv etc. Also the tuner said going from the cold side of the intercoole...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Those valves are sexy! Coating looks good, too. I'd be interested in before/after pictures of the ports, if you have any. Sorry to hear about your co-driver. If you end up needing a co-driver and want to fly me out... I appreciate it! Get the car running first and I'll go from there. Had about 1:15...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

The uppipe and turbine housing came back from Swaintech today. The Supertech intake valves should be here later this week and I can start figuring out springs, retainers, and buckets. And just as things start coming together my co-driver was pushing someone's car over the weekend and snapped his Ach...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

I looked at doing the parallel fuel rail mod and decided against it primarily due to the space. There just really isn't much room to do that modification without it taking up a lot more room. I think with a good flowing fuel pump and safe tuning the series setup should be fine. I've been parallel s...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Inconel exhaust valves arrived today from Supertech.  SEVI-1016 for anyone interested (ej25d/ej20g fitament) Taking my sweet time cleaning up the ports without removing anymore material than needed. Also ordered some new fuel rails. Not sure where opinion stands anymore on series vs parallel. Most o...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Received the rotating assembly back this morning. It is completely balanced to within 0.2 gram.
I think that means everything can start going back together.

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Sure don't look like three-angle grinds, do they? Tumble along the port walls actually improves flow, so leave them rough. Also port cross-section area is directly related to tq production. So, for a smaller turbo, lower-revving engine... smaller ports are better. Rough as in you wouldn't even clea...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Uppipe and turbine housing shipped off today for coatings. Turbo will come back apart to have the the shaft and bearings WPC treated. Hopefully this video works so we can compare the difference on how it spins pre and post treatment. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5c381bb55c5b1/VID_20190110_162908.mp4 ...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Haven't progressed to much with the heads yet. Life in a ski shop during winter [emoji849] But the cams came back from being WPC treated today. That satin finish is tough to get used to. This week I will get the up pipe off to be coated and I hope to find a source for some valves for the ej20g/k/ej2...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

I tore into the passenger side head today. Wanted to see what was done or not done from the machine shop last summer. I thought a performance valve job would have different angles cut on those valves and the area at the seat would be much smaller. Am I wrong? Since everything was apart I decided to ...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

That pirce seems very modest. Hope it works for you. I wish I could give some insight into why the cams do that. Having worked at a cam shop though, I can say that it's not uncommon. Toyota cams were the worst about it. One would be bright and shiny and the next would look almost as dull as the cor...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

A step closer today. I'm hoping this is the end of the crankshaft woes. Received the crank back from WPC. It's really interesting, the journals actually feel smoother/slicker than polished. The bottom end is going to get balanced in the morning. I started to clean up my cams from the rebuilt head de...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

It doesn't noticably change clearance. It is out to the 0.0000x" I guess cost is up to interpretation. My hope is that with this done, service intervals and part reliability with be improved enough to offset the initial cost. This lot cost about $130 after shipping to process. I plan to send my cran...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Back to making progress! I think we have the crankshaft fiasco figured out now. I fit the bearings then pulled them and sent them off to be WPC treated. Now the first round of parts is back from WPC. I had all the bottom end bearings, the oil pump, and the piston pins done so far. If you aren't fami...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Haven't made any progress myself. After ordering too many bearings I'm back to where I started. I mis-measured and found the machine shop didn't grind past the factory limit but he did grind it enough that I can't get the clearances I want. Using King XP bearings 0.25mm I have 0.001-0.0011" of clear...

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Just an FYI, the stock non-turbo 2.2 has the same crank so you could pick up a good used non-turbo 2.2 crank and use that. That would eliminate the bearing concerns. I know it'd be some more polishing and any other crank work you want done to it, but would eliminate the bearing oversizing. Thanks. ...

are you saying subaru oem oversize or aftermarket oversize for subaru? i know acl and king both make oversize bearings for subarus I called King and they don't go far enough undersized. King and oem down, on to ACL now I guess. Of anything I have done to this car, bearing clearances are probably th...

Subaru oversize doesn't seem to be thick enough. I'll have to call around tomorrow.

Hmm I just found the factory service manual and both journals appear to be ground outside the useable limit.

Fantastic. [emoji849]

Time to get back after it. Due to the service I received here in town, machine work is being done in Colorado which unfortunately has added to time and cost.

Re: Tyler's Legacy SS.... under an impreza shell

Just to make sure I am reading that correctly, the head is 127.5mm thick and the service limit of 0.3mm. if my head is thinner than 127.2mm its shot?
