compression test compression test compression test (head gasket) there is no reason why you should be building that much pressure to blow any coolant lines. unless your radiator cap is bad, and isnt letting pressure bleed off into the overflow tank. did you check the lines from the motor to the heat...

Did the car run just fine with no codes before you shut it off? If so i would say its possible that you have a grounding problem, or a battery issue of sorts. check the voltage of the battery and then possibly do some resistance tests in your grounding system. If you had existing problems, im not re...

Do the rear main seal, reseal the oil pan, um, cam support o ring in the back. I think you should check out the oil pump backing place in the back of the motor to. I think it needs to be removed and resealed, or just need to make sure it is tight? Can't remember. you got it. you can do the head gas...

the last picture is of your overflow tank right? i think you really need to do a coolant flush. it will eliminate a lot of questions. It really does look like your head gasket is leaking externally. from what i can tell it looks like the head gasket is the graphite composite type gasket. which i hav...

if its happening every 8 starts, i wouldnt worry about it too much. Check your coolant and oil, make sure its all good. Its not overheating is it? i have seen condensation do this before. If it starts to happen more and more often then i would get suspicious.

it will "bolt " up with no problems. But there are a few things that would need to be done to that motor specifically to ensure reliability. If either head gasket is leaking or it is the original head gasket, it needs to be replaced. The adhesive used on the original gasket from the factory had a pr...

there are a lot of threads on this. not only here but on nasioc and lsi.net. As far as a quick answer, do a wrx suspension swap. the setup is so close to our cars it a good easy direct swap over.

you could just get a NA ecu, drop in a NA EJ22, and then switch the cam and crank sensors. and it should run pretty good, at least well enough to pass emissions. surprisingly its actually a really cheap way of getting around your problem

Yea the wiring could be painful depending on what manifold you use. But if you use your original wiring for the most part, placement of different sensors hasnt changed too much. Either way i see how wiring for some people might make it difficult. I know tons of people that are mechanical but cant wi...
