Re: Timing is done, car won't start.

I think you have something unplugged. The temp gauge climbing all the way up is a symptom of something not plugged in,.

Re: Spun sleeve?

OK, this is my take on the spun sleeves....... Happens at the factory!!!! Think about it.... Block is being bored, sleeve spins a bit.... Are they going to through it out? NO!!!! You can totally assemble a block with a spun sleeve, you just drop the piston in with the rod, then bolt the rod to the c...

Re: Good piggy back engine management

I have only managed

430 whp/torque........

out of the PP6

Therefore.... it must suck.

While my motors blow up, it has NOTHING to do with the PP6. I also pretty much have the fastest old Legacies in the US.

The PP6 works.

Re: Perfect Power maps for 22t?

A base map is a blank map that simply allows the PP6 to let the engine run. The base map somewhat depends upon the wiring of the PP6 (the global settings)..... Do you have the bypass plug? If the PP6 is wired correctly, then you can use the bypass plug and run the stock ECU, no PP6. This GENERALLY s...

Re: EJ257 Rods on EJ22T crank

They work fine, they are the same length. Same bearings.

It is only if you "stroke" the block by using the 2.5 crank (79mm versus 75mm) that you would need different pistons.

Try a "helper" spring on the wastegate. Sometimes the wastegate blows open when it should not... That was my issue....

Re: Just ANOTHER 1990 Legacy turbo conversion.... hahahahah

Boost will not hold on the drag strip. Not sure why, but now suspecting wastegate is fluttering. Basically pulled the wastegate line and still can't hit over 22 psi and then it tapers down to 17ish... On the freeway in 5th, I can hit 25 psi and it holds steady..... That by the way is probably 500whp...
