Re: Joe's 93 RHD Legacy Wagon Build

I'd definitely check/confirm the alternator is hooked up and charging properly.

Can you describe the intermittent power issues a little more and the specific symptoms?

Yup, you want the green and black diagnostic connectors to be unplugged unless you want to check the codes. Instructions on my site.

Glad you got it sorted out. Yeah, you can remove the entire hill holder cable if you don't want it. I couldn't tell you how to properly adjust it....this is something that carried over from the 80's Subarus. My Dad's old GL wagon had it in there.

Re: Turbo Oil Drain on old EJ22E - NA/T

If fitment/interference isn't an issue I suppose you could do that. Typically it's the valve cover grommets that fail not necessarily the gasket so you should be ok there.

Re: SVX IAC work on EJ22?

Yeah, if you can do it would likely require heating up the body of the valve. I'm assuming the pipe is pressed in before rotary valve and bearing are put in. So if you do put heat on it I would be careful to not get it too hot to damage any seals or bearings.

Re: SVX IAC work on EJ22?

That's an interesting idea! I don't think I've seen anyone try and use it on the EJ series engines. It doesn't have the lines for the coolant so not sure how that would affect cold idle...if at all. I would think the electrical part would be the same as the EJ22 counterpart so I think the ECU would ...

Are you sure you have the correct gaskets for the valve covers as well as the correct grommets for the bolts?

Re: Legacy777's 1990 Legacy Turbo

Are you talking about the o-rings on the injectors? I don't know if they're the same or not. I think there is a 440 injector thread on here with part numbers and you can probably use one of the online subaru parts websites to find the part number for the 550's.

Re: Emissions trouble (high CO)

Yeah, the non turbo exhaust has changed designs over the years a bit. Your best bet is either to try and find a complete exhaust setup from a newer non-turbo engine and/or piece things together with universal fit stuff and muffler/exhaust shop customizing something. The only real constraint is the O...

Re: Joe's 93 RHD Legacy Wagon Build

Joe,

Other thing you should check is whether the starter circuit is sending a signal to the ECU. There is a specific input on the ECU for the starter cranking. If for some reason it's not seeing that, maybe that could be contributing to your issues.

Re: Legacy777's 1990 Legacy Turbo

I think if you remove the caps you alter the flow pattern and/or fuel atomization which may not be desirable.

Re: What transmission is this? (with number)

Do you know there are five in it because that's how many there was when you rebuilt it or are you going off the manual? Based on what I see in the parts manual it list five plates so where are you looking that says four? Go to page 254 of 1,265 that shows the diagram for the clutch plates. Page 253 ...

Re: Engine rebuild time! How are my cylinder heads looking? (Also, possible timing issue)

In looking at the pictures nothing stands out as really bad. The charred look on the cylinder heads is normal and not rust. Regarding the valves being open, if the cam is on the spot where the valves should be open then that is normal. When aligning the timing belt one of the cams is like that so ag...

Re: Swapping an EJ22 into a 2005 Legacy GT?

You're going to likely run into issues with the ECU and other various electronics and emissions systems meant for the 05 cars. Some of those things just didn't exist in the older cars and retrofitting is likely going to be challenging.

Re: catch can setups

I wouldn't recommend blocking the vent that distributed pressure between the heads and crankcase.

It may work, but if you're designing a setup I wouldn't suggest blocking it.
