Re: 1992 Legacy BC Heater Core replacement part

You got to pull the dash, and separate away the AC box if you have one. Double check you removed all the bolts and/or nuts holding the heater core in. Remove the heater core hoses that are in the engine bay. Then, you'll have to use all of your strength to pull the heater core out. It's been held in...

Re: 1992 Legacy Sun Roof control box relay issue

We never got those in the states that I know of. My latest turbo legacy did the same thing as yours, I heard a click but nothing happened. There is some kind of logic that won't allow the motor to operate if the resistance encountered is above a set percentage. Like a primitive limit switch. What wo...

Re: 02 wrx trans hydraulic conversion

The mechanical speed sensor screws right in where the electronic one goes. As for pedals, a perfect fit of course would be from a 91-94 SS. You can get most of the bolts to line up from other 1990s cars with hydro pedals, such as the 98-01 impreza RS, 97-99 Outback and Legacy GT, or 1st gen Forester.

Probably, but I'm sure you'll find out soon! :) That's a huge hurdle, finding phase 2 dohc cam gears with phase 1 timing marks on it. You lucked out.

Re: anybody out there + Megasquirt

Haven't heard of anyone successfully running megasquirt on an SS/TW. Something about not getting a good signal from the cam or crank sensor. I've heard of people successfully running it on ej20g based imprezas, and those sensors and triggers are the same as ej22t. So maybe board members didn't try h...

Re: Enduring Solutions ECU board and why you should buy it

My ESL is still running good after a couple years, and I just checked their website (http://www.enduringsolutions.com) and the price is down to £315. I paid £410. A really good deal if your local tuner is willing to deal with it. They never added the "motorsport pack" to the ej20g version, that's st...

Re: Mike-Tracy's New 92 SS

1600 miles and counting. I replaced the valvecover gaskets with oem ej25d ones. There are small but important differences between the ej20k and ej25d gaskets that I've never seen anyone mention. There are several "nubs" that have nowhere to go in the ej20k heads. I cut them off and haven't had any l...

Re: GC8 cluster in 92 rhd legacy

Physically it's not a direct swap, and plugwise it's not either. You should contact Iwire to see what's involved in rewiring it, I'll bet with Impreza cluster plugs you could repin it to work. If I were going to do it, I'd take everything out of the legacy cluster's case and put the guts of the GC c...

Re: Motor seized and looking for other options that is n/a for a 1994 legacy wagoooon

That would solve most of the issues other than the timing crank and cam sprockets being wrong. Someone in the UK (Carl Davey?) Created conversion spacers. However... The intake manifold has to be cut in half and widened! Better bet is to swap in any EJ shortblock between your 2 best heads. As long a...

Nope, electrically it is incompatible, and short of machining custom parts to physically adapt your phase 1 ej22's iac, throttle body and etc, as well as building resistor patch harnesses for the injectors it won't work.

Re: Motor seized and looking for other options that is n/a for a 1994 legacy wagoooon

There's the old phase 1 ej20s and phase 2 ej20s. The phase 1 version is what you want. It is identified by having raised lines and 16 Valve written on the valve covers. The phase 2 motors have smooth valve covers. Most likely you'll have to swap intake manifolds, possibly the cam and crank sensors t...

Re: ej20k piston rings and rebuild issue questions

I don't think anyone here knows the answer to the ring question. The ej20k's came with forged or cast pistons, and I believe I read those had different rings depending on piston material.
