20g Swap cranks but no start

I need some advice, preferably from those who have done the 20g swap. But any advice is welcome. 94 legacy, put in a rebuilt 20g from a 96 wrx, cranks but no start. I have fuel, spark, and compression is 130 across the board except for cyl 4 which is 120. But do note that the engine was cold and the...

Re: EJ20G dead cylinder with good fuel, spark, and compressi

If the problem did not move with the injector then I would suggest checking the wiring on that injector back to the ECU for continuity to make sure it's good. If that checks out it's possible the injector driver could be bad on the ECU. Any chance you have a spare ECU you could test out? Wiring is ...

EJ20G dead cylinder with good fuel, spark, and compression

I swapped in an ej20g from a 96 wrx with 88xxx kms that sat for a few months, along with the ecu and tranny into my 94 t Legacy. I did all the necessary wiring for the ecu change along with the 4 to 2 ignition conversion. At idle the engine runs terribly, lots of shaking. There is a tapping sound fr...

Re: Entire 96 wrx driveline cost

On ebay the ej20g engine and transmission with ecu usually go for $1500 shipped or plus shipping. Sure you don't get the rear diff, driveshaft, control arms, and wiring harness, but do you really need all those for an additional $3k? The driveshaft won't work for a legacy, the control arms on the w...

Re: To triple check. Will this ecu work with a rob tune a ej

That is a Hitachi ECU. It will not work for a Robtune. A Robtune needs a JECS ECU. It's more than just a hitachi vs jecs thing - the twin turbos and other turbo engined subarus came with hitachi and jecs ecus, (example here: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/SUBARU-LEGACY-GT-B-4WD-MANUAL-ECU-UNISIA-JECS-CORP-...

Re: Annoying Vibrating when cold

When my car was an automatic I found that the slightly higher idle when the engine was cold created a little more vibration compared to when the idle was at its warmed up level. When you come to a stop and are experiencing the vibration, put the gear selector into neutral and see if the vibration g...

I have a 94 ss auto with 184k km's, and when the car is cold and I come to a stop from driving a short distance the whole car vibrates. Its not consistent though. It doesn't always happen and when it does happen some times are worse than others. Another thing to note is when I let off the brake and ...
