Re: ej20k piston rings and rebuild issue questions

...i just had the shop hone cylinders and replace rings... This is probably why its smoking. You should not have had the cylinders honed. Who rebuilt the engine, was a Subaru specific shop with experience machining a split-block engine, or was it a hot rod shop that's used to iron block V8s? https:...

Well, installing the N/A MAF certainly isn't part of this recipe, you need a MAF from a turbocharged car.

Re: RIP EJ20G

I’m guessing maybe a spun bearing, but I don’t really know what caused the engine to seized while running so abruptly. Sounds like you spun a bearing, causing the rotating assembly to seize. If you had been on the highway the oil pressure likely would have been high enough that you wouldn't have no...

How's the VF39? Properly primed before those 250 miles? Also interested in the IC.

Re: Parting out 94 turbo legacy wagon

Kindly be advised that the Tail Lamps for these babies are usually gooped fairly well in with some heavy duty factory 'schmegma' (can be a pain in nuggets to remove) God I hope they're not held in my smegma, that would not only be unhealthy, but fairly disgusting as well.

Why not just clean the IAC? There are several tutorials out there both for the legacy and the later imprezas. It's pretty darn easy.

Re: 1991 Subaru Legacy SS, 123K Original Miles! Updated w/ p

The CARFAX report states that this car sustained "severe damage" in an accident in 2015. How was everything repaired? Do you have pictures of the undercarriage? Ouch, yeah $5k is a lot to ask for any car that's been branded. Are you running that trunk lid with the spoiler holes open, or covered? An...

If I were to run 550cc Top feed injectors, instead of running the adapters for the yellow top side feed injectors, would the 550 tune still work?

Brake clean for me, doesn't leave any residue. WD40 isn't really a cleaner or penetrating fluid, but it does those things adequately. Brake clean does leave a residue.

Re: Valve replacement on 2001 2.5l sohc engine

You want to be cautious about using oils with zinc in them as that will cause issues with the catalytic converters and O2 sensors. Zinc in oils is only a "problem" for cats if you are DUMPING oil into the engine and leaving a trail of smoke wherever you drive. Older engines NEED zinc and other addi...
