I know how that feels Spencer. Not good. At least it wasn't while racing someone.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnd.....




ITS ALIVE!!!
Once again...


Hopefully this is the last time I have to pull a motor because I HAVE to.


ej22e w/ Turbo Internals, ej20h Heads (Pretty Valve covers =) thanks doug LMAO)
td0Fail Turbo (spools like crazy with this block/head combo)

Running pretty good. Odd misfire/stumble when boost starts to kick in... Same way the ej20g was. Hmmmm... Me think I have a kink to work out.

Sure will do.

I put in the vf28... Holy mother of god this turbo rocks. Fast spool and awesome power for being only set at 11lbs
And this tranny has wayyyy to short of gears. It's almost hard not to bounce off the rev limiter

Hey guys! Two years later Update.

Car has been sitting since March of 2012 when I moved to Pennsylvania and I only brought my Lincoln with me.

So update as to where I was when I parked it.

94 White Legacy Turbo w/70k miles on the body

Engine:
2.2L
DOHC ej20h twin turbo heads
vf28 turbo set at 11lbs
ej20g Intake Manifold, if I recall its off a V1 STi RA as the runners have been hand ported.
440cc Grey Tops
06 WRX TMIC
ACT Pressure Plate
Stock WRX Clutch Disk
LW Flywheel
Perrin Aluminum Crank Pulley
Perrin Up-pipe
Perrin 3" Divorced Down-pipe
Cobb Cat-less Cat-back
Hallman MBC



Drivetrain/Suspension:
V2 STi RA DCCD 3.90FD Short Ratio Tranny (with No DCCD controller)
91 Legacy rear Limited Slip
04 WRX front brakes
Whiteline Front End Links
H&R Coilovers for a GC


Interior:
Alpine CDA 9887 Head unit
Infinity 520w 4 channel amp
Alpine Type R Components (front)
Alpine Type R Coaxials (rear)
JL 12" Sub
Some amp for the sub I forgot about
Factory Outback Limited Tweeters
Autometer Boost Gauge


Exterior:
JDM Glass Headlights
JDM Fog Lights
05 Legacy GT Wheels
93 RS-RA Rear Tail Garnish (its off at the moment but I think I'll put it back on)



So I'm picking it up in 3 weeks. But I need to do a few things.

Mostly just to-do list to get it back into shape like change belts and fluids etc. But also a few last mods.

I just ordered a set of Yellow-Top STi side feed Injectors and I'm going to order a RobTune ej20g ecu on my next paycheck.

I also have a set of glass EDM headlight lens that I need to put on the headlights.

Also have a full Australian/JDM Headlight Washer and new fluid tank to install.

List Version:
Install bigger injectors and edu (assuming I'm able to get the ecu in time)
Put in the Headlight Washers
Swap JDM Headlights to EDM ones



I'll keep everyone posted!

Well...given your track record, no. Lol. How are those h&r coils? My teins were good until the pillow bearings went to shit and now they make a lot of noise.

Lol well, I was on here regularly from 06-2011 then a small 5/6 month hiatus because I moved to Corvallis Oregon for the summer and was super busy with work. Then was here regularly until I moved to PA. So overall I've been here for awhile. Just not the last 2.5 years regularly because haven't had the car with me! :)

The H&Rs were really good. I'm hoping they're still in a-ok shape even though the car has been sitting because I really like them and don't to have to rebuild/replace them. They are really stiff but handle great as you would expect from coil overs. However they are not adjustable at all besides height adjustment. From what I understand when you order them from H&R you request the spring rate and they setup everything else perfectly for that spring.

I really do need to do supporting suspension upgrades though. Since most of the underbody parts came off my (now dead) 92 legacy that had around 250k miles, its safe to say most if not all of my bushings etc. need to be replaced.

I see. My teins have adjustable dampers which are nice to have so you can dial it in to fit your car and preference. When I got it the ride was much smoother but it oscillated too much so I set them several clicks stiffer and now the ride is much stiffer but better.

Well the car is back on the road. I forgot how fast this thing is lol

Fixing a few things today. It has an exhaust leak thats driving me nuts so I'm going to go out and fix that.

And it also has an idle issue.

Stumbles at idle when its around 800-900rpm then when you drive it gently (ie: no boosting) it idles ok but at around 1200 rpm. But when you get on it hard and into boost and then come up to a stop light it idles at 2500-3000 rpm.

Its done this before but I've never been able to figure this damn thing out.

Car is back in PA with me now! That was one long long drive at 4000rpm in 5th gear at 75mph with super stiff coilovers. May need a chiropractor now lol.

Anyways. Here is a pic right before I left.

I'll post more details on the drive and more pics later.
