  1. @DaveRAC I'll have another 2 tickets if they're not gonna be used , pm me how much , I'll pay pal some more funds over and you can chuck em in the post with my stand pass and other ticket ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. Not much of a update just been enjoying driving it tbh but with the s.o.c japshow finale stand at santa pod being on next sunday . I gave it a "quick clean " and a coat of wax this weekend, so hopefully I can get away with a rinse and dry next Saturday ๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. Does that mean there's only 5 of us on the stand ? if so that's a shame ,as it's a good show . If your stuck with the tickets , my wife and daughter were gonna pay on the gate . So If nowone else joins the stand , I could buy a couple more off you but would obviously prefer more scoobs on the stand .
  4. Sunday the 29th of this month at santa pod . Here's a link to the stand thread chap .
  5. With the coilpack in the centre of the inlet (in your pic) I'd say it was a phase 1.5 which would be based on a v3/v4 late 96 to 98 Impreza engine . But as I said before I've only ever worked on 92 to 06 turbo imprezas, so wouldn't want you to commit on buying another engine on just my guesswork. Hopefully one of the n.a legacy or impreza owners on here will know for sure .
  6. It certainly pins you from 3.5k till 7.5k ๐Ÿ˜œ First pull was 285hp so the drive home was much more fun with a smooth 332hp
  7. Unfortunately I don't know much about na engines , so can't really help . Fairly sure the ej22 comes in all 3 deck types pending on model and year . However if it is a closed deck 2.2 the block halves are worth ยฃ1k and above , so certainly worth whipping the heads off to find out . With turbo engine compatibility, it's mainly the inlet "phase " that determines which engine will be a straight swap . So if you can find out what phase you have, finding a replacement 20ltr that will fit your loom ,inlet and auxiliaries should be fairly easy. On turbo imprezas ... Coilpacks on each spark plug is phase 1 Single coilpack in the centre of the inlet is phase 1.5 . Single coilpack off set on the inlet is phase 2 . Bug 2000 onwards have phase 2 with top feed injectors.
  8. Well the actuator and time stopped play at 332.2hp at 1.4 bar ๐Ÿ™„. Well impressed with the turbo and with a stronger spring fitted , we're confident it will make more boost and power ๐Ÿ˜Ž. After fitting a weaker 0.6 bar spring mid map we found out I'd put too much pre tension on the actuator arm ,first time around which made it very difficult for the avcr to control boost . So hands up , it was my fault ๐Ÿค. Attowe did manage to control the boost fine up to 19 psi (just under 1.4bar) so the boost curve is much cleaner now than the previous graph . I will eventually fit a stronger spring but can't see the point in getting just that tweeked in, so will wait until the new year once the heads are fitted and get it all done at once . For now its running safely and pulls cleanly, for a big billet wheeled 20g it spools fairly good imo too . Right I've drunk all the milk ,so I'm off to take the scoob for a blatt... I mean get some more milk ๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. Had a issue with the actuator not holding boost and causing issues controlling it but I did bring a few spares n tools .... Its getting hot after all the part throttle pulls ,so spot of lunch and let it cool down a bit before tweaking for power๐Ÿ™„ He did do one pull at 19 psi and it seems that this turbo is gonna out perform the old one ๐Ÿคž full boost just after 4k, 332.2 hp at the flywheel and just over 290hp at the wheels . Seems to spool well for a 20g so far ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Unfortunately there's been a bit of confusion with what I've been booked in for , so there's not as much dyno time as we'd have liked . He still won't let me leave without it running safe but doubt he'll get chance to get the most outta the set up . It would be nice to leave with decent numbers but seeing as I've got different heads to fit , it's probably not worth spending his time and my money tweaking the current map too much atm . We'll soon see what a minor tweek brings anyways ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
  11. Tbh I've been running newage coilpacks for a long while and currently have a custom engine loom, so can't remember whether its dark at the front or back . Just know it's the same colour on each rear and on each front injector and coilpack
  12. I've decided I want to change the diameter and possibly route, of the turbo intake pipework . I'm fairly sure having the same dia pipe, as the stock turbo intake opening going from turbo to maf is restrictive. So with the map tweek on friday, I'll be happy with somewhere around the 359hp it was previously running on the aps sr40 (for now). I checked the levels and chucked a few spare sensors in the boot ,I'll leave the green label maf in until im ready to fit the v4sti heads . Then Increase the intake tract diameter and get the z32 tweeked in all at once . Hopefully everything goes well friday and I'll be back to having more than 1.2 bar in my life ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ˜Š spotted a few more pics of the old girl taken at the jap meet by a local photographer on f.b , so thought I'd chuck em on here too ๐Ÿ˜‰ At this rate it might actually be ready for the s.o.c stand for japshow finale at the pod at the end of this month ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  13. I'm not sure how to post a vid on here other than YouTube, tbh I doubt it would help . If it wasn't doing it before the headgasket change ? Compression test ,to rule out valves being open and double check timing Marks. As unless you've plugged coilpacks or injectors in wrong those would probably be the first things to check after rebuilding the top end
  14. I'd definitely start with a compression test (warm ideally) but as long as the figures are above 140 ish and all within 15% of each other , they're within factory spec afaik for a early classic. If it was limp mode or a timing issue I'd have thought you'd have a code but if its modded and "chipped " instead of mapped ?. I don't know if it would store a code or whether it's just a sensor reading something out of the maps parameters (then cutting ignition) . If test comes back good ... Does it rev freely in neutral or at cruise (part throttle) . You've definitely plugged the coilpacks and injectors the right way round on both banks ? Fairly sure its light grey plugs to both side of each bank are for the rear cylinders for injectors and coilpacks .
