A friend just called.

I tried search but "JDM" is too short. And "JDM swap" brought up a bunch of swap stuff but nothing about JDM and I got tired after 6 pages of finding no relevant threats.

The customer apparently had a JDM engine delivered. He's planning on swapping intakes and drilling for EGR.

I was trying to find out what other issues he's going to run into.

I swear this is discussed somewhat often but can't find the info now that I need it.

Anyone know al the likely issues getting this JDM DOHC NON egr to work on a 96 Outback auto? Or a good thread or two?

Drill EGR and use USDM manifold. Should be fine. I've done a bunch of them and never had an issue.

Any insight on EGR drilling?

Personally I make sure I get an EGR engine so I've never needed to do it.

Also would you recommend HG's while it's on the stand? Since they all say they have under 50k on them?
