Did you have any issues with the radiator mounting or hook up?
Did you just add an in-line high psi fuel pump for the FI?

Used existing radiator... modified with tripple core and inlets were made larger and bent in the appropriate directions.
"Did you just add an in-line high psi fuel pump for the FI?"
Yes i used a high pressure fuel pump and from there to the engine, high pressure fuel lines were used.
I should have a site up soon outlining the conversion.

Jet cutting isnt too cheap but considering the month of Sundays cutting one of these adapters by handwould require... it is probably well worth it. I cant get an accurate quote without a file to quote from but I'd be happy to do the digitising and arrange a quote for nix. There also may be some advantage in economies of scale. If I work out the best way to lay them out on the sheet, it may be possible to cut lots from the one blank. If any of you guys want to try and swing a semi-commerical sort of deal, just give me a shout.
If there are any other brackets and doo-dads you may require in ally or steel then by all means ask. Just be aware it sometimes isnt cheap unless you are cutting lots of the said item. Mind you, the finish is perhaps better than factory stamped components when its done well. Not to mention I can punch weight saving from them, add a simple logo even..
Just let me know !

This is sweet.. Almost cool enough to put lift plans on hold for another year but not quite..There are a few people up here that would skin me alive!
First in line!

I can use the shop I work at to cut it, that's no bother.
I would love a water jet cut adapter plate too.

The web site will also include mods like fitting air adjustable suspension to the rear end of MY subies and other stuff... I have lots of photos i will be adding that can be downloaded in high resolution.
The pics alone are enough to give most people the idea of how to do things.
With the pics i will have written explanations including part numbers of parts i had to by and references to extra information in Subaru manuals.
This web site wil also be very handy for people doing the same conversion to L-series subarus... the methods used are similar.
For anyone that is interested i have a few new photos of my subi playing about in the mud... they can be seen at.. http://community.web...183363690FESBfg
Site should be up in about a month.. possibly less... i will post when complete.

I was thinking of putting a EJ22 into my RX. I'll need to do more research, anyone know if the engine crossmembers on EA81's and EA82's are the same?

As some of you know i have a 1983 Subaru Hatch which is rather rare in Australia due to hatches never being released here.

after you have a working pattern get yourself some 1/2'' steel or aluminum and cut it out
1/2 inch is not quite 12mm Ballitch.
I would skim the extra 1/2 mm off at the end with a belt sander or thicknesser.
Too much to go wrong by just 'rounding up to 1/2 inch'.
These are METRIC cars dude!
Get with it, the rest of the world has.

I have my XT6 flywheel at a machine shop - I found someone to mill out the holes to match the EJ22 crank for $40-$50 ... one shop quoted me $180 - I waited until I had politely thanked them and hung up before laughing.
you use aluminum you have to cut it with plasma cutter, and nothing else. if oyu dont, your adapter plate will warp because of the heat from a torch or acytelene cutter.
