Hi

I have only just registered. Have had my converted van running for about three weeks. It has an Ej25 '96 DOHC hooked up to a Renault UN1 tranaxle with WRX pull clutch and Delorean 235mm clutch plate. So my van now has a 3.88diff instead of about 4.6.
I could not find a wiring diagram for the ecu that came with engine so I bought a Megasquirt kit to build and tune myself.
The result is a very torquey unit to drive and should tour nicely.
Only one problem. Has anyone experienced loss of oil pressure either uphill or quick acceleration? I think I need to modify the oil pickup and sump.

What sort of pressures are you seeing out of that engine?

I only have the idiot light and even bigger idiot buzzer in the dash.
Perhaps I'll fit a guage and check whats really goin on.

That'd probably be a good idea.

How do you currently have the oil pickup configured? Is it stock? Are you using the stock subaru oil pan?

There is a new oil pan design that has a secondary set of baffles. You can see the difference in these pics

It is unusual to loose oil pressure, even with a shortened oil pan. Even guys off-roading in synchros don't complain about that. Does the pan have any baffles at all?
