  1. Spring is here and I'm tinkering with my 1989 XT6. It sat in the garage for the winter, with a trickle charger and a weekly startup. I recently did a complete reseal of the H6, timing belts, water and oil pump, etc. It runs like a top, starting right up and idling perfectly after a cold start. I let it warm up to the point the fan kicks in, cycling the cooling system. When I shut it down and restart it hot, the idle RPMs shoot up to 1,500 or so and stays there, something is convincing the ECU to do this I guess. I cleaned the IACV, MAF, throttle linkage and all the wiring to them. I get 3.2 volts at the CTS wiring plug (I replaced the original with an injector harness). The CTS seems bad, it's 30 years old! I read an open circuit between the two conductors, tested when warm and then hot. I will check again when cold and hot, but an open is bad when it's hot and should be talking to the ECU. I'll try a new CTS first, they're not expensive. Questions... Should I get a $15 aftermarket CTS, or the good old NOS Subaru CTS for $40? The original lasted 30 years, so I'm leaning towards NOS Subaru. Any other suggestions on this issue? I can drive the car all day after a cold start, idling at a stop around 750 RPMs but if I shut it down and restart it hot after a few minutes, the idle zips up to 1,500 and is reluctant to settle down. I could check for vacuum leaks, but figured if this caused the high idle, it would occur even with a cold start.
  2. I'm replacing the bent and corroded IACV pigtail terminals on my '89 XT6. I know someone here has repaired these things using aftermarket pigtails, other make/model pigtails, or knows the type of terminals I need to get the original done, it seems salvageable, check the pics and help please.

    EJ253 into 89 XT6

    Hey all. Just finding myself int he bowels of absurdity with the wiring in this XT6 project. IMG_2940 by Dans Subaru, on Flickr Engine, trans and Harness are from the same '01 Outback wagon 2.5. IMG_2945 by Dans Subaru, on Flickr I pulled the original XT6 wring bulkhead grommet and removed all the Engine, Cruise, Air suspension, and electric steering wiring form it. And then stuffed the few remaining needed wires (wipers) back through the larger of the 2 Outback harness grommets, and fitted it through the firewall. The second smaller grommet of the EJ harness I used a hole saw and punched through were the RHD steering column would go. IMG_2944 by Dans Subaru, on Flickr When I thinned the harness I left all the ECU, TCU, and Cruise wiring intact (some cruise wires had to be cut to remove and thin) All the ECU/TCU wiring and OBD II, Ig. and fuel relays etc. stayed together. It seemed to have worked well. So far I've only hooked up 2 wires (Batt power to relays, and IG switched power to ECU "on") Turn the key and both relays click, 12v+ present everywhere it's supposed to be at Cruise and TCU as well. relays and ECU/TCU/CCU all have ground from Intake manifold. So far all good signs. But it will be a relief to actually start it and drive. Only about 20~30 more wires to go! IMG_2943 by Dans Subaru, on Flickr
  4. Sorry if this is the wrong section, mods, please move as necessary... We currently had a bit of bad luck as 4 of our cars were hauled off of our property in Thronton, WA. We're guessing as scrap due to the pure junk status of one of them. And, as Thornton is in the middle of nowhere, they would have had to travel a bit to get off the radar. They disappeared around the 3rd or 4th of October. They were a gen 1 wagon, gen 2 Brat, gen 3 wagon and XT6. The XT6, in particular, is rather special and missed. Gen 3 wagon - no picture, but it's normal good shape, dark maroon with blue fender on driver's side Gen 1 wagon - it's in even worse shape from other angles and the rear rocker panels are blue Brat - has a maroon tail gate and hard to see, in the picture, but is gold/bronze (ugly) and has those zebra panel things on the doors XT6 - doesn't have roof racks, but the rest is current minus more dirt License plate: 108 ZDQ VIN: JF1 AX9429 LG300010
  5. Attention Subaru Gurus! Will these tensioners and idlers do the trick? I ordered Beck Arnley belts from CRock Auto, they sent 1 Beck Arnley belt and 1 Subaru OE belt that felt like an old dried up rubber band. Got a refund and ordered 2 Dayco and 2 Gates belts from trusted companies, to compare and choose the best. Any opinions? Here is what I have for tensioners and idlers: Subaru OE Tensioner 13070AA010 Passenger side Subaru OE Tensioner 13069AA000 Driver side Subaru OE Idler 13073AA000 Lower GMB Idler 460-8690 Upper Can I reuse the spring on the Passenger side tensioner? I'm resealing the whole engine, everything you experts have suggested thousands of times before. Rewiring the CTS with a new fuel injector pigtail, reworking all grounds, tweaking the tiny ignition switch screw (poor engineering) and connector under the dash, etc. I know this dead smelly horse is haunting you by now but you will satisfied to know I am not chopping this XT6 up, it will remain stock right down to the little 14" salad cutter wheels. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  6. So my xt6 has developed the Tick of Death. also my buddy is gonna give me his old td05-16g. im seriously considering putting that td05 on the er27, with turbo ea82 rods, pistons, valve's and valve springs, i can find these pretty cheap at my local wreckers. also seen a HEI distributor conversion, witch will probably happen since no1 has made the turbo/xt6 distributor pick-up work with megasquirt, and i know the hei will. anyone know if there are aftermarket head bolts, or any bottom end bolts available for the ea82 or er27?(same just 1.5x as many on the er27) or if they ea82 turbos use different head bolts? a good company that can make a custom MLS head gasket? how much power the stock turbo ea82 rods and pistons can handle? im hoping i can do 15-18 psi and somewere around 250-300 at the flywheel. o and maybe a uprated clutch that'll fit the xt6 input shaft? or is it worth trying to find a rx trans? i wont give up 4wd or awd, lol.
  7. I am new here. I've owned several Subarus, including an '84 Brat, '85 GL, '06 and '07 Impreza sedans. I gave the '07 to my 18 year old son and miss it already. I currently own a 2017 Legacy and just picked up this amazingly clean '89 XT6. Mechanically it is great, with 161k miles on the sweet sounding 2.7L H6.
  8. Hey guys, I am looking to replace my engine mounts while the engine is removed for re-sealing. Stock XT6 mounts are long NLA, but I have seen some references to using Group N mounts. Can anyone confirm for me which ones work and if they are plug-and-play? I had a Group N transmission mount in my '03 Legacy and loved it. If I can use the Group N trans and motor mounts in my XT6, a link to specific part numbers / models to use would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff
  9. I'm wondering what the spline count is on the front differential stub shafts of an XT6 transmission. Will EA81 axles slide right on, or do I need to swap out the stub shafts for EA81 parts?
  10. Hey y'all, about to do a EJ22 swap into my Loyale,with the EA82 transmission. I have the re-drilled EA82 flywheel and i'm going to use the XT6 pressure plate and clutch disk(Correct?) my question is whether i should use the XT6 release bearing or an EA82 one?
  11. My 88' XT6 has these problems; - battery shows good voltage with tester, but dash shows lower voltage, I cleaned all contacts. - alternator gets really hot fast. - belt squeals every time when starting, the belt tensioner is stripped, where can I get a new one? - fan relays are all messed up, I have to put a fuse in the relay socket to jump the fan to run and pull the fuse out when I park. - air vents will not switch. - Tachometer sometimes is way off too high. - cybrid steering is shitty at low rpm, could that be the brushes in the motor, or low current from the alternator, belt also squeals when taking slow tight turns sometimes. any gurus with advice out there? I'm in the PNW anyone local?
  12. I downloaded the manual and have searched the forums. I am still confused? Any tips? when I bought the car, they told me to pop the hood and remove the relay to turn the fan off and on? I messed with swapping some relays and thought I fixed it, but found my battery drained and a very hot relay? WTF? something grounding out? also need some advice on how to get the vents working again, seems to be no vacuum? Your wisdom and experience is requested and appreciated.
  13. I have alot of parts for the 86,87,88 subaru xt coupe. Should fit the XT6 also. I want these out of my basement. I have stored them many years, tried to sell them on here before. I would like someone to buy these as a lot. I will separate the smaller items but do not want to ship the hood, deck lid, dashboard or seats. The items are in NH. Let me know what you want and shot me a price. Here is a partial list. hood with turbo scoop rear deck lid front and rear seats door panels, front and rear center console drive shaft (4wd) door glass seat belt motors (retractable) both sides innner rear window panels, around glass too upper door glass seals headliner dash board, no cracks lower seat belts spare tire with cover rear tail lights with center section, center section has very small crack window motor and tracks, both sides visors defroster vent door threshold, both sides vanity light third brake light side mirrors passive belt control unit module ECU A11-000-R06 power window relay cont. unit h/low module distributor trip computer front kick panels heat ducts wiper switch steering lift handle rear view mirror moon roof and seal I believe I have the starter, will have to verify. bunch of relays rebuilt turbo EA82 motor most likely a couple more items. I do NOT have doors, fenders, motor, bumpers, wheels, exhaust or front axles. Email me at fdgwolfeboro@hotmail.com or call me at 603-715-5670. Remember I want to get these out of the basement and would love someone to buy the whole package.
  14. Any one have any leads or a pair of XT6 front springs?? Im trying to put them under an 82 gl with new struts to get a little bit of drop and stiffer spring rate. This should work right?? Any help/tips are much appreciated! thanks all!
  15. I'm trying to sell my 1998 XT6 it has 117,000 miles on it manual transmission and hasn't been driven in years.We parked it because it smoked, and had problems accelerating. I don't really know what these cars are worth and I'm not sure if I should just scrap it or try to fix it and sell it but the thing is it could be very hard to sell because not many people are looking to buy an 88 XT6.So I guess what I'm asking is if I should scrap it or fix it and how hard it would be to sell once its fixed. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
  16. Hey there fellow subaru lovers. ive recently started a fan page on facebook for Old Gen subarus. (it says NW but honestly we love em all!) im not really trying to post to get more likes as much as i am looking for great Old gen subaru pictures. I see amazing ones day in and day out on here and i want to use them all but i would also like to give credit to those who have made it great. i ve added a few that i absolutely couldnt help myself but id like to get more! anyone who would like to have their old gen subarus plastered on the internet with us all drooling over it either add them on this thread. send them to my email ( elliottdevon@ymail.com ) And Or go and put it on the page and like the page. https://www.facebook.com/nwoldgensubarus ALSO we have been trying to get together a meet for Old Gens in the nw most likely in the oregon area. we have a separate thread on here if you are interested. but we will likely be adding it as an event on the facebook. http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/142570-like-to-get-an-old-gen-meet-going-in-the-oregon-area/ Thanks all! hope to hear from you soon!
  17. So, I'm upgrading my xt6. it's looking like I'm going to be adding about 100hp. I'm trying to keep the Air-ride system that came stock on the vehicle, so I'm splicing differential internals and such in an attempt to keep my stock axles and such. Now, I'm not a mechanic by any means, so I really don't know much about CV joints and differential internals. So I'm curious about the durability of CV joints when put under "above-stock" stress. Should it be as simple as replacing the CV joints with new OEM XT6 joints, re-booting them and then running them like that? Should I look at keeping the stock axles but using different CV joints? and then is this even an option? I know that the XT6 has virtually no after market support, so I know that whatever I look at doing would require a bit of research to make a custom application work, but once again, only if it's even an option. Now on to differentials. I've picked up internals for a 4.44 mechanical rear LSD but I didn't grab the Pumpkin for this differential as shipping would become atrocious, and also because I'm hoping to swap the internals into the casing that came stock on my '89 xt6 (it was a 3.9 factory LSD) this way I should still be able to use stock axles. Anyway, can anyone comment on the feasibility of such a swap? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Xt6 swap help needed

    So, I can't get a definitive answer about what i'll need for a crossmember to drop my ej22t into my xt6. I was told an ea82t crossmember would be workable and i've gotten conflicting info there stating that the xt crossmember won't bolt up to the mount holes in the 6... anyone here done the swap before?
  19. I'm finally getting a move on with my swap project. I've decided to use the FT4WD 5spd transmission from my current xt6 with an adaptor plate and redrilled flywheel (courtesy of SJR). BUT, are there any upgrades that I should do/ that are even available for the xt6 clutch? I'm worried that the stock xt6 clutch may not be able to handle the extra HP/torque of the ez30. I've been on Ebay, and I've noticed that you can get stage 1-2-3 clutch kits for/that fit the xt6, but I have no idea if they're a quality product, or if they will even help. I'm also still not sure what each "stage" means either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
