My EJ22T swap.......and a few issues

Recommended Posts

Hey, on a side note, does your ecm have a built in map sensor? Mine does, which I thought would be for a turbo model, but my brother has a turbo 1.8 and a turbo 2.2 and neither one has a map sensor.

 

Im pretty sure thats not a MAP sensor.

(manifold absolute pressure sensor)

But a BARO sensor.

(barometric pressure sensor)

 

A map would have to have a vacuum hose coming from the manifold and plugged into the ECU.

 

I have never seen a stock subaru with a vacuum line, however i have seen them with a hole that looks like a BARO sensor.

Thus my confusion, this is a 4 bar map sensor, with vacume line, which i plugged in to the manifold.

Looks great! I have a replacement trans I need to get scrubbed up but you're obviously more qualified to do so than I am.. come on over when you're done!

:grin:

 

 

 

What'd you use, kerosene?

Sure, I only charge $20hr and my choice of beer.

 

I use the purple cleaner you can buy at the auto stores. Then rinse with water and finish off with the wire wheel and a quick spray of clearcoat.

Yeah, that would be a loooong drive :eek:

As much as I have to tear into this car, I want it clean when I do.

I dont like reaching in to do something and pull my hand out all black and slimy.

I dont want to be halfway to Cashmere and have it go out on me :-\

And if something does happen, I will have time to fix it before the Show.

Well, I've been at it again (cleaning).

I figured since I had the DP out, I was going to gut the cat.

And of course, I had to polish the sucker :rolleyes:

Oh snap....

 

Noticed this when I was re-installing my trans.

Had a diff core laying around with a good bushing, so it was replaced.

And while I had the diff out replacing that, do you think I stuffed it back up there looking like this?

I messed up and forgot to take after pic :rolleyes:

I'll have to crawl under and take a pic sometime.

 

Well, after driving it almost a week all I can say is wow....what a difference.

This trans is a lot smoother and since gutting my DP the turbo spools up much quicker and I gained at least 10hp.

You can ask Russ what he thinks of it, he had a good ride in it today ;)
