Put a properly rebuilt Hitachi on the Brat, hooked up the lines and fired it up. Adjusted the idle and took it for a ride. Runs great, smooth and good power. Doesn't seem rich, should pass smog, fingers crossed. A positive day with the ole Brat for a change.

^^^^^ Is that a 110v electric heater where your stereo is supposed go?!?

 

Yup! Works great too. Haven't got around to pulling the heater core or flushing it out to get a little heat. Just enough out of the stock heater to barely defrost the window.

My new rear wagon lift supports are the wrong ones i think :banghead:

 

They gave me Mighty Lift d95720. They have the right end for one but for the other thay have a ball type seating... Anyone else have this issue? Let me check the Autozone website to see if it was the right part number.

You have a phase2 engine, and can't swap your old ej22 in.

There's a chance though it didn't bend valves, I know someone with a 99 that survived a broken belt.

That doesnt seem to be the case with this. It had a ball socket end for one side that cant be removed and theres not a ball in sight for it to attached too.

Look for a '95 EJ22. It'll be Duel-port and won't be Interference.

His is a 99 though. Which means it's a phase2 ej22. Just like the phase 2 ej25 it has a MAP, different wiring, etc. The intake (I've been told) from a phase2 ej22 won't bolt to a phase1 one. I'd love it if it would... but that's how it be.

Hmm, interesting. I will have to look into that. From what I have seen on 2nd Gen Legacys in the Junkyard, the plugs and bellhousing looks the same, only thing I seen a being a little different is the Air intake styling, but the sensors look to be in the same place. Anyone else have some info about this?

Somewhere in 98 they changed to the phase2 ej22. Some 97 imprezas may have been phase2, I don't really know... But I do know the 99 Legacy has a phase2 in it.
