Oh yeah she is fully burped. I'm having an issue with my temp gauge though. Shows halfway on a cold wisconsin morning. I believe that is reporting wrong. I let the engine run for a good 30mins no check engine lights and everything was fine.

I just need to bleed my clutch now. We tried for a good 30mins and it just didn't feel right. A friend is bringing a power bleeder this week and we are going to try again.

Once the clutch is bled properly I can drive the vehicle. There are a few things I need to work out like the interior and a filter for my intake but nothing major anymore. Super excited to see what this ej20k can do.

Hmm just got a boost gauge hooked up. Only hitting 10psi right now. Think I need a new boost controller? or is that typical for a ej20k stock

Ok guys only hitting 10psi of boost .. do I have this hooked up right - as mentioned in another thread. I don't see a boost pill in one of the hoses.

Hooked mine up like this and now my car is boosting properly. Still need to put the boost pill in though.

Nice write up man. Definitely appreciate it since i will be doing the ej20k swap soon. Unlike you, not so brave to be doing this outside with this weather plus also my daily driver so need to source a harness for 93 impreza L since i cant afford the down time for the merge.

And the pin outs for the 98 2.5 rs cluster?
