Started prepping the impreza:

Ripped out the AC:




Pulled the condensor and took measurements for the radiator:





Pulled the last (and dirtiest) of the accessories off of the SVX:


and started to clean the motor:
(yes, I know simple green and aluminum don't mix, do not care, as it's the only thing that's been working to get this power steering fluid off of EVERYTHING)

This was the drying stage after simple green/scrub/hose it down:

ha. ej22 is weaksauce unless it's a turbo hybrid, and even then it's weaksauce with a little less weak and more sauce.

Yeah, no effect. The AC compressor didn't have a belt on it to begin with, and hasn't been hooked up since I swapped the interior like 4 years ago. It's just been dead weight.

And you're right, EJ22's aren't terrible, they just wish they'd put things up and put them down more to become 3.3's

Just figured out why people have cooling problems.

Stock SVX radiator:
30.5 x 17.25 x 1.25 in.
(657ish cubic inches)

Saab turbo radiator:
19.4 x 13.6 x 1.6
(428 cubic inches)

Nissan Sentra radiator:
23.25 x 13.31 x 1
(309 cubic inches)

Jeep Cherokee radiator:
31 x 10.31 x 1.25 in
(399 cubic inches)

Scirroco:
21.5 x 13.2 x 3
(851.4 cubic inches)
(but the bottom outlet is on the wrong side, so I'll need a crossover pipe)

May have to go custom...

hmm... and what about those of us running a griffin 30x15.5 dual row.

I think most of the cooling issues are due to the damn water pump housing, which has been tested to death. . . speaking of TGF still waiting on a spare housing up here .

This was the impreza for sale a while back that I kept trying to buy lol. I had no idea that you were on here. I live in Belleville and have been struggling to find much of a Subaru scene since I got out of the army. Do you guys ever meet up?

Lol, yeah I had it up for sale when I was still buying a BRZ!

There are a few occational meet-ups. Most of them get posted on MIsubie.com. I know there's a meet in the parking lot of the 777 building every Saturday (over by the Wendys) but it's mostly riced-out grand prixs and the like. Though there are the occational scoobies that stop by. Also the Xceedspeed BBQ's bring out a pretty big crowd. If you wanna hand out sometime PM me and I'll shoot you my #.
