Spot on. Haha...Yah, they have my winterforces mounted and get weird looks from adults and make kids smile.

Thanx for all the encouragement guys! I seriously could not have done this swap without the support and help from members of this community.

Okay, delayed but....Autocross pics from this past summer...








I found myself very outclassed in SM with my basically stock EJ20G. I was still somewhat competitive however, and would typically finish middle of the pack.

I just changed up my winter setup so Ill to post of some pics of that soon.

Also, Sno Drift Rally in 2 weeks...My RS will be making the pilgrimage.

Alright, So I realized I never posted some of the finished pics from my swap. These are almost a year old now, but for consistency with my journal Ill post them now.

Dash Apart


Cluster wiring


Wiring splices at the ECU


Where the wiring was run through the drivers side fender grommet


Engine harness run through fender


I had to move the alarm speaker because the intake got in the way of where it was before. I bolted it to the passenger side strut tower


Detail of how I ran the coolant lines from the header tank to the overflow. I ended up ditching this setup after the header tank broke. I now just run a hose from the crossover pipe to the turbo (Ala Supermoose style).



And finally a "finished" engine bay shot. It has changed slightly since then.
