Sammy, a guy i didnt get his name and Dewey at Six Star Motorsports hav convinced me on an EZ30D swap instead. thier doing one on Sammy So's GC and im going to follow in their footsteps...besides their plans to turbo the hell out of it lol
ive heard its actually not too difficult. im just going to have to buy a piece of steel, or maybe find a piece of scrap from work that we can manipulate and weld up. oh yea and i have a buddy from the local suby community thats more than happy to let me use his shop and his tools, hes got a MIG welder too. im gonna try and plan it out for a weekend, because thats what he said he could work with the best.
yea i dont plan on doing anything until i hav everything planned out and ready. the EG33 swap is said, by the people that have done one that ive talked to, to be easier than a WRX swap and it should be able to be done at about $3000. im still figuring out the OBD issue tho. starting to run into issues with that, cause i need to pass emissions in August. i could just keep my EJ until then, but id need to buy a whole new exhaust system.
decided to sit down and just read the whole "the BEST ever H6 swap thread". i read that i can use an OBDI engine and run an OBDII harness and ECU on it. the only difference is that the OBDII harness has 2 extra plugs for an external EGR solenoid and External baro sensor. id just need to get those 2 things and install them into a vacuum line and i would be good to go. after emissions, i would probably just buy another OBDI ECU to install because a guy ive been talking to told me that the OBDI ECU's with a chip make wicked N/A power. a total guestimate, but with cams, port and polished heads, nice custom exhaust and i MIGHT be able to push a little over 300AWHP. idk tho, we'll see when it happens lol
heya chuck. im ready to start planning an EG33 swap. ive sent out messages to a couple of guys locally to ask if they could help me out with physically doing the swap and wanted to ask if you might be able to help out too?
i decided to save the gas for the new job =(. i'll try and get to the summer meet if you host one again. hopefully my car will have undergone repairs by then too haha. mine would have been the REALLY ugly duckling in those photo's i saw anyways lol
