95 Coupe, 95 Sedan & 95 Wagon
Yeah, honestly the whole engine appears to be covered in a film of engine oil.. I don't think the guy who did the swap liked to tighten fasteners.. pretty much everything was snug, but it certainly wasn't tight. I'm secretly hoping it has a burnt valve, I'm pretty sure we can pick up a replacement EJ205 long block pretty cheap and swap it in over a weekend. It will also give us the opportunity to tidy up some of the mess in the engine bay.. Perrin catch can and hoses, electrical wiring and connectors.. Just pretty it up a bit. Might even swap in a Long Runner manifold and an Ebay FMIC.. Shhh.. Don't tell the wife!May need to replace the seals on the spark plugs, valve covers while you're at it.
Compression test on Saturday. Should hopefully confirm or deny what I suspect.I'm eying the threads on #1 vs the others. Has oil? Others dry... Also does not look to be having spark as you hinted.
Its a stock location setup, but it's a GC fitment down pipe, with a modified Blitz NUR spec Mid pipe, so it mates up to the BNM Fab Down pipe with a V Band flange.Nice, looks like a rotated setup? Very excite! I believe the TD04's need a quality set of circlip pliers, most aftermarket that I've seen just have bolts on the back sides of the housings.
