joel's eg33 legacy build
so the svx lives now and runs great. the fuel pump was shit but i bypassed it with a pressurized canister set up and it fire right up. yay for that. so on with the build.

goals for this build will be to build a nationally competetive auto-x car, an occaisional rally-x car and and all around good performance vehicle. i would like to be able to keep up with the m3's that are local to my auto-x region.

the ej25 is a decent engine but i have always felt (from day one) that it just doesn't have the guts to really be in the legacy. and just like everyone else, i too had planned on an ej-something turbo swap. but then i saw akmed's gc8 over at dirty impreza. totally changed my mind. with that kind of build, we are talking skyline material. this made me very interested. and after much dismay in trying to obtain an eg33 i finally scored an entire svx for $400. it did not run and trans is shot. towed it 120 miles home and had it running in 10 mins. so now that i know the engine is good and all the electronics work properly, its clobbering time.

day one pull the engine and harness from the svx.

This is going to be good. I'm a bit jealous, I have to admit. :)

Yay! I can't wait to see the end result.

joelwatts 04-30-2012 12:00 PM

i dont know if there will ever be an end result. just when i cant figure out what to do next.

eekay 04-30-2012 12:02 PM

Haha. Very true.

Hey I found those nissan injectors, if you ever go turbo that is.

370cc nissan injectors
Cheapest I've found yet, other places I found them are about 150 per injector.

They don't make anything larger than 555cc's? Seems strange. What if you wanted to run E85?

joelwatts 04-30-2012 01:32 PM

Not that I've found. 555 is the largest direct fit.

So, you're pretty much hosed on the E85 then. :( That kinda sucks.

joelwatts 04-30-2012 03:35 PM

as far as i know. you can go custom on the rails to adapt whatever injector you want. i've thought about this for future purposes. bumping up to an 850cc or so just for e85 but currently i cant see the cost < effective gain right now. so, i'll leave that up to a future date.

I am sure you can send the injectors off to have them enlarged to what ever you want. I bet on e85 you will need something in the 1000+cc range.

Good luck with the build!
