Subaru strip and clean

  1. A quick 45 minutes tonight stripping down this Ej20, I'm pretty sure they leave the factory this dirty, I've never seen a clean one come out of car. This has only done 89k and was well looked after. It's clean on the right places, the coolant pipe and chambers are mint as are the inlets.

  2. What’s the plan?
  3. Clean, paint satin black with yellow highlights. Timing belt, water pump , oil seals etc reverse inlet manifold, relocate alternator, fit into a bay window

  13. You won’t be disappointed. Are you having usual 2.0 setup?

    Same build type as Matt & mine?
  14. Wow, that's some timing belt!
  15. Yes, except. Mine is a 2.5

  17. So if you didn’t take it out of the car what did I you do about the loom and how are you going to match it ?
  18. I got this engine form @Kruger, he has the same affliction as me and can't say no to a subaru. He pulled the engine and loom complete.

    I only buy from reputable sources where i know the loom will have been pulled correctly, so me, kruger or Nick Tune who does the actual loom conversion.[​IMG]

    Yep, 2.0, it'll be fine for my needs, for touring more than anything, such as Wales, Scotland etc
