New year, new build...v.3.0...R?


Recommended Posts

Build 1.0

 

Build 2.0

 

The never ending quest for doing something unique and better has led me to this. I really love the EJ, but I'm moving on. A 6 cylinder friend showed up from Japan this last week.

 

Build 3.0

 

EZ30R

Machine work by Metric Motors in Centerville, Utah

Pinned cylinders

Outfront 9.7:1 pistons

Pauter X-beam rods

King main and rod bearings

Outfront ARP head stud kit

Suptertech valve springs and titanium retainers

Hydra EMS

ID1050X injectors

Custom exhaust manifold

Probably have to add a 2nd fuel pump

Xona Rotor 9567 95 lb/min turbo

 

Looking to make 600-800 whp.

 

Wish me luck :spin:

Got the 4 cylinder torn down and ready to sell. Now that's it's off the engine stand I started tearing down the EZ.

 

I was really surprised how clean the engine was. It had an OEM oil filter. I'm really excited about no tumblers. The fuel injectors go right into the head. The manifold seals to the heads with o-rings and that's it. Makes me so happy.

 

The variable lift system is really cool. I would like to ditch it for reliability reasons, but I'm going to run it and see how well it works.

 

I found a great deal on the turbo I want. I wasn't planning on getting a larger turbo for a bit, but I just couldn't pass it up. It should be here in a week or so.

 

Waiting to hear back from Outfront on their rods. They said they should have some in any day now.

The 3.0R is truly a sweet engine. I would aim to get 350-400Hp out of it.

 

Very surprised Subaru didn't take it further and add a Turbo, easy and reliable power all day long.

Cant speak for the OP, but the 3.0R is a smother more rev happy motor. Although it does not have AVCS on the exhaust, it does have the AVLS i mentioned above, which the 3.6 does not. this makes it a better platform for boost a high RPMs, at least in my mind.

Patiently awaiting results and simultaneously heart broken because something like this cannot come to life in Camifornia.

 

I really feel bad for you guys, especially with the new exhaust law. Here isn't much better though. We do have annual emissions testing we have to pass.

 

I'm excited to see this moving along! Stock crankshaft? What bearings? King makes a set for the EZ30: http://www.king-catalog.com/Catalog/Set/MB7772XP

 

Yeah, stock crank. From what I've read they hold up well. Nice to know there are quality bearings available. May have to have the machine shop use them.

 

so, why 3.0 and not 3.6L? Is it because there are more readily available aftermarket parts?

 

Yes.

Turbo showed up. Sometimes I wonder if there is something wrong with me when things like this seem reasonable.

 

Xona Rotor 9567 with Tial 1.03 turbine housing. Found it used on ebay from Real Street Performance. They said it only had 10 dyno passes for testing. This setup new would have cost $2400, but I picked it up for $1800.

 

This is the tightest turbo I have ever handled. There is absolutely zero play in the shaft. New ball bearing Garretts have a little bit of play. This one is tight.

 

It's a big boy. Capable of over 900 whp. Precision nomenclature it would be a 6767. Garrett it would be a GT3794R. Borg Warner EFR would be 9472.

 

Am I sane?

That is a beautiful looking piece. Why book a trip to visit Kona when you can bring Xona to you? Seems sane to me!

  • 2 weeks later...

Things have been sort of slow moving. Got two weeks more to wait for rods and valve springs.

 

Decided to pin the cylinders in the block myself. A coworker and I were talking about it and figured it can't be too hard. We have a mill and lathe, so I decided I'd give it a shot on a broken EJ25 case I have. Just need to turn down some aluminum rod I bought and press the pins in.

 

Once I get the block pinned I can take it to Metric Motors and they'll measure it and let me know what size pistons to order.

Thats an open deck block. Its no good for high power.

 

Not sure why you would bother to pin the head. I have thought about pinning intake and exhaust manifolds so they line up perfectly after port matching to the gaskets to improve flow but never the head. Even then it would be weak alloy tube that could deform if need be due to different thermal expansion.

I think you misunderstand what pinning is. I'm going to be inserting aluminum dowels between the top of the cylinders and the block, turning that open deck into a semi closed deck.

 

No one knows how much power the stock case will hold. No ones's used one to make a lot of power that I know of. They either close the deck or get it sleeved. Something else to consider is that the cylinders don't protrude out of the block very far. So, just because it's open deck doesn't mean it's necessarily weak.
