Should be fun!

I hope you still plan on adding radiator exhaust holes in the front trunk, those vents won't work alone that you have for the hood.

Nice! Looks like Frank has mastered posting pics! Another 3.3 conversion will be cool. I'm about to go take a lap in mine in the cool air.

A "cradle" would have to be custom made because it's tough to work it around the exhaust system. Pretty much the only Subaru engine I've seen that has that issue. I can send you some pics of my engine mount setup. Bigkat made it. Mine is an early -4 mount up front with some L shaped angled pieces welded to it and trans hangers at the back. The middle is wide open. Key is you have to have a really good welder attach the additional pieces and they have to be VERY strong metal. Most of the weight of the engine is up front. Mine's been hanging in there for 3 years.

You have stainless lines from Tangerine Racing? You can use rubber (or whatever it's made of) fuel injection hose to connect to the tank. That looks like a later car so both lines should be the same size. 8mm, so I think that's 5/16 at the local auto parts store. Just make sure it's HIGH PRESSURE fuel hose.

Unless you bought the ones with the screw-type AN fittings on the ends? If so post pics of what you have and where you got it.

That's it? Just the tank fittings? No tunnel lines or anything? One is stock, the other is an -AN fitting. Really should go one way or the other. Let us know and we'll go from there.

Pm Bruce Stone (Bdstone) to get the correct fitting. Rotary914 has the washers. So your going to run the pump exposed? Walbro? Some of the Suby stock pumps are Walbro.

I'm curious about the 300HP, not sure how an EG will get you there in a stock form. Now if you do a few tricks, proper headers, cams, E85, boost (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) then we get closer to 300. The last one will get you well above 300.

That being said I have tabled my power plans to blow the EG. I was going to run a blower an E85. After this weekend and not finding E85 on the roads around Okteenerfest. I really don't want to haul around a truck bed full of E85 just to be able to go (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

So if you got a way of getting 300+ HP, I will be (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)



Even if you don't I'll be (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

Another EG33 build (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
