Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

Updates? I also need to update a box with some contents and send it your way - I found the first piece in the shed last week, I haven't found the second one yet. I'll get that first one on it's way though! Cheers Bennie Car is going really well, no issues at all. The power gives me a big grin every...

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

*UPDATE* Exhaust rear section done today, the car is nice and quiet now, especially on the freeway. 3" stainless over the diff. Took a bit of effort to fit a muffler and pipe up there, but it worked out (pics to follow). Took it for a good long run after the exhaust went on, with Torque monitoring ...

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

Good work L-Rex! With the L series pump, you should be able to reference the tacho wire from the ecu to trigger the revolution relay. Then it will work as it should and happy days - plus it keeps the factory safety factor in your conversion. I would’ve thought a hard wired fuel pump that runs all t...

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

Just about finished! Got quite a few detail things sorted today; The flywheel was occasionally touching the dust cover, because it was sitting slightly on the crossmember. Spaced it up by 6mm with some stainless steel shims. The VSS wire from the L speedo has now been connected for the ECU and cruis...

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

I mounted the fuel pump relay, main relay, the (large-heatsinked) fuel pump controller, fuse box and WAIC relay behind the glovebox. The OEM immobiliser controller, cruise control module, 2 x ECU power relays, and the (large) complete ignition barrel went above the column. There was literally no oth...

Re: Largest 14" tyres on standard L

My current understanding is 185/75-14, possibly 195/70-14, but I can't confirm this.

Would be nice to hear from someone who has fitted these...

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

IT'S ALIVE 8) Got all the wiring done, but have a few detail items to finish. I have to splice the VSS wire from the L speedo into the WRX loom, and I have 2 wires on the WRX speed sensor plug to choose from. 1 goes to the cruise control, and the other "might" go to the ECU. Still thinking about tha...

Largest 14" tyres on standard L

I'm going to fit a set of 14" Infinity (Scorpion) rims to my L. For those that are running standard suspension height, what's the largest size 14" tyre you have run, with no rubbing (and no guard mods)?

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

I'm splicing the tach dash into the L non-tach loom, and then the WRX loom into the L, as is normally done.

The Parker switch had me going for a moment as well :lol:

Re: WRX EJ20 Turbo into L-Series Wagon

Got the tacho dash wired in. Bit of stuffing around with power, grounds and the 2 high beam wires, but everything works ok. Still have to test the tacho function when the engine is running. Tip:; if the indicator don't work after the conversion, don't spend a couple of hours chasing wires, just plug...

Re: Revs and revs till stalls, what could it be?

Get the coolant issue sorted, then start setting up the carb. You want to have it a full operating temp so you can adjust it. It also sounds like you may have an air leak in the pipework or manifold.
