Recommended Posts

Mod Edited and reviewed. Pics added and posts cleaned up - please keep on topic

Hi guys my name is Terry and i'm from sydney.

I just thought i would like toupdate you on my project which i been doing slowly for the past 2 years.

I am currently in the middle of building a datto with boxer engine.

mods are as follows;

ej20 bored 40tou with forged pistons.

celica 5 speedbox

toyota dyna clutch

front mount intercooler

vf34 turbo

120y booster 15/16 master cylinder

commodore calipers and ventilated discs from swr

subaru diff

n13 radiator

custom headers

3" exhaust.

Thats all i can think of at this stage except for alot of mods to get it all to fit.

I am currently waiting for the car to be painted.

For now here's the pics

how you go about mountin the motor? run into any challenging problems??

looks awesome man keep us updated..

It was difficult,but i got the engine bay pumped out so the motor would fit,starter motor wouldnt fit so i had to modify firewall to make it fit and the gearbox celica 5 speed with subaru bell housing and had to make up brackets for slave cylinder to work

the booster was chosen because of its size so everything would fit also thats why the 15/16 booster so there was no spongey brakes

Im interested in pics of the removable panels in the wheel arches.

The ones needed to get at the spark plugs.

Exactly what i was thinking baz ^

How are you planning on changing the plugs?

More power to you for trying something different.

What the platnium units which last 100,000kms, yeh thats a real issue.

The average performance based car on this site would be lucky to complete 5K a year, buts lets be generous and say 10k. Thats 10 years of use so even if he does have to pull the donk for plugs once every 10 years is pretty bear-able.

I'm keen to see the pics mate.

It's not exactly a walk in the park to change the plugs on an EJ20T equipped Liberty either - and Subaru obviously thought that was satisfactory......

In fact, Subarus tend to need hydraulic lifter work well before new spark plugs are needed - so by definition you have the engine out anywayz

I agree with GTR510 - copdat probably won't have to think about changing plugs in the life of the car!

I drove SX-510 mk1 (the green one) for 6 years and never changed the SR plugs (except for initially in 1997). Wouldn't surprise me that if 2 owners (and another 4 years) on from that if they are still in there!

Yeah right - I mean, I've never known of any high performance car to the foul plugs once in a while... never

well in that case he'd better to stick to a weber'd L to ensure plug access is possible for when does foul them up.

Whilst I cannot argue that the fouling of a set of plugs is impossible if he is using a standard ECU or at least at decent aftermarket (read non microleb) and non mentally retarded tuner (hard to find, I know) I'm sure this situation could be avoided.

The 2 litre suby donk as apposed to the 2.5 litre is definitely the way to go

thanks guys for your kind comments,as for the turbo fitting under the bonnet issue very well spotted,the bonnet is getting modified at the moment but still undecided about a scoop or a specially moulded bonnet to suit.but at this stage just swaying towards scoop so i can take it off after rego.

I guess you were deliberately goin for the cooler-out-front look?

ie - Rather than aiming the TB towards the DS headlight and modding (a 450 wide) cooler for in and out on the DS of the car and mounting it behind the grille?

Either way, really looking forward to seeing (and hearing) it on the road!
