been nearly 5 years for this post.
Still have the same car. now registered as antique.
Alot of work since then, but I'll add facts on the engine. Engine #3..
The engine is extremely rare, from a 1985 subaru RX. A 1 in 1500 on the production. Upon my own experience of 17 years non-stop.. I built my version of an EA82, using the best of everything from a 1985 to 1994.
multiport turbo heads
sodium filled valves removed for loyale version
simply cleaned up
new valve seals
these heads do indeed have a liner added to the coolant side to be tougher.
loyale shortblock, healthy.
loyale cams, turbo casings (fat bottom bearings)
intake and cam casings baked with silica based paint.
compression is near 10 to 1.
fuel is summit 140gpg, full return, pressure regulated, 43mm rochester carb.
exhaust is equal header, alot of stainless. no smaller than 2 inch.
clutch is spec stage 1 - this car would not take off with factory clutch.
15 inch peugeot wheels 205/60/15 bf goodrich
ignition is msd 6530 with map sensor, 8,8 mm wires, and subaru optical.
cooling is brass copper CSF radiator, exact fit for this generation (not easy to find)
nissan 90 amp alternator, direct fit.
I built this in january, has not had a proper burn in yet. Awaiting warmer weather. Without surprise, it simply sounds like the first of the EJ series engines in the early 90s..with a little more hummingbird at idle.
All lights are LED... alot of things not mentioned.
congrats on the drive episode, attention deserved.
