I love my girls with a fat a$$ (IMG:style_emoticons/default/KMA.gif) lol

I enjoy art so I was having a pow wow to myself in the garage and pick up a pencil lol (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) have yet to finish



So my first thought was to go with a jdm ej20 forged pistons bigger injectors the works but with a stock td04 I was going for reliability for trips and driving around town run low boost 8-10 psi a little more when I wanted to really get on it.
Well after a little bit more research I started to fall for the ez30r just everything about it seem to please me a bit more and seeing people here have done it already and a heated debate to myself v6 or 4 banger turbo I decided to scrap the ej20 idea and purchase the ez30 instead

So this is where I have stop in the mean time I'm in the process of looking up a ecu maybe a link g4 xtreme or stinger 6860 also looking into some magic flanges or another option to cvs, the shifter and linkage and cradle once I figure this out I will start the build of putting everything together but I'm really close and can't wait to start I will post more pictures and chime in when ever I get the chance right now work and funds are getting in the way hopefully to finish by October for a trip up and down the California coast line as of now my goal is a reliable driver after all said and done I plan on turbocharging the ez30 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

So feel free to chime in and thanks for looking

Also if anyone knows of the specs that this conversion gives out 0-60 times,weight,mpg,things of that nature would be greatly appreciate (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif)

Get some longer studs. The offset on those won't be right. I'm going to guess you'll need 1" to 1"1/2 up front. Then 1"1/2-2 1/2" in back. I'll hope I am wrong there but I looked at a set once. Much deeper offset

Good luck on your project! Have Fun!
Just install the 100mm studs on the 911 hubs then you can cut off the excess down the road after everything has been fitted.
The radiator looks a tad small to me ???

Just a heads up on that light weight hose. I used it up front with my oil cooler and all it needs is one little thread cut or tear (just rubbing somewhere) and it will fail shortly after. What happens is that the thread unravels a bit from where ever it is
cut or torn, then that spot isn't protected against pressure and it blows the hose. I I had mine fail at an autox and it dumped 2 quarts of oil so fast you wouldn't believe it.

So use the stainless steel wrapped stuff, or you'll be retrofitting like I had to do. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

This is the radiator I'm using its for Hondas it's a tucked radiator for the Hondas running big turbos or in need of extra room I call them and talk to them they said it should be able to do just fine for what I'm using it for look a perrins build and many other ez30r conversions even when they turbo charge the motor they still us the stock ez30 radiator

As far as the hose im was thinking of using that hose shield don't really know what it is called ...and I'm will be metal piping with -16an bungs welded to it for under the car but completely understand where your coming from

As far as the 100mm studs thanks I will be looking into them will spacers be necessary

Cool project! Looks like the kit was done well. I like the front bumper on that Rayco kit. Good choice for motor, too! EZ30 was on my list - just wasn't brave enough to venture that deeply into the unknown at the time. I started mine in 2008.

Your coolant lines look nice. You better raise your car up high! You will rip the lines open after a few speed bumps. I've lost count on how many times my rubber lines have hit bumps...

You could fab skid plates to protect the lines. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

Looks like a cool build... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

That is the nice thing with the gates greens tripe hose. Tough enough can just flex with a bump. so even if it's smashed by a bump. Typically it is just temporary. That does look nice & clean. Can't wait to see you fire that up (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif) . Keep up the good work
