this ebay radiator was mentioned by a member. the price is right, so it may be what i will use?

update 19dec2015: I recently put one in my v8 car using a&p mech's mounting style and it is working fine.

some sensor fake output info... from tonyakavw and scott914...

Okay, so I THINK I WILL NEED TO fake/simulate the following sensors depending on which Subaru donaor car I buy..

Fuel level sender (0.12 to 4.95 volts)
Fuel Temp sender (2.5 to 3.8 volts)
Fuel Tank Pressure sender (2.3 to 2.7 volts)
Rear O2 sensor signal (0 - 0.9 volts)
Neutral position sensor (+12 in neutral, 0 when in gear)
Rear O2 heater sensor signal (0-1.0 volts)
Power Steering oil pressure sender (open/close)

There may be one more, I'm still finalizing the wiring...

Most of these wil use small 10-turn potentiometers to set the desired signal voltage, but I may end up using real metal-film resistors in the end, as they are a bit more reliable.

-Tony

Regardnig the sensor simulator, I won't be simulating the front O2 sensor. That is used by the ECU to run the enigne, whereas the second sensor is there just to verify the cat is working. Since I'm not going to be running a cat, I have to simulate the second sensor.

that looks like you are mising a few plugs, but i cant see it all very well. dont tape it up too much you will probably have to open it up once to fix something.

all the plugs i can think of are :

brain
2 o2 plugs
3 for engine connection
fuel pump relay
main realy
ignitor
obd connector
purge and pressure switching solinoids ( 2 plugs )
connection to relay board

then loose wires are :
power
ground
speed sensor
temp sensor if you go stock

then you need wires from the alt

When does the build start? Not a fan of acquisition threads, so much. Onward thru the Fog! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

There's a lot of stuff to acquire before the build.

If you want to complete the build in one week, yes. Or someone that is paying a 3rd party, as in your case. JMHO

I'm going to get some help from my shop on the Suby build but I'm the one building the car. The Porsche build is getting done by scotty b. If I had the money, I would have both cars built 3rd party. I will say that for me, a non mechanic, just getting the parts together is a struggle, not a bad one and the people on this site are great and I'm having fun but for me, a lot of this stuff is pretty confusing.

i'll try to blend ACQUISITION with ACTUAL BUILD photos and text.

my car needs some welding, but the rest will mostly be bolt in. nothing too fancy, that is for sure. super low dollar build. planning on frankenstein axles or have dutchman machine some.

Do you know of anyone here or elsewhere using these axles or any idea of the cost?

Dutchman has been recommended by bigkat_83 who is amazing resourceful and a phenominal fabricator.

as I understand it, not all conversions can use the same axle length but I have to recheck but I think bigkat had Dutchman machine stock 914 axles to work with his suby conversion. I think the cost is about $150 for the machining on one end. one end would retain the 914 cv spline, the other end would get a suby spline machined in, I believe.

you (and I) need to read every suby thread, I have several listed in my signature.

Sweet idea for the axles- I may just send my SVX axles and have the other end reworked for heavy duty Porsche cv joint ends. Which cvs are the strongest that match up with our rear hubs once they've been modified for 5 lug?
