Finally after much research, planning, part sourcing and a smidgen of blood, sweat and tears, I have a working Subaru DOHC EJ25 engine conversion in my bus. I've got a few little tweaks to make, but I am very pleased with how well it now drives. The last major job is to get a custom engine protection bash plate designed and fabricated, which I'll farm out.

90% of the components were from RJES, with the shortened sump coming from Burley motorsports. The RJES components are wonderfully engineered and fit together very well.

Oh and the RJES exhaust system gives it a wonderful howl that makes my young boys (and myself) grin from ear to ear.

cheers,
Rich

Thanks for the comments - it's much appreciated. Very Happy
It's amazing how little space it seems to take up.
