I just saw this, sorry I didn't answer the question, the spacer only moves the hot/cold fittings towards the rear of the engine, rather then having the one line run around the front right next to the muffler and also in a very bad area for a van, its moved all the adapter does is move it to the rear its still getting water before the thermostat.

I need to work on moving the water ports to the rear on the oil cooler adapter too, but its made with a material that I hate working with and seem to never get leak free.

I also made new hard lines that connect to it, one leading back to the top like the factory one and one that snakes behind the oil pan and between the flywheel/engine mount, it worked out perfect.

Hi,

Good job! it's not easy to deal with all the mess the factory engine has.

Why do you relocate the water fittings? they are located before the thermostat to give you hot air in cold morning within a minute. The spacer that has the new fitting is located in the cold water side or the warm water erea? I don't get the point yet.

Thanks

GSB

I need help determining how to install a VDO oil pressure sender and VDO oil temperature sender onto my 2004 EZ30D H6 3.0L engine from a Subaru Outback Legacy and I need to determine what my options are for install location of the sender.... what sender locations would be more desirable, and which would be less desirable for best accuracy. I am happy to drill and tap holes, or change hole sizes. Also, I need to hear a little about whether to tie in to the existing subaru sender(s) that may exist already installed for the engine. I can't mount the senders on the oil pan because they would get scraped off with the sort of driving I do, so I am wondering if I should just drill sideways into the engine just above the oil pan for the temperature sender. The "warning contact point" for VDO senders is about 7 to 8psi, which is much higher than the 3ish PSI I heard subaru uses in their own senders. I am wondering if this would be fine for me to have the VDO take over the job of the warning contact sender, or whether with 7 or 8psi I would be subject to too many false alarms. My options for thread size for the sender are:

My options for thread size for the oil pressure sender are:

1/8-27NPT (most common)
1/4-18 NPT
M10x1
M12x1.5
M14x1.5
3/8-18NPT (via adapter)
1/4-14NPT (via adapter)

The gauge I have goes to 80psi. Would this be OK for this engine, or might I need something higher, like 100psi, or 150psi.

---------------------------------------

My options for thread size for the oil temperature sender are:

1/8-27NPT (most common)
1/2-14NPT
M10x1.5
1/4-18NPT (via adapter)
3/8-18NPT (via adapter)

I can have a warning buzzer or light at 250F if I want too.

Purple-
Do you feel that Link ECU is smooth at all driving conditions as the original Subaru one would be? Does it run perfect in all temps and loads?

I think it is, I am having some high idle issues when the engine gets really warm (fully loaded, pushing it up a pass)...it will go from 800 rpms to 1500

But I'm not entirely sure thats related to the link ECU, I haven't had the chance yet to hook the laptop up and see whats going on...Could be something in the ECU settings that I monkied with.

On the RPM issue? Ohhh...that.

the needle on my tach keeps getting knocked loose, I have my gauges set to sweep when you turn the key on (yep super cool ricey feature of the link ecu) I'm going to put a dab of paint on the end of the needle maybe that will keep it from coming loose.


other then that, its been worry free...i'm switching to synthetic oil here in another 500 miles so I can skip a few more miles between oil changes.

we have put about 3200 miles on it since install, love it.

I'd probably love a TDI more, who wants to trade engine swaps?

Yes Sir,
Very valuable information at a glance and warnings can be set to any parameter you wish.
Not many truely understand the advantages and customization possible vs using the stock ECU and wiring.
The G4 Extreme can be set up to monitor and display so many inputs other than engine management.

The DisplayLINK is so much smaller than a laptop, with all of the same info at your finger tips while driving.

I'm sold.

Transmission and front diff fluid temps.
Fuel temp.
Exhaust temp. for starters

The newest conversion I am working on will have all of these.
My extensive experience with the setup is in a SCCA Pro race car.
All of that tech will be wired into this new Syncro project.

With all of this and more info logged I will be experimenting with what efficency I will be able to attain and making sure I don't roast Syncro transmissions and VCs.

Hey Purple, is there another site for h6t3.com?
Whats the MPG like over the 2.1, and 2.5?
Do you mind telling us what sort of cost there is in this swap for every thing?

Well, I think my ADD has kicked in and i'm going to be messing with another engine swap...people keep trying to get me to put a 1.8t in but I have diesel roots and have longed for one in my westy, just haven't due to the complex nature of the TDI conversion.

H6 has been great by the way, even with a stock tranny! this thing would be a dream with the suby 5 speed, but i've decided to sell the swap and if I can get the $ outta the H6 swap i'll use that to fund the TDI.
