Re: Practical Weight Reduction?

Probably not gonna be a favored idea, but here goes:

The EG33 has been recorded at about 402 pounds dry weight. That's without the alternator and I believe PS pump.
The EZ30 has been recorded at...

Re: Turbo, piggy-back, and EG33 boost questions

I'd like to weigh in on this, again. I have a piggy back I love, the AEM FIC6. Also a gear change is NOTHING compared to even 5 psi of properly managed boost.

Prior to using a piggyback on my...

Re: I have a mystery oil leak. Anyone have an idea what it is?

Typically, a little bit of (Fuji bond, ultra grey, whatever) is required on the valve cover gaskets at the sharp corners by the front cam caps, on the 4-cyls at least. They seem to have trouble...

Re: Gauging interest: 30th Anniversary SVX Meet in 2022

I'm interested. Been wanting to do a decent road trip, and 2+ years is a reasonable time frame to get my SVX roadworthy again!

Re: 94' SVX - Does not start - Code 11?

For what it's worth, I've been off by a tooth when installing a t-belt on an H4 and it idled fine but would break up when revved. Honestly, it sounds more like a crank or cam position sensor to me...

Re: OBDII Mt conversion???

Keep the TCU connected, and wire in some 10 watt 1.5k resistors as dummy loads for the solenoids, and a 330ohm resistor for the temp sensor. That's enough to get the TCU for an EZ30 to play nice, bet...

Re: Potomac Valley Performance

Pretty good chance it's the starter relay imo. I had to replace mine, and did the starter relay mod while I was at it, highly recommend. Now my SVX cranks with gusto EVERY time.

I do however keep...

Re: Hard Shifting and No Power @ the wheels

The early SVX transmissions are known for failure due to accelerated wear ultimately caused by overheating.

I'm not an expert on autos either, but I don't think the torque converter itself is...

Re: Sunroof drain tubes location and clogged

I do believe they're 'pop-its' or something. They are usually brutal to pull out and often break on older cars like ours. Just pull really hard. Maybe wait for someone else to chime in anyway...

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

Regarding the automatic, fair enough. However the 5-speed auto doesn't appear until sometime around 2005ish? Until then they were all 4 speeds, not sure if that's a deal breaker.

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

Sure, I didn't figure he'd actually pull one from an SVX, nor do I mean to be critical of his project. Just wanted to offer a possible alternative based on advantages I've perceived.

That said,...

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

CobraJet, have you considered the 2001-2004 EZ30? In my experience they're cheaper and/or easier to find. On top of that they're lighter and more compact than an EG33, and can easily be made to run...

Great job, are you running aftermarket engine management? I don't see a MAF...

Re: Wheel opinion please

Yeah looks better than I expected. I don't think I could live with the lack of symmetry from side to side though. I'm sure it's hard to notice, but I would know.

Re: Torque Steer

I don't know what it could be other than a failing/failed front differential. Does it always pull on the same side or is it random every time? Rapid back and forth? IDK if it would make a difference...

Re: Any one/shop that does 5spd conversions?

^What he said!

5 speed SVX isn't a rocket, but it's an absolute pleasure to drive and zippy enough. I recommend using 2nd gen Legacy stuff (brake booster, pedal assembly, clutch hydro cylinders,...

Re: I am ready to blow this car up. Won't start now.

How old is the battery? If not old, or if it is, check the connections. My Impreza did that when the negative connection was hardly loose at all.

I hear ya on the head gaskets. That's my winter...

Re: ~20 SVX lot for sale

I understand you wish for everything to go as a lot, but if you're willing to part with a stock exhaust setup and a pair of heads I'll drive down and see that you get what they're worth.

Re: Need Help

If you had found a manual turbo baja, I'd say do it. Super rare even by SVX standards and a neat car with a 4.44 five speed. But at the end of the day, as blacky said, it's an outback with the back...
