Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

The rods themselves are not half bad... But its the bolts that are your weak point. I wouldn't trust stock rods with ARP bolts in a 600hp motor either though. its just a wasted investment of time and money. Its not like you are going to change pistons without taking the block halves apart anyway unless you really like "doing it wrong". While you are in there change the rods to ones more suitable to an engine's build.

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

Once again, my only point is that $13,000 is far too much to spend on a built motor alone.

yes, but to say you can do a sub $13k full car is just incorrect if you are doing right.

Eclipse build from Spain anyone?

My running total is exceeding that already, from a pretty much stock car.

I've got about 50k into my impreza, but I've replaced almost everything on that car

Kinda the point... If you go so far with a project, you have a list of "might as well's"

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

Not sure?
There is a vid on you tube showing motor running with out the turbo piping being hooked up. Mite be able to tell from that?

Did they have over heating problems with there EG block?
or would cooling be improved with getting it sleaved?
I think I read they had it to about 3.7L

Re: e &m rigoli eg33 performance engine rebuild

Ha this thread just showed up on a search I was just doing for something else.
6 years ago. Wow. Well, I finally did it.




Also, in the intervening years I've learned that some of what I was saying before was obviously incorrect. Some was on point. This has been a major, major undertaking.

Care to share the do's and don'ts of building an eg33? I'm always interested in learning what works for different people and what doesn't. Also that image doesn't show, I'm guessing it's your Impreza? Love to see that too...
