Impreza 3.0R.... Ignition...
My Impreza 3.0R running finally, first fired up on sunday the 17th of october 2010 at 0945... A lot of time has gone into this, and this car has not been driven in 3 years!
Update here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAegYNB6z7o
Engine: 2006 EZ30R (3.0l H6, DOHC, VVT, VVL)
ECU: Link G4 Xtreme
Vehicle: 1997 Impreza HX20-S (or 3.0R, depending on how you want to look at it)
The base map is probably going to be made available at some poitn for people wanting to make this swap themselves.
There is a fair bit of 'tidying up' to do before its ready, the alternator does not charge as the Link cannot provide the regulation signal to it, the power steering explodes the moment it is loaded up, and the idle configuration is all wrong as you can hear... Oh, and it probably needs an interior, yay, more wiring!
Turbo 5spd Subaru SVX at the track
Phil's turbo SVX 5spd running only 3.5 lbs of Boost, turning pretty decent 14.5 second tmes. Keep in mind most SVXs run mid to high 15s, or low 16s! They were NOT built for the track, they were designed as highway bruisers, NOT street racers. :) So knocking a full 1.5-2 seconds of the stock time is pretty good. :)
Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???
My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63 seconds.
Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded. Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level maneuvering experience. Some may call this the impossible turn but power was available during the entire flight.
Nice video set to music. Aircraft are from MeadowLake Airport in Falcon, Colorado. Music is by Josh Joplin Group. Song is Camera One. "Great production by 4D Solutions, Inc."
A nice feature about the SVX on the speed channel
Glasair Subaru First Test Start
