Subaru SVX 3.3 6cyl conversion, specs and pics
Hi All

here are the specs and some old pics of the Subaru SVX conversion that we have just done, motor is an H6, 3.3i subaru SVX motor, Same motor in a new bus, old management did not work 100%, new one is perfect, cold start and all work as they should,

power is 151 Hp @ 5300 rpm
and 216 Nm @ 4800 rpm , with approx 180nm from 1800 rpm
Speed is in 3rd gear, on the graph,

rev limiter is set at 6300 but we can set it to 7000 as specced by subaru,

those interested can have a test drive by appointment, next week, it is going for aircon this week, and we need to sort out a gearbox leak,

Mmm
Those specs look very similar to the 1.8T
Wonder how it would compare in a test drive

RE: Subaru SVX 3.3 6cyl conversion, specs and pics
having driven both, guaranteed this will slaughter a 1.8T any time, anywhere, this is the best syncro conversion i have ever driven

RE: Subaru SVX 3.3 6cyl conversion, specs and pics
I really think that depends on the 1.8T. Mine produces 190bhp and 300nm. Torque starts coming in at 1750rpm and peaks at 4500. And is the most fuel efficient petrol I have had in a syncro.
There are over 35 variations to the 1.8t.
But as the saying goes different fokes for different strokes.

agreed, Russel, but this is awesome, just the thrill to drive, way better than the oettinger wbx6, and they were great too.

RE: Subaru SVX 3.3 6cyl conversion, specs and pics
Russel/Stuart how do you find gearbox reliability with engines like 1.8T and the 3.3?

I imported 2x '89 Syncros to NZ. One came with 2L subaru and the other an ADY (which was dead so swapped it for an AGG) and am slowly fixing them to get them certified legal here.

As I plan to repower the subaru 2.0 with 2.5 (like I did for my westfalia 2WD) or subaru 3.0 or 3.6 (all very easy to source here) I got Erlemans to rebuild the box+diffs that came as spares with one of the syncros. So they are all here now, but the rebuilt box is still in its wrapping.

Erlemans rebuilt the box with my request to make it as strong as possible (“heavy” housings and the fitting of the oiling plates from the 22S gearbox) but i'm not sure how 'strong' strong is, for 99% sensible driving with the occasional heavy foot no doubt. Your 300Nm is not far off a 3.6L...

If driven hard don't expect a long life even from the box you describe. You will need to cool,filter and jet your gear oil. I will be doing this on my TDI syncro box.
There is also talk happening about brand new redesigned boxes being made. When I have some concrete info on this I will post it up here.

RE: Subaru SVX 3.3 6cyl conversion, specs and pics
Sounds interesting. It seems to be one of the biggest obstacles in making a modern & reasonably powerful driveline for a T3. Even with a standard box rebuild it seems to be 'hit and miss' with reputable local transmission specialists, so I figured I would get Erlemans to do it once & right, hopefully it will last well with the right care.

I was looking at the 3.3 versus the EZ36 and although they seem to be similar dimensions, the 3.3 looks like it can have a shortened oil pan, but the EZ36 does not look like it can lose much height with the oil pan design.
