I think I copied Helbus' pipework.
Here's the photos of mine:
http://www.vwkd.co.uk/bb/viewtopic.php?t=638 

I connected the two rocker covers via a 15mm copper pipe and a T to one side of the inlet tube.
The thick one's 22mm IIRC from the crank breather to the opposite side of the tube

The EJ22 was rattling a little bit, and it started rattling real bad after racing a Commodore last weekend. He felt pretty good anyway. I think I may have done the bearings. 3 years with of city drag race starts at every set of lights didn't help.

Not good mate, feel for ya. But engines are cheap.
I don't suppose it's your Alt/power steering pulley coming loose?

Even better when you're still using the original motor!! that really upsets them cause when they see a transplant they see that as an excuse as to why you won.

Never had excuses with a nice Type 4!!! More dumbfounded looks than anything....

My engine lasted for 460 000k's before it dropped a valve. that was 8 years of sheer hard driving doing 1000 odd k's a week.

If the Subi is a goner then perhaps step up to a turbo or 2.5L for more power!!

LOL. The way it was will always be the EJ22 now. The VW engine would be "As manufactured"

Rad was from Custom Off Road. They've modified the design since.
I'd re-read this entire thread if I were you :)

Also read Brendan's (71EJVan) thread, search for Surf & Swoosh.
You'll learn heaps

Peter's & Brendan's threads taught me loads back in the day

And yes Peter's located in Oz
