LOL, I went out and sourced a '99 EJ22E short block. Came off a working complete engine cheeeeeeeep. Going to tear it down soon. Found some great deals on new STI rods, and got a stupid cheap price for a brand new set of Wiseco stroker pistons. Just good fortune I guess.

Measured the wall thickness, exactly the same as the EJ205 which is interesting. I don't plan on having it done so soon and no need to rush, but I'm so curious how a stroker EJ22E (2.36L) performs and how big a turbo I can put on it and maintain a torque curve that suits me. Thanks to you EJ22E hybrid guys for sparking my interest!

A picture of the EJ22E block in my garage, a diamond in the rough:
