'good #'s' is really relative. Honestly, 135hp from my stock ej22 is a GREAT # compared to the stock ea71 at 63hp. So a mild built ej25 frankenmotor would probably fairly entertaining.

And as far as lots of ej22 swaps running around in brats is very true. Being in a gen1 brat like mine is much more rare. It is quite a bit more difficult to do because you cannot use your factory trans and the frame rails are not wide enough. So yes, I have widened the frame rails. And this is also why I cannot use anything except ej22e heads. ej25 heads are actually the same width, but they are taller so to use other heads would also mean a custom subframe. I know of a couple gen1's with this swap done.

If I were to get +-175hp from a high compression motor I would think that's fantastic. Making a supercharger kit kind of like what reddevil did would also be not super complicated...

I think making my itb's function with perhaps a few other nifty things would be fun as well. This car is a tinkerer and it will most likely stay like that forever.
