I think, although I'm not sure, that the wiring harness is the same. Finding a Turbo EJ22 may be a bit tricky though. If you decide to go the EJ22T route, I know a guy down here in Portland that could possibly help with technical information and maybe even finding a motor.
Sorry, I'm not able to get onto NASIOC too much, but I just saw your post and I was wondering if could could PM me with the contact info for the guy you know in Portland. I'd appreciate it!
