Default ej22 na turbo build

I am starting this thread because I am in the process of rebuilding my ej22 with ej22t heads, pistons, and dropping a vf11 turbo in it. any suggestions such as how to achieve 15psi of boost would be much appreciated.

how hard is it to do a valve job - is it mandatory ?
pistons rings replaced ?

anything elses i should know about ?

if i were you i would use a td04. are you going to get new bearings also? its a good idea to have the cylinders honed a little bit(not too much so you'll need bigger pistons) and replace the rings since you are swapping pistons. make sure to clean the ring grooves really good.

Default Can you sell me a stock ej22 piston?

Good luck with your conversion. I'm investigating putting stock or turbo ej22 pistons in an eg33 engine. Could you sell or lend me one of your removed stock ej22 pistons so I can test the fit?

i would suggest leaving the na ej22 heads on it. they flow better, but for documentation purposes, i would put the ej22t cams in in those heads. i think the cams would help the low down power.

I have run an ej22 NA block and made about 320 whp with stock ej22t pistons. And yes, it didnt last long, but that wasnt the fault of the internals.
