wrx injectors wont fit. you have to use nismo injectors with n/a fuel rails. a FMIC is not needed unelss you plan to run a big turbo. A wrx ic would be fine. THe stock fuel pump is decent, and wont need upgrading till you run big boost.

is your car green with an AT? i remember one on ebay a few years back that had an ej22T/

no its red, i just got it a week ago. and the kid i bought it from had trouble getting the stock wrx intercooler on, and he said that the boost leaks or something so i thought that if i just eliminated the tmic with a fmic then that could get rid of the leak, and i wanted to run more boost. and someone said if i went from a stock turbo to an sti turbo then you would have to up the internals.

Joe,
You are in good hands with Subiekid, so I won't add any to what he has told you about troubleshooting this issue. But what I quoted is patently false. There are a number of guys running around with 300+CHP on EJ22T's with bone stock internals. Being a phase I engine, your rods and crank are forged and bulletproof. The limiting factor on the power that an EJ22T can produce is how much the heads can flow. Can they flow enough for a 500hp build? No. But they can easily flow enough for 300 or even 350hp without porting. If you get really serious about power at some point, you will want to switch to some DOHC heads from a 2.5RS or a WRX. The cost of the heads will be about the same as getting yours ported. But that is a long ways off from where you stand now and would require uprgading everything (but the block) that is currently on the car. heads, turbo, injectors and rails, engine management, etc.

And a TD04 isn't enough of an upgrade to warrant switching. If you go to the trouble of switching, get a TD05 along with a decent sized intercooler and some upgraded injectors...

you can have a boost leak from other then just the IC. and you have to cut the IC and TB down to get it to fit. Or source out a ver 1 ic, but those are hard to find and small. A FMIC on a stock turbo is going to be really slow. do some reasearch. you will need to upgrade the turbo/injectors before you get a FMIC, and a stock wrx turbo might not be big enough to help you with a FMIC. and then you will need something like an SAFC to controll the larger injectors. do you know if he converted it to use the ej22T ecu or is it running the stock impreza ecu? if its got the impreza ecu you will have to get something to controll timing as well or you will blow your motor up.

try removing the ic and putting the stock plastic section on. do you have a boost gauge? monitor your vacuum, see if you have running around 17 m/hg. (I think its 17, might be 11) Take a can of starter fluid or carb cleaner, and spray it on a little section of the motor while its running, if the car idles faster then you found the leak.

I bet its around the boot B section or near all the PCV junk. I had a boost leak and my car was jumping up to 0 psi at idle, and then back down to vacuum.

It also could be the way he hooked up the IC. you have to do a custom pipe set up to run the IC so he could have messed up and is leaking from that. Just put the stock pipe back one and see if you are leaking boost by monitoring your boost gauge. And if you dont have one an autometer gauge will do fine. Get something that does like 20/20 or 20/30.

Not needed. If you search in any of the forums, mostly the 2.0 and 2.5 turbo you will find that factory turbo ejxx motors dont need to run in order to cool down the turbo.

A good thing would be to let the car idle for a few minutes after running hard or a long trip. The onwers manual talks more about it.

you might look in bbs.legacycentral.org for the parts diagrams. I got them off of there. I just went into the local dealer and ordered every section of pipe that goes to the PVC system, and other parts of the intake. Boot B was the most expensive at like 80 bucks.

Try getting all the part numbers together and send a PM to Subie Gal. She gives decent discounts on parts. She also ships orders out hella fast. And she can also go over the order to make sure you have all the parts.

I tried using some universal hose for some sections but it just made things harder. I still have some universal hose going from the block to the PCV because I didnt have my parts and needed to get the intake manifold back on.
