Jutboy's EJ22(T) Build Thread
Alright, lets me start off by saying, I know there are a bunch of these threads out there already and I'll try not to repeat them....I'll try....I really have spent about 6 or 7 hours reading about this topic over the last two nights....that doesn't count the hundred some-odd pages I printed out and read at work. Seriously, I'm starting to lose my mind....
So quickly, I just bought a 91 Legacy Turbo, before I register it I want to yank the engine and do some simple/effective/inexpensive mods to it....I'd be happy with around 350 whp and realiablity is a big deal to me.....
So everyone seems to say throw some 2.5 heads on it and a decent turbo....easy right?
1)How easy/hard is this, I've rebuilt classic engines (pre-80), but nothing liek this, nothing with turbos, I don't want to get myself into a huge problem, the car runs fine as it is.
2)The heads.....SOHC or DOHC? Phase I or II? I'm having trouble understand which actually will match up properly, are there a certain year/model ranges that I need to get...any that I don't need to do any machine work on to get them to mate?
Also are the SOHC non-interference...that seems like enough of a reason to go with them........
3)The Intake.....I'll need a new one for the heads, does this bolt on easy enough? Do I have to fab something up?
4)The wiring.....As long as I keep the hp to a reasonable rate can I keep the same ECU? Are there any sensors for the heads/intake that I have to worry about?
5)The fuel.....Does the injectors depend on the turbo I get? Im assuming 550 cc should be enough right? Also I'm going to have trouble running my fuel rails?
6)The Turbo, I found some good suggestions on which ones to get but none mentioned how it will fit into my engine compartment/down-pipes.....I'd rather not waste lots of money/time fabricating pipes.....if I can even pull it off.
7)Is there anything I'm blindly ignoring, I'm trying to be good and not just dive into a project.
7)ANYONE THAT HAS ANY PARTS PLEASE PM ME!!!
8)ANYONE THAT IS WILLING TO CHAT WITH OVER INSTANT MESSANGER CLICK ON MY LITTLE SYMBOLS OVER ON THE SIDE!!!! I won't bug you much but it would be nice if I had a quick question...
THANK YOU SO MUCH -Justin
