Default 92 legacy 2.2T

I'm thinking about taking this on. Already has some mods but I'm more interested in the motor. I'm thinking just keeping it simple. The guy says the motor knocks. I plan on doing a simple motor pull, clutch swap, ej205 heads, block rebuild with all forged parts. And tune to hit maybe 12-15 psi. Any reason to believe I would not hit 250 awhp? Thoughts? Suggestions. I'm trying to keep it as a back up car that could be used if my prez goes down. So it has to have DD potential. I'm also looking to stay competitively low in price. Not a cheap ricer build but not a monster one either.

WWW.LegacyCentral.org is where you want to be for this project.

Wrong head choice unless you want to do a complete ECU/harness swap.
250 at the wheels is doable on a stock motor.

Thanks, doing as much research as possible.

As someone who has done an ej22t build, you are either going to want the ej20g heads or ej25d heads.

Depending on what turbo you go with (i have a vf39) the stock ej22t ecu can hold 13psi before it fuel cuts so you can get a decent amount of power without any engine management.

Search for rob tuned ej20 ecu, that will be your best option for management for the obd1 motor.

Default I have a 94 legacy turbo

I just pulled the cylinder head and noticed that the number 1 piston is broken. Hardly any damage to the cylinder wall. Im wondering if you can use the pistons and rings from a ej22 n/a in the ej22t block with the stock bore of 97mm?

I'm not sure. I pulled my motor apart to find cylinder 3 rod bearing gone.
