For you turbo ej22 folks.. will a 2002 impreza downpipe (aftermarket) fit the BG Outback?

I assume if I get a catless one I would have a CEL issue.. so my only option is a cattted downpipe?

Hey,
Eg33GC was right about my fuel cut issue! i spent way too much money upgrading my fuel pump and getting an fmu, when all i needed to do is buy some $10 ngk bkr7e-11 spark plugs!!!!!! i had 5's in, so it was getting way too hot in the combustion chamber, and thats all it was!!!!

I have a 1995 impreza L I recently pull the 1.8 out dropped a 2.2 in. It is stock bottom end, new rebuilt heads which I done myself. I've got a vf39 turbo, sti intercooler, Perrin up pipe invidia down pipe, wrx injectors with rails, walbro 255 fuel pump. I just need to find a oil supply line where could I find one? It's the only thing keeping me from turning the key

T off the oil pressure sensor located under the alternator. Just make sure you leave enough clearance for adjustment of the belt. You can easily get the hose you need to run to the turbo from that location

There are some great kits on eBay for the feed and return. You can use the standard banjo or go to a 90* fitting

There's also another block plug towards the rear you can take out for oil reference and thread in a 1/8" NPT plug that you can buy from Subaru

Look at post 73 in my journal. This kit will work but I don't think you can fit it under the alternator. I am going to put it in the galley in the rear on top of the block. Either that or hack up my power steering bracket and put it in the front

What brand are the pistons and rods? Curious to know which 25D heads you're using too?

that looks like a good build. I might end up with something like that in the future. Right now I am gearing up to put a 255 in my car that i am borrowing for a few years. It is fully built and should be go for literly any power you want just pick a turbo. I plan on de-tuning it to around 300whp for reliability

ive done some research and I was originally going to use 99 rs heads but I found out those are basically the same and wouldn't lower compression to(a boost friendly level) what I need. so im going with some newer 2.5 wrx/forester heads. and the pistons and rods are forged wisecos rated to hold 500whp to be safe for my 400.

Those would be EJ255 heads then. Which makes sense now when you say you are using a wrx ecu.

If anyone needs EJ25D heads, I have some completly rebuilt that dont need. I took them out of a 1998 RS and had them rebuilt and never used them. I include the cams and even the intake manifold with all sensors if you need it. They look great and all checked out. New seals, decked, pressure tested and lapped valves. PM me if interested

vf39 will get me to 300-320whp all day long on an engine like that.

I don't think I've added my contribution yet. This is what it will be:


EJ22E block
EJ20H heads
EJ20G intake manifold
EJ20K throttle body modified for EJ20G TPS
EJ20H intercooler
EJ20G injectors
EJ22T head gaskets
EJ20G wiring
EJ20G Legacy ECU with GrpN ROM chip.
I'm not sure of the turbo yet.

The engine is assembled and working in Legacy right now in N/A form. The ECU doesn't seem to mind the extra displacement, and the torque has increased significantly. There are hills that on original 20D I would have to drop a gear. With the 22D I don't have to, it still accelerates up the same hill in the same gear.
What I want to do next is turbocharge it, get everything related to the FI side of things working right and then I'm going to get a twin turbo exhaust manifold made up, similar in design to the SYMS one. I'm still in the process of working out what would be a suitable turbo in terms of size/flow/spool/EVERYTHING RAAAAAAARG and then have a matching pair.

Looking to do this, have been lurking for awhile now and have some basic questions. I know I have the phase 2 MAP OBS (99). Single port heads.

What up pipe would I use? I know i need to custom fab a down pipe, with my brother being a welder thats not a problem.

Up pipe is tieing me up though.

It will be much more easier if you swap your head, good shape ej205 head cost 250-300$ so... Ecu, intake, headers up pipe will be a direct bolt on after that!

Advantage: 0.2L more of displacement , the reliability is the same as the 2.0, so more durable than a 2.5L. Price is the same as building a 2.0 or a 2.5L

Disadvantage : Full open deck, some will said it will be easy to break headgasket... but under 400whp I don't see any problem..

I love that there are people still doing this! It's a great option on a budget.
The 2.2e is one helluva motor.

Reddevil and his antics got my attention about the engine. YOU sealed the deal by putting DOHC heads on it.

I'm going one further and attaching two turbochargers.
