Just boost the 2.5 rs, New forged pistons/rods, ARP headstuds and a good tune should suit you well. either that or do a WRX or STI swap. Also keep your drivetrain, the only drivetrain upgrade worth doing would probably be for an STI. And if you want a 10 second car its ganna cost you ALOT more than just oem parts.

I was thinking about just slaping a turbo on it with forged pistions and rods .but not the arp head studs cuz if anything blows i would it rather it b the headgaskets thn the 1000 pistons.i kinda got my heart set on a ej2.2t swap with a port and polish and trippel cut valvs

I've been working on Subarus for about 8 years now I have no idea what you expect to accomplish with this.

You can't just 'slap' a turbo on an NA car... if anything, you need to get all supporting parts (injectors, TMIC, intake, etc), pipes, turbo crossmemeber, etc.. get it all hooked up, get some way to tune it, find someone to tune it, then run about 5-6PSI at best.

Your other option would be something like the AVO turbo kit for ~$3,500... given the car is in excellent mechanic shape. Given it's a '98 EJ25D with the infamous headgasket issue, it's certainly not a prime candidate.

You just don't slap on a turbo magically with forged pistons and rods and go driving. Nor can you mix and match parts from different decades as much as you plan on doing.. yes, they're legos to some extent, but not that extreme.

EJ22T's came on mostly the early 1990's Legacy SS... which are hard to find and no one really goes with them anymore when you can obtain WRX EJ20's for decent prices now, mostly which need work from spun bearings. EJ22T would be extremely hard to find in decent shape.



Ok, off my soapbox. I have no idea what I'm even doing ranting here.

Not sure if there was any English at the end of that post... you are completely illiterate please slap a turbo and intercooler onto your car blow it up so you can stop creating these idiotic posts... you are making me stupider just by reading this thread.

Wtf is "mechanically tuning"? The gist I got from this is that you are just throwing a bunch of parts together and trying to walk a 10 second Honda...

There are so many reasons why this will not happen with your current plan, and I use that term loosely, that I'm not even sure where to begin. To run 10s is going to require a lot more power and work than just a cobbled together drivetrain and a haphazard turbo engine. But you'll figure that out soon enough...

I mean, I'm not a tuner, but I do believe that tuning is all in the computer and doesn't involve mechanics...

I love how everybody comes into this thread and hates to the point of ignorance. Does this guy sound like he knows what he's doing? No, but you can definitely put a turbo on a stock NA subaru and run low boost for fun. I've done it and it still runs absolutely fine.

Mechanical tuning would be something like a RRFPR. I have one on my car. I do fine tuning of the fuel output with a needle valve (another form of mechanical tuning)

You can do it, I know. But you need to know what you're doing. Also, the tuning that was mentioned in this thread was a tune on the computer. Not trying to start anything, just making my point.

That statement is 100 percent true. However op did state that he was gonna go out and slay 10 second Honda's with said setup...this isn't even in the realm of possible. Not trying to hate but to say your gonna simply throw a bunch of parts together and be able to run a 1320 as fast as a hyabusa or zx14 is just nuts.

Use your 2.5 heads on the ej22 na you have and boost 6 psi with a stock legacy ss turbo. And get a legacy ss or tw crossmember and your good dude. Stock ecu will handle upwards of 260hp I've heard personally only got 197hp out of a stock ej22e ecu but what do I know.

True, OP doesn't appear to have done enough research in any of this. I spent a lot of years planning and researching before I was comfortable trying to turbo my car.

Yeah, I'm not defending the OP's claims. They are ridiculous.
