Default 90-94 ej22e block w/ ej22t internals?

I have heard that the early 90-94 ej22e blocks have the same forged crank and rods as the ej22t, is that true? How much psi would that block be able to handle with some ej22t pistons?

cool. So you have a later model ej22 block then? I read that only the early 90-94 ej22e block have the same crank and rods as the ej22t, then in 94 they stopped production of the usdm turbo legacy and the n/a ej22 blocks stopped haveing the forged crank and rods. I would think that if i could get a hold of a 90-94 ej22e block and throw in some 22t pistions it would be almost equally as strong as the wrx ej205 blocks right?

On another note Unsung Boxer what kind of power do you think you are putting to the wheels?

smahala,
What heads are you using? If you are using any of the EJ25 or EJ20 heads, don't even bother altering the Ej22E bottom end. You will have a nice mid 8's:1 CR with any heads other than stock Ej22 heads. The turbo pistons are not any stronger than the NA ones, they just have more dish for the turbo CR.

If you use the turbo pistons with any heads other than Ej22 heads, you will be down in the low to mid 7's:1 compression-wise and will want a massive turbo to really put that to use...

Troy and others with this set up run 12-15psi regularly on that block( and the newer Ej22 one) with Ej25 heads. It's a very doable setup...

I built up my EJ22T and have the stock rods and pistons left over. PM me if you want them. I took them out after I spun a rod bearing. The rods and pistons were magnafluxed and are in good condition. The bearings and crank had to be replaced though. I have all the rings if you want them to, but I suggest getting new ones.

I recently found out that Troy blew up his Ej22E a while back. He was running in excess of 20psi when it happened. Gives you an idea of where the limit lies with an EJ22e with Ej25 heads...

how did it fail? this seems to be some really cheap speed. i was planning on using a 98 EJ22E block, and throwing the 1990 EJ22E crank and rods into it, then grabing some SOHC EJ25 heads and pushing about 12 psi. for starters.

if a usdm ej205 can do it which is open deck also the ej22e can too. probably wouldn't push past 18 psi with wrx or sti heads
