Default Price of used ej22 turbo

Well my gf's dad has a used ej22 turbo engine just sitting in his garage, he was going to use it to power a project airplane but decided not to. I'm just curious about how much they would go for, I don't know too much about said motor other than it is turboed, does not have the intercooler on it anymore and has 90% of the sensors needed

I was just wondering how much one would be worth.

Looks like in junk yards in your area they start about $600, but that would be complete and with maybe a 30-90 day warranty. The ej22's did not have intercoolers anyway, they were pretty low boost. They only had 160hp vs a wrx's 227. I would think it would be worth 250-300$ for someone that needed one.

Keep it and build it up with forged internals and new heads, sell it for a couple grand or more. The EJ22T block is one of the best Subaru ever built.

it never had an intercooler to begin with. the block alone is worth $500 maybe...the rest of it is just scraps unless you can find a oldskool BC turbo fanatic that needs an engine.

Actually, I have never sold one of those blocks for less than $600, for just the shortblock. I've seen them go on Ebay for $1000-1500 if you are willing to ship overseas. I've sold several stateside for $800 and one to a guy in the UK for $1000.

Everything else on it is worth several hundred dollars if you sell it off piecemeal on Legacy central. People who still drive those cars need a number of those parts and they are no longer made. There's pretty much zero demand for that stuff here on NASIOC, but if you market it in the right place, it can be sold.

ps. Go looking for Ron at Axis Power on google. He builds a mean 2.34l stroker out of the Ej22T block that would be really nice in your WRX. His shop is no longer called Axis, but that shouldn't matter. Or go to the Built Motor forum and search for him...

the boost was 8.7psi. these enngines are closed deck, the bottom end has been known to be good up to 350 hp. there is a reason this guy was going to use it to build an aircraft.

That deck, if built propperly, has no problem handling 30 psi out of a huge turbo..... That block with the right pistons and rods has capabilities well over 350 horse, hundreds more.

EJ22T FTW.

I sold a built .020 over EJ22 turbo SB with Wiseco's, eagle rods, ACL's, and the Cometic .051 HG's for over 2K. Unfortunately, machine work on Subaru blocks is expensive due to the design of the block with the dead hole cylinder. Most machine shops can "Hone" the .020 bore out but very few have a dead hole boring machine. Marine engine shops do, as most outboard marine engines are dead hole like the Suby. It does make it cost prohibitive unless you know the right people.

Oh, and the line bore on the EJ22 block, which you will almost certainly have to do, due to age and mileage, is another chunk of change to drop on it.

After having built my own block I can tell you that the prices from Ron are totally fair. It can be worth it, but in my case, I about broke even.
