I am looking to buy a good ej22t long block near 12477.

I met a guy who had ECS put a jdm ej 2o in his ss. I have a 96 ej22 but it has the siamease port exhaust so i dont see swapping that in as an option. i used to have a 1.8 and it was dual port. should i, or could i stop by the pick n' pull and see if they will give me an old leaky 1.8 and i then use the factory ss ecu to run say 7lbs boost on the 1.8? hehe?? is that a possibility? or am i dreaming and really i will have to part with a kidney to get my ss back on the road?

All years of Ej22T are interchangeable. There's no difference between a '91 and a '93.

You can also fairly easily install an EJ20G inro your car. I've got a thread here in this forum about doing it. I did it on my '91.

That's a screaming deal on that. The Ej22T blocks have become rare and desireable. I've sold a few of them, block only, in the $500-800 range. You can easily sell your core for $350 once you get it out of the car. Just put it in your regional forum here or on Ebay and it will go away quickly.

Either way, I agree with Matt, that's a good deal.

Another option for stock or close to stock power levels, is to replace the shortblock with a N/A one (keep the turbo heads). Compression will go up, but at stock boost levels it will be fine. There are a few Lc members that have bought cars and driven then for a (long) while only to discover upon the eventual teardown that someone in the past has installed a N/A shortblock. Some believe that dealers may have even installed a few when actual EJ22T shortblocks were 'sold out'.

Busted. I didn't read the story, just the opening question.

MILLIS AUTO in MILLIS, MA is a scam opperation, they clearly tried to "bait and switch" on me. when i got there they were insisting that a na labled with a turbo tag was a turbo and they wanted me to take to na 22 as a turbo.... only thing is im not that gulible and can clearly see the difference. watch out for millis auto!

thanks agian, I have been driving around on the 91 longblock for 2 weeks now. only thing to mention is that at the last min. of the swap when i was putting all the hoses back on and connecting the wiring, I had to keep my 93 engine wiring harness because the 91's was different.

also what was retarted was that the throwout bearing wouldnt let go of the press. plate so i had to do it "torque converter style" and take all the bolts out that hold the press. plate to the flywheel to get it done without worry of braking something.
Has anyone else had that happen to them? Is the problem i had just it being bound up or is there some thing i was doing wrong, like a clip holding the throwout to the diaphram spring ??? ... runs great now though like i said just was a pia and i was in a hurry.

It's designed that way. The bearing stays with the pressure plate.

You need to pull the pivot shaft that holds the release fork. Then the fork will drop out of the release bearing and you can pull the trans.

Doing such things without a proper manual tends to make it take longer. I am just saying...

Is the pivot shaft behind the hex cap screw to the far left in that picture? I have access to strap on's shop-key and was referencing it at the time and here I will quote there procedure that left me ignorant. somebody should tell snap-on they are so general with there procedures it makes them look bad when you have to pay for that kind of MISINFORMATION."

yeah thanks Matt,at the time my ex-boss was around and i asked him wtf was going on, he had said to remove the pivot shaft, i took out that hex cap thing (size of a quarter) and saw like a stud behind it. i was un shure about trying to drive it out or something so i just went with the shure thing, the p.i.a. press.plate bolts. well next time... it will be easier. thank you agian for your insight.
