Default Hybrid EJ22/EJ205 build idea

I'm starting to think about upgrading my motor. I'm not looking for huge power, but I want a motor that I can grow in the future. I also want something I can use in a daily driver. Emissions also play a small factor in it, so no crazy 1500 whp/1200 wtq build here.

Here's what I'm thinking.

EJ22 turbo block
Ej205 heads
EJ205 hg
EJ257 Oil pan/pickup

I'll retain my factory accessories. Since you're running DOHC heads on an engine block that was originally equipped with SOHC heads, you run Ej205 timing belt, right? Or do people running this engine hybrid run the EJ255/257 timing belt?

Before putting the motor together, I was going to get the heads ported, and possibly go with upgraded valvesprings and cams.

Since I'll be stripping the EJ22 block down and refreshing it, which may include taking it to a machine shop for truing, I'll be replacing the bearings and everything (assuming it's a used block). I'm going to do this myself. Is there anything that's difficult or requires modification on this assembly as far as getting the heads to actually fit the block?

All DOHC belts are the same, so buy the cheapest one.

You need the intake to match the heads.

Thats pretty much it.

you need 97-98 EJ22E HG. needs to match BORE. Bolt everything from the EJ205 onto the EJ22T.

So which crank are you running, it's stock EJ22T crank??? because that's a phase1 crank. There's no problem with that one. You can have the block machined to take the newer crank by allowing phase2 bearings to fit into the EJ22T main bearings from machine work.

Ahh, thanks. And, stock crank. I'll be using stock internals.
