I wish one could still buy the EJ22 closed deck!

Sad, so sad to have to just try and find good used cores (I cannot find anymore, anyone else have any luck?)

I come across them sometimes. I sold the last one I had to a guy in England. For future reference, what do you pay for them?

OP sorry for the hijack, nice work!

Questions others asked that I'll also ask:

1) Any final compression ratio tests done?

2) Curious why you are using thin head gaskets vs. the regular sized ones? I'm almost positive but the regular sized ones are 3X the thickness of those cosmetic ones. I would be worried about using anything other than the thicker head gasket set, but this is just met.

3) And...how do you like this new engine? Has to be an entirely different car now

would have been easier to drop motor back in if
you had it bolted the chain in two places and leveled the motor out some.
but there is always more than 1 way to skin a cat..

Yeah. I know this. Do to my lack of motivation to call my friend or go out and buy one, I opted to go the hard way.

I tie an old seat belt to the front intake runners on each side to pull and install subaru engines. It works great.

$300-$600.00 depending on how good of shape the block and crank are in.

YES - OP - NICE WORK!

Its amazing what E85 can do.

I need a bigger turbo though eventually.

20psi tapering to 17. Something is not letting it crank out anymore power past 6000 rpm. Which is not a big deal to me cause i like torque! However I think a slightly larger turbo and maybe a set of Kelford cams would make this motor and build even better!

Interesting power curve. Looks like a stg2 STi power curve. I suppose it's a VF39 so that's expected. I know I can't compare my EVO3-16G-8cm to that.....different turbos.

It's ok if it tapers. Let it. VF39 dies up top. Hotside too small.

Back from the dead! This car has changed hands a few times and was parted last spring. I bought the 2.2L engine.

Stay tuned for a new thread as I build it back up.
