So here's my build SO FAR. I'm a new member and new to Owning a Subaru but not at all a noob to doing builds or cars at all (I'm a tech). The car I'm building is a 95 (dual port) EJ22 N/A legacy wagon 5-MT. I procured the car for $1000 from the original owner with 320k on the clock BUT with every service record since it was new. Anywhoo, here's what I've done so far:

Added a light bar in the grill and picked up some WRX wheels


Picked up a good used TD04, WRX mani, STI fuel pump (I believe these are 255, yes?), and a WRX Scoop/splitter as well as my oil and coolant lines/fittings, intake elbow, an adapter/filter to delete the air box.





SO, I'm looking to get an UP/DP, TMIC, SAFC-II and then it's install time! If anyone is in the Bay Area and has these parts let me know! BTW if anyone is interested, this is the template I'm following: http://www.automersion.com/2015/05/t...o-subaru-ej22/

I'm interested in seeing how you carry out the rest of the build. I'm in the process of completing my ej22 na-t build (phase 2, single port exhaust).
I went a different route; custom uppipe/downpipe, front mount intercooler, and a t3/t4 hybrid turbo.

Got all the hard work done, now I'm making the move into the tuning realm. I'm using the Emanage Ultimate, well at least trying to.

Good luck with the build!

Hey man! I'll have that UP for you later this week. I'll be following your build.

Here's part of my member journal that shows how I did the oil feed/return

Here's a list and links to all the parts you would need

Count me in as well. Haven't made up my mind on whether to use existing 2.2 or swap on a 25d that I have sitting, but will be traveling down this path shortly.

That automersion write up was entertaining but more than a few inaccuracies for my taste. Just read up a bit more especially on RS25 about this sort of conversion. Attention on the EM choice vs engine timing and learning.

I doubt the author had seen a WRX oil pan, that's not where the oil drain is. Also that Vcover oil drain is NOT something I would do. There is a restrictive baffle in there plus the hose loop.
Geronimo's links are a better method by far. Or weld a bung into the oil pan is probably the better yet.

I read the automersion write up and thought the fact that there is no fmu or piggy back is sketchy.

25d heads on the 2.2 make for quite a turbo friendly motor

Thanks man I'll follow your oiling setup, seems less sketchy. And sweet man hopefully we can get our schedules lined up, I'm itching to get those parts! Thanks to you fuel/timing will be covered!

The 22/25d hybrid would be my choice if I had the parts sitting but this has so-far been an ultra low budget build so a full build just isn't in the cards as of right now.

got an outback bumper installed and got my WRX scoop mostly done. It still needs to be lowered .5" but haven't done it yet, I finished this late at night and havent had time to finish it. Hoping to get my Wideband and boost gauges in today, I'm trying to prep the car as much as possible before the process so it can be more of a bolt-in procedure.

Looks like I'm going to be accumulating most of my parts over the winter. After talks with the wife and a couple of friends my 2.2 will be left stock and remain my daily for reliability reasons. However, I have wrx suspension etc getting swapped into my 05rs so Im going to turbo the 253.

Is there a reason for picking the td04 over a vf39 other than costs. It seems like it would spool a little slower but the you would get more cfm per psi of boost?

He won't be maxing out the efficiency of the TD04 so if he wants more power he can just up the boost. TD04 is economical and easy to replace.

Hit it right on the head. For a stock motor its capable of providing almost double the boost Im looking for, and I like the idea of not having any lag!
