just brought a stock legacy turbo set up and I was told it would be an easy swap in to 2000 impreza OBS. I can't find a DIY any where. any one have any suggestions? the kit came with the following: turbo exhaust manifold down pipe intake manifold fuel injectors fuel pump some other misc parts I was just going to run like 5-8 psi of boost to get a bit extra power for rallycross. open to suggestions if you know some one who has done some thing similar and have posted a DIY please share

I'm considering building a boosted 22E. Up until today I was going to build up a 22T block that I picked up for free. But now I might just sell it and use the proceeds towards a 22E. I already have a wrx ecu and complete dash/engine harness. I might be picking up some 205 heads and intake mani next week and I can get a phase 2 22E shortblock for $50. I can get a set of 257 rods and Wiseco .020 OS pistons for $200.

If I can get $800 or so for the 22T block halves that could help fund my build. I have a few sets of 22T heads, stock internals, pistons, and intake mani that I could also sell.

I was all about the closed deck 22T, but now I realize that the 22E is a sweet bottom end to use with 205 heads, especially with upgraded internals. And since my power goals are fairly modest 200-260 hp the 22T really isn't necessary to achieve that. If anyone knows of a good thread using a 22E, 205 heads please let me know. I've been doing a lot of searching, but no luck yet.

Did you try running it without the RRFPR or did you start with that setup? I am boosting my ej22e but 5psi and no management.

Exhaust manifold and intake manifold won't work with your heads. This might help

No i did not. Went straight to a vortec rrfpr following a diy thread. You are going to want something for fuel. You can get the obx rrfpr on Ebay for pretty cheap.

So for those talking about EJ22e vs EJ22t, The open vs closded deck isn't the real issue. It's the pistons. If you could get a set of pistons in a EJ22e I'd wager 375hp would hold.

I was looking at my svx pistons, they are so beefy. The bore is right I am just concerend with the length hitting the crank. The pin is in the same spot. the skirts are just larger

I'm going to try running mine without any management initially. I am convinced that the stock system can keep up. It does help that I have a wrx fuel pump already installed.

Then i would seriously consider a wideband. I really don't think you could run it safely. I think you would run way to lean under boost. Is 60 or 70 bucks really worth risking a blown or underpowered motor?

I ran 15 psi in my ej22e open deck until I jacked up the transmission; E85 self tune. 14.8 @ 98 at high altitude, Denver. (also it was 92F out that day).

beacuse when I cracked the ring land @370whp I got a ej257. and I'm going to push 400 this year and 500 next when i do turbo.

I ran 12.4 a ton of times on my ej22e before I dyno tuned it. I was having issues going into 5th preventing me from going faster

Wow, after going through this thread, squeezing something like 300WHP out of a 22E seems like a viable possibility, hmm... Honestly I was ignorant and didn't think much of this motor, gets me thinking now




BTW, can you tell me what front bumper that is?

Hey guys, Im not sure if you would know whats going on, but ive been having some minor issues with my turbo setup. I had a vf11 on my 98 ej222, and it ran great at 7 psi and had plenty of power. i decided to intercool it, and it was easiest to just swap out my vf-11 with a td04 at 5psi. So, at sea level now i hit a fuel cut at 4000 rpm (only at wide open throttle.) i moved to idaho for college, and i live at 5000ft above sea level. when it is super cold outside(below 0) i have tons of power all the way to redline, but now that it is warming up outside, it feels like a parachute gets deployed at 4000 rpm at wot. I thought it had something to do with not getting enough fuel, but im pretty sure that isnt an issue. What do you guys think could be the problem, and why would it be so sensitive to warm air, which should be less dense? Your help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

youre probably getting knock. 4000 is prime territory for detonation.

whats your em?

Sounds like a fuel issue. Lack of pressure or not enough. Possible cel causing it to cut? Is it map or maf?

I havent gotten a cel at all...and it it is a 98, so it has a maf. but im kind of confused about that too, cause when i had my vf-11 turbo on it, it spiked too high once, and threw a high intake manifold pressure code. so that makes me want to think there is something monitoring manifold pressure.... If it was detecting knock, wouldnt that throw a code as well? would changing spark plugs to one step colder get rid of a knock? im not using em, just stock ecu. thanks for your help, guys!
