Default Subaru Ej20 2.0 Twin Turbo Engine

I have a 1994 Impreza L sedan, and I want to turbo it...and I came across a EJ20 2.0 TWIN TURBO ENGINE, its the whole engine itself, I dont think it comes with wiring harnesses, clutch, or tranny.... my question is..what is needed for the conversion? would i be able to use my stock clutch and tranny, i know i might get a new clutch, but wut about the tranny...isn't the EJ20 a 6-speed?
Thanks,

redo the turbo plumbing and make it a single turbo and it will fit.. as it being a twin-turbo it will not fit, unless you obtain a US spec right hand drive Legacy mail wagon.. The steering rack is in the way... and trust me the twin-turbo set-up is too complicated to re-work.

4 negitive posts here is one positive

twin turbo engines are cheeper for the above reasons

but there was a WRX headder+uppipe onthe board for ~75 yesterday


for the cost differance you could easly match TT block and usdm WRX componets fro cheeper than most other ej20 packages

twin turbo engines are more expensive from my experiences. they sell JDM engines for 650 (single turbo) and the TT setup for 1150.

a friend of mine has done this...you can re-plumb the turbo system to run on a single turbo, but you're going to want a better turbo and proper wastegate to go with it, since the single turbo will run at about 8psi. in that state of tune, flat out it wasn't much faster than my 1.8. plus it would promptly lose almost all power above 5500rpm, since there's supposed to be another turbo there to take over.

so unless you have a RHD legacy laying around, i wouldn't reccommend it.

alright so basically a twin turbo wouldnt fit without modification, what about the EJ20DET, 220hp single turbo engine, would that fit perfect, and wut about, tranny and clutch again...do they have to be changed

If its a ej20det you probably looked at Nippon motors right. I wouldnt bother they dont know their heads from their @sse's tried to sell me a J-spec WRX motor with 240hp. turns out it was a legacy motor and most of it wasnt even there!




Oooooops forgot to put the "e" in heads

nippon motors is pretty good actually. they might not know what they have, but they do have some good engines. i believe Gery has bought about 10 motors from them and all have been great.

Buy a 2.2 liter engine from a 2000 Impreza L, It will fit and there seems to be less problems turbo'ing the 2.2 block versus the 2.5

Then add a Forced Air Technologies Twin Turbo kit

um sorry your thinking of a 2.2l 91-94 turbo legacy block not a standard 2.2 block large differance

iirc that twin turbo setup had proublems with the two turbos fighting each other

twin turbo:
i shoudl have stated my point more clearly
remove twin turbo headders+turbos.. throw away
buy usdm headders+uppipe+turbo+downpipe+intercooler(all of which are cheep to come by)

Actualy the EJ20TT header is 1/2 the same as the EJ20T one. The whole right side and center pipe is the same, its just the left collector and left uppipe are different.

I thought of this as well and contacted Forced Air Technologies. They said the twin turbo Stage 4 kit is intended for the 2.5RS due to the larger displacement of the engine. They then recommended either the Stage 2 or Stage 3 turbo kits for the 2.2 liter engine.
