Default help me identify an EJ22T...

Hey All,

I'm on a search for an EJ22T. I'm emailing with a craigslist poster who isn't sure of what he's got. I told him to simply send me a photo of the car or preferably a photo of the engine.
He seems to ignore my request (or not know what I'm asking), but he sent me this:

"On the sticker under the hood It says engine family NFJ2.2V5FFF3 Not sure if this is what you are looking for or not. Let me know."

obviously not very helpful.

What can i tell him to look for to verify that it is/isn't a turbo?
Is there something in the VIN that he can look for?

I'm considering sending photos of an EJ22 vs EJ22T, but i'm not sure that would actually help him.

I could send a photo of where the engine stamp is, but I'm fairly certain both just say "ej22".

Help me out?

Thanks!
-Chris

How could you get any kind of spark with such a ****ty photo??

Tell him to pop the hood, take a couple steps back and take a photo.

The engine bay plate will say EJ22T on it. All the other EJ22 plates say EJ222, or EJ22E.

This is Correct

If that Legacy is a "Turbo Sport", (as I dont believe that Subaru made a "SS" Wagon) it will have a turbo chimney on top of the passenger side manifold with a water/coolant box on the drivers side.

The hole in the hood is where the chimney vents to......I had removed the chimney B4 I took this pic.



You can see the water box on the passenger side in this pic

^^ I can understand swapping wheels and hoods from a Legacy SS to a standard legacy, but what else did it have that was eluding to being a turbo car? That's just weird.
