Default eg22 dohc?

hey all! I've been looking around for motors to do a swap into my 96 outback and came across this.

http://torontojdm.com/cart.php?targe...ategory_id=115

now I've looked around and have found out the only eg22 dohc subaru made was from the 22b sti... which is supposed to be rare and if it's rare why is this engine so cheap? I looked up the tranny code and it comes back as saying that tranny came with v3/4 sti or legacy gt b spec... which may make sense because I've read Subaru took the block from an eg20g v3 and the heads and intake manifold are from a eg20k v4. so is it what it claims to be? any help would be much appreciated

ok its not en an eg
its not a 22
its an ej20k

looking at the tranny code its probably from a gc8d48d (standard 96-97 wrx)

so its a 280 ps with a vf-22 .. a pretty good engine .. -i have one

however with out a harness/ecu its not a good swap candidate
just from what i can see its also missing the intake, maf, ic

it also looks to have a modified down pipe
this engine has been messed with .. to get in the intake pipe out you have to completely remove the manifold and fuel lines

just say no

That is a ej20R or H converted to single turbo. The 20k had the single coil pack mounted on top of the manifold, this engine has COP system you can also tell because of all the vacuum lines on top of the manifold.

You will have no idea of what is done to this engine. Like Jaxx said "Just say no"!

Actually I think that's not converted to a single, I think it's just missing the left side turbo.

Looks like it. The intake pipe to the turbo(s) is also missing.

Based on the transmission code it's an EJ20R. Same basic engine as the non-STI EJ20K, 7.5k rpm redline, shim over bucket valve train, cast pistons, stock rods.

Its funny I was looking at the same engine wondering what the hell it is. Wikipedia article claims that in 1992 there was a STi Legacy Touring Wagon with a EJ22 DOHC turbo.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_...rst_generation)

"According to a translation of Wikipedia Japan of the Legacy, in August 1992, the "Legacy Touring Wagon STi" was released and limited to 200 units. A nardi three spoke black leather steering wheel was installed with the "STi" logo on the center horn button. The only major upgrade mentioned was upgrading the fuel injection ECU, and increasing the turbocharger pressure from the standard 450 mmhg, the free encyclopedia[/url] to 650 mmHg, which was being used on the "RS" sedan and the same engine torque output, with an automatic transmission only. This wagon used the ej22 engine that was shared with the first GC8 series Impreza STi "22B". "

This is somewhat suspect as some sources say that the 22B was in fact not an EJ22 block but a EJ20.

I found a picture of a 1992 legacy Touring Wagon on the STi "news" site but it is in japanese with no specs.

Regardless these are the only two examples of a factory DOHC turbo EJ22 that I could find. Given the very low production numbers of both I think its safe to say the engine is not as claimed.

Like others have said the 5MT is circa 1997. The same guys have a similar listing with an auto trans.

Seems to fall under "if it looks to good to be true it probably is."

The only turbo engines ever to be 2.2L were the 22B (DOHC) with it's own unique block and the US-only Legacy Turbo (SOHC) with it's own unique block. Both are not related to the EJ20 closed deck: the 22B EJ22 is closed deck but has no oil squirters, the Legacy Turbo EJ22 is closed deck and has oil squirters but also an additional crank case breather which the 22B EJ22 and the EJ20 closed deck do not have.

Don't you love wikipedia? I can go write whatever technical gibberish I want, publish it and then see it spread through the internet like a wildfire.
