I'm posting so I can subscribe to the thread and easily find it forever. Kudos on a really smart build. I am considering a similar turbo hybrid using a 22e and my 03's EJ20. Your project is very inspiring to say the least.

Thank you!
Your 205 heads on the 22e block will induce lots of smiling since you'll be gaining low-end tq w/the increased displacement.
The DOHC 2.2 hybrid is a generally smooth & reliable build.
I've not experienced any issues caused by the engine & it remains reliable & ready to work every time I turn the key.

The engine is going on 8k miles of use (108k on the 22E block & 173k on the heads) & it hasn't given me a single problem in a long while.
The low-end could use some touching up, which has me looking into cams & stiff 257 valve springs.
I haven't gotten bored of it but because of it's midrange power, I find myself staying there a lot of the time.
With power mode switched on, this becomes a very responsive, fun little car that's good to drive because you can fling it around in the snow, corners, & rev the hell out of it.
From what I've personally experienced, I'd place the power order like this (from weakest to strongest):
SOHC 22E.
DOHC 22E.
SOHC 22T.
DOHC 25D.
SOHC 25D.
DOHC 22T.
Also, I have gotten the JDM side marker lights & I will install them once I get the wiring needed to do so.
It's going to take me a while to turbocharge the engine because I'm going to focus on my mod list & start at the top, which are brakes & suspension, then transmission & differentials, & then lastly, the engine.
