Seems like you could make this a lot easier on yourself by using a USDM single turbo swap. Heck it would be even better if you could find an ej22t since those are a little more compact and simple.

from what I have seen and heard the difference between a 2.0 and a 2.5 is about 4-6" in width and 3-5" in length witch puts the 2.2 and 2.5 beyond the size of my engine bay.... I might be able to run a 2.2/2.5 without a turbo setup but the clearance from my front cv linkage and radiator wont allow for it unless I run RWD so a 2.0 is the most I can run for what I want from her

The SOHC EJ22 from the Legacy turbo is actually narrower. Width is 28.5" according to this site: http://www.sdsefi.com/air11.html

eby you are right the SOHC is slightly smaller but why go with a little SOHC when i already have the nice beefy DOHC besides not many(if any) of the SOHC motors stack up to the DOHC models

Sorry it has been so long since Ive posted... I had to fix my car situation so i have something to drive while I work on my car.

here are some pictures to wet your appetite
at this point I have already taken out the carpet and all but the driver seat
Some Before Pictures




I needed some parts so I went to a salvage but they didnt have what I was looking for... but thankfully they had some metros so I took a hatch and bumper from a 97 geo I think the bumper looks better... though still not exactly what I want

The original bumper has a lot of damage to it... faded discolored with a huge dent on the driver side from something I know not what. damage to the license plate clips and one of the fender support screw stand offs are destroyed. both the cars mine and the doner had destroyed fender brackets

It was hell trying to fit that hatch in the back of my metro

Sorry no before pictures on the hatch... but it is basically the exact same


I also Installed a Spoiler if you had not noticed sorry no pictures. It was a pain to install and is still not perfect. if you dont know how to install a spoiler, look online, but for a short explanation, I assembled the spoiler off the car and took some masking tape across the feet, took off the feet leaving it attached to the masking tape and used that as a template. I failed the first time witched is why I needed a new hatch.

It took me two weekends to remove the dash all the screws are buried behind so it took me a wile to sniff them out and remove them.


after getting the dash off the only problem i had was with the steering linkage and the pedal box



Upon taking all the plastic off I found alot of Cancer over the wheel wells witch will have to be taken care of during the fabrication part of this build



so that leaves where i am at this point witch is pulling the engine witch will be hard to say the least without a engine hoist... i am going to have to drop it


on a side note I am contemplating Twincharging/Compound Charging the (what i have found out on closer inspection)EJ20R... I wonder if anyone has any opinions and or information on this

Also what is the most boost that has been ran on a EJ20R?

Chassis is striped finally

Ive noticed rust cracks in the control arm supports... good thing their coming out of there
as well steering port and mounts have to come out
new fuel&brake lines will be needed

good news though, the frame on the whole is in good condition...
no buckling, bends, or bondo... just a little bit of rust in some of the surface metal
