Default Legacy 2.2L/Impreza2.2L...?

Something that has confused me is the difference between the 2.2L engine that the Impreza had and the 2.2L Turbo that the Legacy was available with. Are they the same engine, just the legacy had a factory installed turbo? How about internally...are the pistons stronger in the legacy turbo or...? Also, when did they stop making the Legacy 2.2L turbo? Thanks

A lot of differences. EJ22T had:
1) low compression pistons and forged crank
2) Oil squirters for the pistons
3) Closed deck block
4) Precision pressure die cast block instead of green sand cast


I'm sure there are a few more but that is enough for now
