Default Turbo 2.2 rebuild

Hi people. Engine is out and so is just about everything else on my 93 turbo parts car. I'm looking for some suggestions on what to replace on/in the engine when i rebuild.
I'm thinking about this stuff:
New oil pump
water pump
main/connecting rod bearings
forged pistons
slight overbore
head work including porting and polishing the heads-new higher performance valves with springs.
All seals and gaskets-Metal head gasket maybe?
replacing the old 126k mile ihi turbo with a low milage 02 wrx unit with intercooler.
My power goals are a minumin of 250 crank with up to around 300.
This is just for the engine not drivetrain suspension etc...
Thanks
Brent

I don't know how much experience Cobb Tuning has with the EJ22T, but the EJ series is pretty interchangeable as far as parts are concerned. I'd email or call them in a week or two, due to their move from Texas to Salt Late City, Utah (Yay, i'm local!).

I remember reading about a certain year range that had "roller rockers." Maybe 96-98?

Rigoli racing has one of the fastest first gen legacy RS's in the world. They've done a lot work on that puppy. I believe there is an article on autospeed's site.

They should be able to give you some info......however austrailia did not receive the 2.2T, they got the 2.0T. But similar techniques should be able to be used between the two.

I had the same problem as you had, my main bearing wron out and I did ask the local shop for rebuild the engine, it cost $4500+tax Cad.
Then I just look for a used EJ20G (First Gen. Legacy turbo) engine and less then $4500+tax installed.

The other problem is the shop has good hand to rebuild your EJ22T engine or they just good for Honda engine only?

I for sure want to rebuild this engine, that's why i bought it instead of a newer wrx motor . Main reason for rebuilding it is to extract some power from it and take out the weak links in the engine (cast pistons worn out bearing etc...).
I'm really hoping there will be parts availble for the 2.2 turbo.

Give myself or Gen a call. We are working on 2 2.2t's. There will be a fast and faster motor. We can give you some specs on what needs to be done, BTW using the WRX turbo will not get you much other than the use of an intercooler.

What i mean by "Streetable" is the ability to drive it on the street without straining myself. I don't have to worry about emissions here . If i did i would just buy a new wrx and call it good.
I have upped my goal from 250 crank to 250 at the wheels. Anyone know how much power you loose through the drivetrain?
Will the stock oem 02 wrx tdo4 turbo net the same results on the 2.2 legacy motor? I would think the turbo would spool up a little quicker but fall off early.
They can get 250 at the wheels with exhaust, engine management and 16psi. I'm hopping for the same on my legacy.

Think i might be going with a tdo5 turbo with the smaller wheel 16g i think. Will the '02 wrx intercooler bolt right up with this turbo?

Hey guys the safest way to get that amount of hp and more while being streetable in my opinion would be this:
1. 550cc inj.
2. vf23 or vf 34 turbo.
3. top mount ic off of JOEM sti v5 or 6 impreza, or the water cooled ic off of JOEM legacy rs-ra.
4. down pipe, up pipe, cat back, and ex manifold.
5. engine management.
6. STI drop in sport filter or non oiled filter.
7. if car has high miles anything over 100k, if u can afford it rebuild the motor and valve train.
8. good electronic boost controler @ around 15-17 psi with race gas 18 psi or more.
9. also a GTR or bosch fuel pump.

depending on who and how the car is tuned, u can usually get some where around 245-310 or more with this set up.

Also good quality gas will help.

What kind of engine management would you recommend? I'm installing the 2.2 turbo motor in a 96 legacy. I'm thinking about running the stock computer with some kind of piggyback. I've read a little about the standalone systems and like the sound of them. What i don't like about them is the complexity that comes with them coz i don't understand everything about them.
I plan on redoing the engine before i install it. I will do some type of port and polish on the head and valve train too.
