22B, hrmm....I'll believe it when i see it, considering it takes an act of congress to get a rogue 2.2L Block of that standard from FHI/SOJ (fuji heavy industries/subaru of japan).

To the best of my recollection, even owners of current 22B's have to be part of a detailed user list to confirm possession of a 22B in order to get parts and even a new engine from the factory.

According to rumors I have heard, this guy is some Australian rally driver with connections down under to source really good parts. He apparently races his Subie all over the globe, it's just he happened to pick Austin as his place of residence. Again though, this is rumor, nothing I have been able to verify.

Andres could fit in the trunk with more of a weight advantage. Put him on the right rear and he would offset the weight of the battery. Don't put him in there with your real trunk monkey though, bad things could happen<IMG SRC="http://forums.off-topic.net/images/smilies/boink.gif" border=0>

Don't listen to plarp. He doesn't know what he's talking about. He thought a 22b was the regular STi engine. I straightened him out.
