Default EJ22T conversion---expert advise needed

Please advise on several questions.

1.) I'm thinking about a putting an ej22t (70k miles with auto tranny) on my 93 impreza. I have a fwd that I'm going to convert to awd. I want to know what 5MT tranny I can use for this conversion. Would any WRX or Impreza tranny work? Could I use my existing 5 MT fwd tranny until i get an awd tranny?

2.) Do I have to worry about wiring when it goes into the impreza? The EJ22t motor is coming out of a 91-92 legacy. I have the ECU and wiring harness. Is this motor swap difficult because of the wiring or is this just a matter of installing the motor and the ecu?

3.) later on what mods can put on this engine to make decent power? I'm thinking conservatively so as to prolong the life of the engine and stay within the smog legal limits. I live in Los Angeles. Is 200-230hp a possibility? I know it has stock 160hp and I'd be happy with that, but please tell me what's possible.

Thank you in advance for all those who are willing to help out.

any ej series tranny will work with any ej series motor any tranny coming from a turbo car such as legacy turbo or wrx is a hydro so you'll need to convert that if you want to use that tranny fwd ej22 will work yes you'll have to wire up the new motor and yes its hard so I've heard. you can easily see he amount of HP you want for the motor you have. also do a search I'm sure all of what I've said has been said before

hey- theres a sticky that will answer alot of your questions. we have bolted up a FF trans to a EJ20g, they bolt up to anything.

if u dont want to deal with wiring, do the EJ25 JNA swap. its a frekin dream to put in and makes an easy 175 PS NA. u can get a JDM WRX motor to pass smog. at 280 PS too. if u are in LA,parts are plentyfull. might as well go JDM wrx if u are going to bother. how much are u getting the legacy turbo changeover for? i knwo World auto parts has one, but its not cheap. for the money JDM wrx will be worth WAAY any extra u spend on it.

Pretty much anything is possible with that engine. That is one of the strongest engines Subaru ever made.

LA? i have lived in LA, i would say i frequently happen to "live in LA" for periods of time but not currently rite now. i was there from july-sept. though :P

yeha, realistically speaking, if u are going to go for the EJ22T and leave it mild, id realy just go with the EJ25 and have NA power. unless u are going for straight out drag speed, the NA 25 will be more fun for the same power turbo 22 on a mountain run or a track. im sure peopel will debate poo this poo that, but theres alot of things going for it (weight, response, power w/o boost, modulation, etc)

also, a NA ej25 swap should be able to go in your car for about $800 easy. (i spent $325 on mine) beat that with a EJ22T and ill be suprised. also took about 12 hours of inexperianced idiot labor, probbly could do it in 7 hours now. EJ22t swap will take about that long just to mess with the wiring.

narg.

ej22 tubo > ej25 NA But it comes down to what you like, I would rather have the tq of the 2.2 while still keeping the rev happyness of the 2.0. But others like the flat out tq in the 2.5.

My motor is going to be a 2.2L block from axis or I speed with a ver8 sti crank. It is the strongest deck subaru made.
