homemade your pm message box is full and won't let me send any messages. Does you kit include any headers or engine management? Will it bolt right onto a ej22? Thanks

EJ22 + FI = KABOOM

At least from what I heard. There's a reason the EJ22T is so popular...

yeah, there is a reason... its called CLOSED DECK BLOCK!!!

I think the EJ22 and the EJ25 are basically the same thing. As long as you dont get boost crazy and tune properly, it should be alright.

That's the same thing that i've heard too. Subiekid is running an ej22t with a tec 3 stand alone and i asked him what was stopping me from turbocharging my ej22. he explained something about internals and what not but I was still curious.

The ej22 is just as reliable as the ej25, if not more. They are based on the same block, therefor the ej22 has more cylinder wall, thus will be stronger.

The first weakpoint is the head gasket which can easily blow because it is an open deck block. The fix is to have an o-ring placed in the head to pinch the headgasket.

The second weakpoint is the high compression. This will lower the amount of boost you can run. If you exceed this you will predetonate and break the pistons/rods/cylinder walls.

The third is the Pistons themselves. EJ25 are known for being weak. EJ22's are likely the same, But ive heard of people running 14psi w/ good tuning. I dont know if this is reliable.

You can certainly turbo your ej22. If you plan to keep the internal's stock, just start saving your money for either another used blcok or an STI block if you blow this one.

But dont think the ej22 is a bad block to boost. That is a misconception...

Been there, done that. Slipping clutch, detonation (only with stock fuel system and ignition), blown headgaskets, broken rods, and all. Pistons don't seem to be as weak as the headgaskets and rods.

I knew you were being sarcastic, so was I. I know how you Hampton Roads guys are, so I know I can mess around with you.
