One thing about this. The older EJ22's got the same rods as the Ej18's and the EJ22-T's. I don't know about the pistons, but I would imagine the phase I pistons are probably better as well. So, an older EJ22 is likley a better candidate for for boost than a newer OBS. But if you replace the pistons and drop your CR, as well as O-Ringing the deck, it probably becomes an non-issue which phase you start with...

I've recently purchased a '97 Legacy L and am contemplating making my EJ22 turbo. Still on the fence about it. She's got some other minor issues to which I must attend before I start that project. I am very curious about the pros/cons for making it turbo.

Sorry, your S/N gave me a Firefly flashback....

What you are wanting to do, has already been done. Hate to sound like a broken record, but the search function works well. You could also try the other, more legacy specific, forums. A quick sentence in the googletron will help you a bunch.

Grrrr I love and hate this thread. So many uniformed idiots posting what they heard or think with nothing to back it up. ALWAYS!!! It's endless reguardless of the topic or forum board. Turbo your car. Stay under 12psi if you are phase 1. 10 if phase 2. That's soley with an fmu and wrx injectors. It will be realible as any subaru, as far as a to b goes, it'll just run like ****/have random probelms most likely. It'll still get ya there though Problems for me were endless over two year. Best and most fun car experience I have ever had. I learned so so soooo much from doing it. Don't buy a kit. or do.. but you're wasting your money.. I am telling you that from experience of turboing with 0 car knowledge previously. That's what I learned^^ and my advice. Good luck. And 'The Haters' know I don't come on here so any replies will be read by yourself

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...
