well nothing is impossible. after you invest about $10,000 and over night some parts from Japan, and put them on Domonic's account anything can happen. you could even make your maxima run 9's if you just tune the NOZZZ timer.

Grab the parts off an old 2.2T leagcy ('91-'94), buy a link engine management system to controll everything, don't run the pressure over 7psi and it'll work. I can't say for how long it will work, but for a little while anyway.

biggest external difference between the 2.2 and the 2.5 is the intake manifold and exhaust manifold.

However, the Throttle body, and the end of the exhaust manifolds end in the same place on both cars. Therefor any kit made for the RS will most likely fit the 2.2.

Depending on what year, some have top feed, others have side feed injectors. ECU pinouts are about the same. I hear they are interchangeable... so SAFCs and various Standalone's will work.

A full WRX swap is alot of work to... and from the sounds of it, im not sure that your equipped to do that.

make sure to do alot of research, but you came to the right place. Read FAQ's first,

the Autotransmissions have a reputation of lasting longer than the manual.

In my opinion, if you shift your Manual Tranny as slow as an Autotranny shifts itself, it would last just as long. The problem is people think you can just jamb gears and be ok. It also takes all the fun out of driving. I would rather have 5sp NA RS, than an Auto Turbo RS... but thats a matter of opinion.

I myself have blown my transmission after turbocharged, but to give it some credit, it did have 150K on it already.

It seems the biggest cuprit contributing to weak suby Tranny's is Caseflex. I will not go into it as, this is an AFI forum.

Good luck with your Turbo. BTW, many kits will not fit around the Auto Transmission, so make sure you ask before you buy/make one.

Well, you know, what's wrong with an EJ22E being aftermarket turbo'd? Grab a spare block, change the pistons for lower compression ones, put an oil cooler and an intercooler on it, and turbo it. Just because it is open deck doesn't mean anything, ALL new engines are open deck these days and that includes the EJ20T AND EJ25T that goes in the WRX, STi, and 2.5x Forester.

Just, won't be able to do a seriously insane dual turbo setup like an EJ20TT (closed deck) because of the deck design. but you can still turbo it reliably, you just need more engine care parts (IC, OC)

Also, you would need to grab an EJ22T ECU, and putting in a better fuel pump (walbro, weber + FPR) wouldn't hurt anybody. Or if you can afford it, just go for an aftermarket tunable ECU.

Of course the best decision that is one of the easiest for the cost is to grab a JDM EJ20TT (280hp) off ebay that includes the ECU. sometimes seen for around $1G to $1.5G. Sometimes higher, but, you know, you can still get them around a grand.

I say go for it...just be careful, as apposed to wreckless...Take it easy on the boost being you won't need as much, for now
I look forward to seeing this project done. The internals would make a world of difference...

Ten days till pictures are posted. Brad Weingartner also has a EJ22E that is turbo'd.
As for expense- I will have less than $1,000 in my setup when complete:

Turbo: free (market price $150.00 for used unit)
FMIC: free (market price $230.00 new)
Injectors/Rails: $120.00 (used)
Uppipe: $22.00
Downpipe: $22.00
S-AFC: $238.00 (used)
Charge Pipes: $48.00 (McMaster-Carr)
Oil feed line: $10.00 (True Value Hardware)
Oil return line: $10.00 (Adance Auto Parts)
A/F Gage: $61.00 (Advance Auto/ Autometer)

Total: $531.00 (excluding free parts)
$911.00 (including free parts)

** All labor excluded, since I'm building the damn thing


I may throw in a $20.00 heat exchanger (oil cooler) just to de-airate and cool the turbo oil before it goes back into the pan.
