you've mentioned the ones that come to mind. PM me is you are interested in buying the "core" engine to do this build. I have one sitting in my garage and it will run you less to have this one built than to buy one from one of those guys already assembled...

I would go with crawford, axis has a nice waiting list and magnus has a longer waiting list then cobbs. Not good.

What do you mean by sleeved? I am new to the boxer engines. Came over from VW's. So could you elaborate on it? I was told the 2.2 was no good for tuning?

Blocks are aluminum...so they are sleeved with Iron liners in the cyl.

Actually the 2.2 (sans cast pistons) is probably the strongest factory subaru block.

Mods to a 2.2 with stock internals? I have about 100 miles on a 10 lbs of boost via supercharger on a 1990 2.2 wagon! Lets see how long it lasts! Then give me a call!

Actually, it supposedly depends on the year of the 2.2. 1990-94 are stronger than the other 2.2s. Or so I hear. But then again, I am running 10 lbs of boost on a 1990 2.2 and it is great. And when your try this on 2.5 rs motor, they blow up. Which would you choose?

on the legacy turbo block, on stock, its reported to run high PSI with an intercooler. more than +2 atmopheres. remember, that block runs a very low compression, so u have to be spooled up to get that car moving period.

i will be having a used block that i bought overhauled so i can up the compression to almost JDM spec so i can have some torque and need the boost later on.

No,
You cannot use WRX pistons. They don't have enough bore. AS for your othe questions, go over to the conversions forum and look for a thread titled,"this should be the last EJ22T thread". It has links to discussions that answer all of these questions and have the math.

reddevil,
Methinks you are confused. We are discussing the EJ22T closed deck turbo block. You are talking about a plain jane NA EJ22 block. But your remarks about it being stronger than new EJ22's are correct, just not relevant to this discussion. EJ22T's can hold 25+psi of boost.

That is with out the gaskets. The ecu depends on what your going to use... but ya a wrx ecu would work. If it was reflashed.
