Default 2.2l to 22b conversion.. sort of

i got a 98 outback sport, i traded a '91 s13 for a wrx wheel set and turbo/intercooler set. this is from a '02-'03 wrx, and i'm unsure of the actual turbo model (tdo4?). i want to make this work with as little fuss as possible. is the ej22 basically a bored out/stroked ej20? what weird parts will i need. i have plumbing, but no header yet. i would like some help if you can find time anybody. would this qualify as a backyard mechanics 22b? also i need to swap out the crap drum brakes in back, is that costly, is there an easy conversion? under $200? thanks anyone!

I would vote for you, I think you spend about as much time in this forum as I spend in the Legacy forum. And we are in need of Moderators that visit the forum over there too.

An EJ22 N/A block is an open deck design. The EJ22T is a closed deck block making it better for forced induction.

You'll need to get a Legacy turbo crossmember to make WRX headers work properly.

It's not a straight forward swap but it's not impossible. You'll need other stuff like injectors, fuel pump, engine management, etc. to make it work safely.

There's alot of information on swaps like this; just search around a bit.

Good luck.

thanks mykr! i've seen the crossmember deal in mags and elsewhere. so bigger injectors, and a fuel pump to fill 'em. i'm still unsure of engine mangement pieces that aren't overkill $ wise. i got a free turbo timer from a friend, but i'll still need a piggyback ecu deal for remapping, right? are there good adjustable ones that won't require a computer program for changes? i'm new to subys, but i've seen sr20det injector ideas on this forum, that's more in my field(s13,s14,skyline) of knowledge. i've tried searches off the forum sites and found nada.
the ej22t, is that the legacy or the jdm 22b impreza style motor? so on my weakly built stock motor, low boost from a stock wrx turbo should be best? i'm wondering if this turbo(although not huge) can shatter my motor at full boost. i want to swap a new sti motor if this blows up too soon. one more question, will gas mileage actually get better while on the highway(low boost)? again thanks for the info!

Kheff46,
All your questions are covering the "aftermarket forced induction forum" Go and look there like Jaxx said.
I have reported your post to the moderators.
Have a nice day.

If you don't get into boost that much on the e-way you'll be like a normal 2.2L motor on fuel economy.

It's not as easy as just bolting up a turbo and getting some engine management and thinking you're good to go. You don't need a turbo timer for now. I'd say do alot of research in AFI forum and then see if you want to go that route. It's not cheap to do it safely.

That's one BIG reason I didn't go that route when I had my GC6. I wanted a more factory reliable set up so I got an STi swap from a friend. She's down for now because of a couple blown bearings but I'm rebuilding her w/factory parts and she'll be fastAr than before.

Again...good luck and don't start think about "false economies" as my boss (eX-Prodrive engineer) told me when I jumped into my rebuild.

This IS AFI. I just never ventured into the thread, sorry. Subaru conversions deals with the conversion of factory pieces to factory pieces to resemble a factory state of assembly. You are talking about building a turbo kit for your EJ22.
