Yeah, but it seems that most of us RS-T guys can't seem to get the intercooler on level(damn that A/C line!!). I guess thats what the front mount is for. lol

on level? you want it to run parallel w/ the top of the intake manifold which has a slight slant to it. Maybe its an optical illusion to you, but my intercooler sits how it should. the AC line has been moved downwards, and the IC rests properly.

Also, its not an RS-T

it is an L w/ various RS/WRX/STI replica body parts... nothing fancy.

The engine is a 2.2L w/ Turbo Legacy internals. A pieced together turbo kit using WRX and EJ22t parts, and all custom piping. Emanaged! 12lbs boost. Havent ran 1/4 mile yet

Kits are ok, but in my personal opinion, your paying for someone else's research. I prefer pieced kits because of the bang per buck value. Other than that, Kits make good power too. Talk to RS_NW, Kevin Thomas, or various other's on this board.

Anyone who knows me, knows that Custom/DIY is my game, so my stuff isn't easily copy-able, but thats just my thing, i guess. However, i can give you direction if you need it.

same here, once youve done it, you would probably never bother purchasing a pre-made kit. Now I wish I did something more extreme and custom. The only reason I used WRX componants was because of $ and because I knew they would work.

Is the turbo in the stock WRX position. That looks like a '99 manifold (if i'm correct) that means that the outlet of the turbo sits nearly under the manifold. How'd you get the piping to curve enough for the intake.

how much did it cost to piece together all these parts? so your're running the Impreza L 2.2 N/A block and just running ej22t internals? im a little confused on that. i was looking for an idea of where to head with my car. I have a N/A ej22 too. But if it's expensive and hard to copy, then might as well not. how is it all holding up though? how long have you had it turbo'ed? Is it faster than a wrx?

Even though mine was from a kit, I guessed I must have messed up the installation. Because my engine bay is no way that clean looking. Yours almost looks stock, while mine looks DIY.

And yeah..White 2.5rs I got my name from the mother boards. Because I couldn't think of anything else.

brad, yes, im using your pipes still. I want to make new ones as soon as i get a new turbo. I am also thinking about a turbo-relocation. Its still in theory.

other guy,
I bought my block from Primative Racing. it is one of the only componants that i have not done myself, although, I wish I had, because now that i am officially a mechanic, I would have been able to do it. It is an EJ22 na block w/ ej22t pistons and o-ringed heads. I am running 12lbs boost, and plan on running more as soon as i get larger injectors. Ive been boosted for almost a year now. No major problems.

I have no solid evidence, but hte last cruise i went on, the WRX infront of me was going to slow, and the one behind me couldnt keep up. I had multiple WRX's come up to me and ask me how my car is so fast. Take that with a grain of salt, I could have been pinned against poor drivers.

As far as clearing the 98 manifold, I used mandral bent u-pipes and cut them so they would clear. Thats really all there is to it, it was very close, but it cleared.

I have been piecing my turbo kit together for 1 year now or so for my 01 2.5rs. I have stock wrx manifold, uppipe, downpipe, turbo, hks sequential, apexi turbo timer, frount mount, boost controller. I was wondering of any problems i may encounter i have a buddy giving me an sti crossmember so i can use my gutted stock upipe, all parts bought off ebay i have maybe 1200 into my kit sofar. If anyone can offer me and help or advice id appreciate it or possibly any other components i would need to purchase im still figuring out my fuel system and trying to find a engine manage ment system my safc wont help to much on this job. Thanks, DEREK

The turbo is approximately in the stock location relative to the intercooler. There is actually a suprising amount of room in front of the turbo for intake if you relocate the plug-pack for the wiring harness. On my car I used a rubberish type 90* elbow and there is no clearance problems what-so-ever. I'm assuming the 97 and 98 manifolds are essentially the same and I don't suspect many of the 2.2 manifolds would pose any more of a problem. Here is a picture of my car with a new set of pipes that place the turbo in basicly the identical location as the pipes on Jakes car. I made both sets:
