Legacy turbo legacy

is it possible to put an older legacy turbo in a 95' legacy 2.2l without having to change alot of stuff like fuel pump and injectors. or is it better to do a turbo motor swap.thanks

Dont even try. Just find yourself a 91 to 94 Legacy Turbo and fix it up. Motor swaps are for the devil. Once you pull that ej22T you are giong to have to change about every sectoin of wiring because it will be so brittle and old.

But if you do want to try it, I have an ecu harness that lets you run an ej22T off of a 95 Legacy ECU harness. I had it custom made, but I had problems with the IAC and a few other things.

I'm with subiekid- if you want turbo without the turbo headache then sell your BD for a BC or a BF. Thats what I did/am doing.

To use OEM parts from an ej22T you are going to need a turbo cross member, headers, up-pipe, turbo, oilpan, injectors/fuel rails, parts of an intake...

On top of that you still need some sort of ecu to retard timing and deal with fuel. You will only be able to run about 6 psi since you will be running a high CR and a block not made for boost.

i think for what you want a ej25 would be a better replacement.

but as this is the other turbo forum.

yes it can be done you will need a turbo cross member all the exhaust plumbing and alot of other goodies. but i would keep it under 6 pounds of boost. that is why i say go for the ej25.

If you decide you want to do this I have the following for sale from a '93 Legacy Turbo:
crossmember
headers
up-pipe
Turbo
downpipe

What you would need to sort out is intake plumbing and coolant lines and oil lines...

95legacykid- I turbo'd my '95 legacy and the only problem I ran into was a broken ring on #4 piston (which came from too little fuel and a 15psi boost spike).
Other than that, I used the following:

Custom uppipe that ran from the factory manifold, behind the pass. side axle, and to the turbo.
Custom downpipe that went from the turbo down into the exhaust
(I just took out the front cat and replaced it with an uppipe/downpipe)
Factory EJ22T turbo-to-throttlebody elbow and airfilter-to-turbo elblow (which can both be custom plumbed at your local exhaust or fab shop, and will need to be custom if you want to run a FMIC)
EJ22T pink-top 340cc injectors
S-AFC II
Stock BOV
No intercooler

I street tuned the whole setup and it ran pretty well. Like I said- it would still be together if not for the wastegate line coming off and the turbo hitting 15 psi.
Turboing the stock EJ22EZ is totally do-able.
As for you haters that say "Ohh- but the EJ22E is an open deck.. blah blah blah," well, so is the EJ257, the EJ20, and every other block except the Type-RA, EJ22T, and the other specialty pieces that are sold JDM/AUDM/EUDM.
Everything cost me less than $1,000.
$320 for S-AFCII
$120 for injectors/intake pieces
$100 for up/down pipes (built them myself from mandrel bends from JC Whitney)
$150 odds and ends (braided oil line, extra valve cover for oil return, gaskets, hoses, trial-and-error pieces, etc)
