sounds like some kind of idea. i guess im going to have to look into that. i was thinking of possibly putting on 2.5 heads which would lower my compression ratio and turbo my 2.2 but i still dont no. this motor has no aftermarket parts. seems like if your a 2.2 non turbo subaru your kind of screwed

So how did the Delta cams make your car run? Anything to watch out for like Cels or install problems?

Say are you getting a spiff from Delta

Jeez louise, dude! You just posted a thread a few days ago and you were told that Delta makes cams for the 2.2l for $130!!!! TWE probably could make you some custom cams, but they would cost a lot more. There isn't much of a market for 2.2's, but at least Delta has us covered.

Sorry, I am running on too little sleep and was a bit cranky (no pun intended) this morning. I apologize for my frustrated reply.

99subi - your EJ22 should be a phase 2 head (ie: it should be using a roller rocker design, shared w/ the EJ25 SOHC head). You should be able to run the EJ25 SOHC cam offered by TWE.

I emailed Cobb about using the 2.5L cams in my OBS Phase II EJ22 about a year ago and they said that they wouldn't work but the guy didn't really convince me. I think either nobody has ever asked or they weren't sure and it was just easier to say no than have me buy their cams and have a problem.

The valve gear and layout appears to be identical. The EJ25 cams have a touch more lift and a degree or two more duration and overlap I think. Somebody out there must know for sure. If they do fit I'll bet that even the stock 2.5 cams would be worth a few HP.

The Phase 2 2.2L SOHC share the same valvetrain design as the Phase 2 2.5L SOHC. Hence you'll be able to use cams designed for the EJ25 SOHC in your EJ22.

99subi - who'd you talk to there? It's probably best to email them on their tech email address.
