Default 124k ej22t,g,z,abcdef......whatever turbo legacy block

I am looking at doing the turbo Legacy block swap into my WRX soon and have found a used block for a decent price. It has 124k miles on it and I was wondering, as a general rule of thumb, what I would need to replace. I will get better pistons at least, but I don't know if the rest of the internals should be replaced. Should the rods and crank and bearings be ok after 124k miles?
thanks
jason

All seals, gaskets, rings and bearings have to be replaced! Its not a rebuild without it.

The only thing thats great about the EJ22T is the bare block. The rest of the internals can hold their own, but I'd replace just about everything on a 124k mile motor. The crank should be fine. Take all your measurements after its been torn down and see if they're in spec. You could also go with a EJ25 (Phase I, IIRC?) crank and end up with a 2.4l motor. You also need to take measurements of the cylinders to see if they need to be bored.

And whats a decent price?

eastcoastbumps, I thought I found one for $400 shipped but that turned out to be a non-turbo block. The 124k one is $450, not including shipping. Do you know of a better/cheaper source?

thats a good price. the ej22t block and its internals are excellent, but they give a very low compression ratio.

Yup, has to be a phase I, because the phase IIs have the thrust bearing in a different location.

$450 is very reasonable.

strong motors.....mine had 212K on the odometer when I took it out of a junkyard car, it's heading for 300k and I've never opened the motor (that happens this winter).

But if your just using the block replace all the seals/gaskets and inspect the rest for wear.

I undertsand that the 2.2L block is strong but why swap it into a WRX, is the displacement loss worth it?

i thought that the lower the compression the more boost you could run. Correct me if i am wrong but a EJ22T runs 8.0:1 so wouldnt that be better?

lower CR helps with higher boost levels(prevents detonation). especially if your running crappy gas! the sti has higher CR than wrx does. i'm running high(for a turbo) CR in my OBS-t. i run good gas 90+ and sometimes octane booster for crappy fill ups. i've had no prob. but turn up the boost and say bye to my motor. keep the ratio low and live happily!
ej22t block is what is good about it nothing else. i'd still rather have an ej257 short block swap. more $$ but they still produce them new. if you get ej22t it's probably still stronger than stock wrx in the long run. so you're going in the right direction high, HP and durability!
