Default ej22t teardown and rebuild pics

In the process of tearing down, and now rebuilding the ej22t I'm going to put in my legacy.

I've taken a bunch of pics, for those that would like to see what's involved in rebuilding an engine.

I'll be updating pics as I go along.

where did you source your new internals? are you going back with the stock stuff (from my understanding a good choice).. cause I can't find any stock subaru engine parts or kits. I guess a dealer?

Yeah, just stock stuff. Yeah I'm just getting it from the dealer. Pistons I'm getting from crawford since they have a bunch of stock pistons for the ej22t motors.

yeah.....more time, and more money.

Not sure how much I could bore it, but I talked to CCR engines in colorado, and they said it should be fine, so I'm just going to use stock stuff.

Plus they mentioned that boring them can cause them to run hotter.

Darn, it's a bit beat up, but it's just a little scratch. I still see the honing marks in my EJ22T, except the piston ring lines like yours up and down the cylinder.

I still need to take apart mine! *sigh* Time to find some time...it's just one of those things... "...yes I'm going to do it..." but we never get to it.

Seems to be coming along great!

I just got the block back from the machine shop. They re-honed it. The bore is about 2 thousandths larger after re-honing then what the spec is....but that shouldn't be too big a deal. I'm going to up-size to the std-A sized pistons. It'll give me an extra 4 ten thousandths....which isn't much...but what the hey.

Actually....I have a set of new ej22t pistons I just got. There's definitely some sort of coating on the top half of the piston. I'll get some pics, and post when they go up.

That's to remove the piston wrist pins. I really need a slightly smaller dia piece of round bar, but I made that work.

Updated the pics with new pistons. You can see the coating on the piston.

hmmm very interesting. I stand corrected, there is some kind of coating on the top part of the piston. Moly coating is usually applied to the skirts to reduce friction. I would say the coating is not moly since there is no friction on that part of the piston. Maybe some kind of heat coating. I guess all the used pistons I have pulled out of engines has burnt this coating off.

I replaced a lot of various parts that either weren't there, or needed to be replaced.

Head work & complete gasket kit was around $600.

When I'm done, I'll do a full write-up and a breakdown of the costs.

Yeah the borlas are much lighter. I'm going to put the stock headers in initially. Some people have mentioned it doesn't spool as quickly with aftermarket headers.

I started to put the block back together today. Ended up breaking one of the outer bolts that hold the exterior of the case together. I had to take the block apart again, and luckily I was able to use a set of extracters to get the broken bolt out.
