Default 2.0L WRX Turbo on 2.2L Outback

Have opportunity to buy a compete turbo system off of a 2.0 WRX engine. Am thinking of buying it and putting it on my 2.2L Outback engine. Has anyone done this? What are the pros and cons? How much has to be changed? Any info or direction to look would be awesome.

my 97 obs is getting a 2.0 wrx swap, i had the opportunity to get a turbo system for the stock ej22e but was heavily advised against it. ive heard from people with experience that say the na engine will become very unreliable with forced induction. imo save your money for the swap, and take a big step up in aftermarket support, reliability, just not in displacement

Not as cheap or easy as it may seem at first. Need to change the crossmember to the turbo one. You need all the turbo intake plumbing and not just the uppipe, downpipe, intercooler and turbo. You also need to address coolant and oiling for the turbo, which will all be custom work.

Uniquemotorsports makes some parts to make it easier and avoid changing crossmembers. But unless you have plans to put a dedicated turbo engine in there later, none of it is worth the effort, IMO. You are better off buying a kit from FAT, or finding a used PDM, LudeSpeed, etc kit on E-bay or in the classifieds. Replacement EJ22's are cheap if you pop it.

We are about to start a project with a PDM turbo kit with VF-23 turbo on an Ej22E. But that will be for shorterm fun while we build an Ej257 bottom end with SOHC Ej25 heads. And full standalone EM is on the agenda as well. Figure another grand or so for the EM...

had that setup, and it worked well. basically it was rs power at 7ish psi. above that is a problem without proper EM. but you can do it, been there done that! swapping v4 sti as soon as it arrives. but you can do it under $500 if you can scrounge parts well. i did it for $70 piping, adapters, lil stuff like that(had turbo,ic, etc. to start) you can do it easily, search around you'll find the info needed round here! -keith
