Default help eg33 vs ej20g suggestions

here is were i stand

my goals are
streetability above all.
around 300 to 350 whp
a well balanced fun car to drive.
chassis to be used is a 97 4 door im
preza l

good start to my goals with boost already and a strong track record.
bolt on and
parts compatability is nice
goal is easy to obtain
relatively straight forward swa
p for a good $ and it comes with a resilient tranny and differential
boost is sweet
will be using ROBs chi
p and wire prep service for 600
for full engine turbo tranny rear diff and shafts and electronics 2200 shipped
total swap cost with fluids and other nickle and dime stuff
about 3300.

great tq and h
fits in the car but requires some adjustments and extra stuff to make it ha
extra weight over the front of the car.
sounds amazing
the eg33 is good with low to medium levels of boost in stock trim.
needs radiator mods and fans etc
wiring is very tricky and would be doing in myself
lack of su
pport on tuning and parts
eg33 can be bought for around 700
new fans 120
better tranny as mine is due to be re
placed say 1000
basic swa
p to be around 2500 after nickle and diming of couse

thoughts and or hel
p would be good. these numbers are to get the swaps in the car and running right. not necessarily hitting my goals. i would be of corse doing some fabricating and modding to hit the goals. i am finally getting close to deciding and would like input, i do like to be unique but i also want reliability and ease of working on it later. i am familiar withe the world of honda swap as i have done many. some of the hard ones as well such as a sick h2b swap and a j series. and i have build a supra mk3 as well that made 426 to the wheels. but subaru is new to me so any input will be helpful.

If you really want 300 to 350 whp an eg33 will cost much more. 360 crank hp out of a eg33 is really starting to push the internals because of the 10 to 1 compression ratio. There seems to be almost a complete path laid out for the eg33 which is a huge improvement from only a couple years ago, but it would be costly. ECU tune ecu, injectors, fuel pump, and new Z32 maf = $800, all the piping and inter cooler= $800, exhaust header no idea. Unless you feel comfortable doing a lot of the work your self I would stay away from the eg33. The ej20g has every thing already done. Every thing is off the self and the engine was intended for boost, much easier to deal with. Plus its lighter.

search FIRST, then PM!!!


turbo EG at those levels is a waste of potential, extra weight and extra money.

When I first saw the title I was thinking EJ20 and NA build on an EG33...
