EJ22 Twin turbo build

Postby redrum » March 4th, 2016, 12:33 pm

All the Subaru guru's I eagerly await your guidance, thoughts, advise on the following build. I have already bought a donor Subaru impreza 2008 hatchback Gh2 model fwd engine EL15 with damaged block. The transplant is from a foreign used legacy BH5 Twin turbo EJ22 with gear box. Now I am getting everything for the conversion engine and box, axles, 4wd disc brakes, harness, brain, complete diff, and even tein shocks, also fuel pump. I am going to view the engine today in the bamboo, it should be home by next week...
Pic's of the build will be posted, however I am in search of a reliable and reasonable mechanic preferably from south who has done a similar build...

I wouldn't advise on a twin turbo though, there is a black box with vacuum lines that can be very hard to troubleshoot.
Single turbo is the way to go, less headache.

I spoke to bird about the transplant, he told me that the engine was too old, and it would be difficult to get everything working......and that I may encounter problems later on.....
