what one can get out of a "stock" frankie, is maybe 175chp. That is NOT AWHP
The stock 2.5 makes about 165, and is peaky. With the EJ22 heads, it loses it peakyness and gains a bump in compression.
Cometic gaskets makes a great set of conversion gaskets for this build. they have the bore size of the 2.5 with the coolant ports of the 2.2. and they are the correct thickness at .040 in. too thin and the pistons will hit the heads on an EJ25D. The pistons clear the deck sometimes called "peeping tom" pistons.
