Depends on cash flow, a good running ea82t could be had pretty cheap.(around here anyways.)
Or you could find a N/A block and make it turbo. it would also raise the compression ratio.

rebuilding would work too but it might start costing more than a donor engine.

If you have some money to kick around then obviously get the ej22t.:-p
that thing would be "rally" fast.

Awesome car btw!

I'm not looking into just swapping engines (ea82t). Or building a N/A block to become turbo (too much work and non reliable). If I stuck with the ea82t, it would be rebuilt.

I'm even considering buying another 22t (keeping the one for the brat on the side). And rebuilding that, then swapping it in...

I don't want the hassle of having a engine fail on me, if I don't know the history on it... Even tho it's more money up front it could save me later.

Thanks! I love it, still got a couple things I wanna do after the engine deal tho! :headbang:

Ok so i dont know if this has been covered... but

EJ22t Swap... do you have to swap the legacy crossmember? YES, or NO?
