ej22 crank into ej25 block

Cheaper to just pop that 2.2 in it and leave the 2.5 block for when you have $$ to rebuild it. Fel-pro EJ22 head gaskets are $20 each at Autozone.

No offense, but boost is going the complete opposite direction. Forced induction needs a lot more to work than just a Turbo stuck on the engine. You need higher flow injectors, higher flow pump, intake parts, entirely new exhaust. Then you still need the right electronics to make it all work (ECU, sensors, etc), or some form of engine management.
If you want to go that route that's fine, there are plenty of options, but I don't think an Ej22 crank in a 2.5 block is going to work.
If you're really stuck on using the 2.5 block, just take it apart and rebuild it.
A set of ACL Race Bearings is like $40-50, need a few O rings from the dealer for the case halves, new head gaskets (again).
As for the 2.2. What does "in pieces" mean? Did you separate the block halves?

Also copper spray is a big no-no on these. The MLS gaskets already have a coating on them to help with sealing.

I say why mess with making a frankenstein motor when the EJ22 was one of the better designed engines? I'd rather have a EJ22 that I could break a timing belt on all day long and not bend valves, over a EJ25 hybrid engine that bends valves when the belt jumps time.
And BTW, Coppercoat isnt designed for all metal gaskets. That stuff was created for the old Graphite style head gaskets found on the EA82s. The one rule that I always stick to, if its got a metal gasket, you put it on dry. No sealer , no RTV, no Right Stuff (that goes for almost any gasket on the engine.) Never reuse a gasket or a seal. They are cheap enough that its pointless to put together an engine reusing old crap. I've started using the FelPro blue metal gaskets and have had ZERO issues with them leaking/causing HG leaks
