Ok...here are some options I have in front of me, and for the life of me, I cant seem to settle on any of them for more than 3 minutes at a time.

1. EA82T...stock ECU, like I was doing 1.5 years ago...
2. EA82T...MegaSquirt....
3. EA82T...AEM 30-1810 EMS....
3. EA82 NA...MegaSquirt...
4. EA82 NA...AEM 30-1810 EMS...
5. EA82 NA....stock ECU.....

6. EJ22E...AEM EMS...
7. EJ22E...Stock ECU...

8. EJ251...AEM EMS...
9. EJ251...Stock ECU...

What I have:

Complete EJ22E (N/A)
EJ25x's in peices all around (Can build complete EJ25x with SOHC or DOHC heads)
Enough peices to put together another EA82T....
Enough peices to put together an EA82 N/A

Stock ECU for RX.
Stock ECU for EJ22E and EJ25D.
Plug and Play MegaSquirt for RX.
AEM 30-1810 EMS Box for USDM SUBARU Impreza WRX, EJ205.

Headers and DP's for EA82T
Borla Header for EA82 NA single port
Borla Header for EJxxx NA Dual port

and blah blah blah related to those engines.

I also have a complete 2.5 RS transmission...and an EJ-EA adapter plate....and and and and....

What ta do...what ta do....

Dude, Will, stop beating around the bush. Other people here are beating you to it!! Do a EJ Swap, and be done with it.

just get off the fince. get your but in gear. and build that car.

i know at one time you had one hell of an EA82t. but since that blew up, it seams you have been all talk and no action. lets see some action, we all know you can do it.

my $0.02, go EJ

DOHC ej251 with thin HG's, and AEM though a stock ecu would work.
if you have a nice high CR, a good tune, some cams, you should be up at 200hp.
use teh 2.5RS trans, more strength.
then get a borla header and stick a cat then a glasspack on the collecter and call it good.

or what about a megasquirted EJ? I know it has been done, you would just have to go to EDIS.

I'd go this route. Nowhere near enough high-comp NA Subies out there.

yeah, ej22e/ej25 is ok but there are better NA buildups especially given the parts that WJM says he has to work with.

Will, do you have any other cars? Obviously you want it to be a street car, right? EJ's with all the parts mixed around seems like fun, With what you have I would personally do a EJ25t dohc... But it depends on what other cars you have to drive. You don't want two cars that are the same(ish) to drive. Difference is nice.

well since you already made your decision, i say EJ22 heads on the Ej25 block, phase I block has to use DOHC EJ25 HG, phase II block can use the thin SOHC HG. you have to run premium, but its not like you weren't already..............
