Does anybody on here know off the top of their heads if there is a difference between a 2.2 non turbo and a 2.2 turbo transmission? Early 90s Legacy.

Automatic or 5-speed?? What difference(s) are you referring to? Interchange /Swappability or internal workings?

 

No offense to GD, but I put an Automatic turbo trans  in my '90 NON-turbo and ran fine before and after I swapped in the turbo engine. You may want to source a TCM / TCU (trans computer) from a turbo, too, but that's not a deal-breaker.

 

All '91-'94 Automatics and 5-speeds EJ22T /  turbo transmissions - '91-'94 Sport Sedan and '92'-'94 Touring Wagon - were  3.9 Final drive ratio.

 

If yours is an AUTOMATIC  w/the EJ22e (non-turbo) '90-'91 or '95-'99(?) it's a 4.11 FD ratio.

 

Tangent: Rumor is the SVX transmission is the same as the turbo w/a different FD ratio...but most SVX transmissions are trashed by now.

Completely different and not compatible.

sorry but no.

 

There are some internal differences, but very small.  They are essentially the same trans and will run fine as long as you swap the TCU as well and match final drive.

 

Used Non-turbo trans in a turbo (swapped to 4.11), and used turbo 3.9 trans in a non-turbo legacy sedan with no issues.

I'm talking manual. They are cable push clutch on NA and hydraulic pull clutch on Turbo. The auto's are of course the same except for final drive.

 

You could convert pedal assembly, etc. But it's not a bolt in.
