Swaping turbo from 2.2t into 1.8t

Recommended Posts

Ok.. i remember (like 1999) back in the day someone going over the steps to change out the turbo from an 2.2t into an RX..

 

 

Well i got back from the junkyard..and 2.2t turbo in hand with what i vaugely remembered.. so i removed my 1.8t Turbo..to find..they are pretty close..but no where near to fitting..

 

So at this point.. it looks like i'm going to need a 2.2t Down pipe and up-pipe..???

 

or

 

would it be easier to have a shop make new flanges and weld em to the old pipes?

 

Any info..much apreciated.

Thanks SUperDave.. but i'm not talking all that.. (i'm doing the same swap you did but putting it into my 91 Legacy SS) I'm just transplanting the Turbo from a 2.2t to my 1.8t.. all the oil lines and colling lines fit.. it's just the up-pipe and down pipe are WAY off.
