The reason, huh? Well, when the block I had turned into a giant's paperweight, I called Meyagi. Meyagi is a member on here who knows quite a lot, although he isn't active anymore. He has the same set up, wrx heads and bits with the 2.2 block at it's core. He has it in his Ken Block car and has beaten the snot out of it for three years, he told me. He said it's super reliable so long as you don't try to over do the power to it. He was using a used block, and I got mine brand new from the dealer.Is your 2.2 block just a stock ej22 or the mid 90s closed deck. I would like to learn more about the reason you used a 2.2
If you have the know how and already have the parts, I'd recommend going for it. I don't have a single complaint so far and mine has about 12 k miles on it.Well I have lots of parts in my garage. If you see my ride its a work in progress but this motor is an all stock shortblock and fresh heads.I have a 99 2.2 longblock,ej255longblock, and two compeat turbo motors that are dead.
Thinking of doing a build over the winter. I'm still new to turbo but I don't tiptoe I jump in full force and spend way to much. Spent like 18k in the past year on toys and parts.
That they do. Lucky for me I inherited my accessport with the car. Unlucky for me I also inherited the problems no one knew about haha. I ended up dishing out about 800 to Kinetic because they found a boost leak and I had a very wobbly wheel due to a bearing and some other things. They did good work its just expensive.I ordered the newest access port 600+ 100 for a base tune. Then I get 100 off my 500.00 tune. Times Changing prices go up on everything
I knew I would get that backwards haha.Just fyi, the only 2.2 blocks that are closed deck are the early legacy turbo 2.2's. All the rest are open deck. But no doubt they can hold up well. The 2.5 blocks are open deck as well, even the turbo ones are only semi closed.
