EJ22 (only offered in Outback in 1996
5 spd
Cold weather package (heated mirrors, heated leather, block heater)

I am currently at a crossroads. I have two different modification paths I can take so am currently weighing my options.

Option 1
High compression frankenstein consisting of:
EJ18 heads
Delta cams

Option 2
Turbo build consisting of :
'06 wrx TD04 turbo and TMIC
'02 wrx exhaust manifold

I already have a '02 wrx oil pump and '07 wrx fuel pump installed.

Actually frankenstein is cheaper, heads are free. I just don't think I would be satisfied with it. Picking up turbo and tmic tomorrow. Somebody offered me a free exhaust manifold too

I just need to figure out what to do about exhaust since I currently have single port heads

Already got your fuel pump so it only makes sense to take the turbo too

Haha now you're talking. Unfortunately I need to get this done for under $500. Anybody in Cali got a turbo back exhaust they would like to donate or sell real cheap?
