Piston wrist pin - doesn't that mean just pulling one of the heads and replacing the part(s)? You might even be able to do it without pulling the engine, if I recall correctly....

So how much you looking at spending to get a EJ25 that is built for boost? Or are you going to check out a 2.2L turbo motor with the EJ25 heads?

Tic Tac sir?

I saw he was running a 50 shot and wondered if that did it.

Unless you damaged your bore or connecting rod (we'll just assume that your crank is fine) you can replace the piston and the wrist pin without even splitting the block. No need to have it completely rebuilt unless you want to.
