    options to turbocharged a BE

    Hey I'm trying to get a plan together to turn my BE 2000 legacy GT w/5spd. It has a ej252, with a ty754 behind it. I'm curious if it would be easier to find a donor 2.5 turbo car and use the guts from that to piece together what I'm looking for. Also I could go buy new part to add to my original engine.Thanks.

    Check out my build thread on my 2003 wagon, it's not complete yet but I'm building a hybrid 22e block with the 25 heads.

    This hybrid motor gives you a great compression ratio for turbo charging and I only paid 150 for my ej22e motor.

    The ej251/2 has a pretty high compression ratio so anything more than about 5psi and your asking for trouble.

    the theoretical "Easiest" might me to find a turbo baja, rip all the wiring out, and put in an EJ255/EJ257 motor
    or have iWire do your harness for you
