Easiest way to have 20 psi in an EJ22T?

I have an EJ22T in my bug and I was wondering what would be the easiest way to get 20 psi? I understand that the ECU will not like any more than 10 psi and so, what would be the best ecu to use and what need I in order to do this. Thanks in advance.

The car now runs, it did not have power to the injectors power feed wire. Now that the engine runs I must chase a vacuum leak.

I am getting spark, the fuel pump runs as it should. I need to determine why the injectors will not fire.

Re: EJ22T ECU Wiring Questions - Engine swap to bug

I now have the timing belt installed and it is correct but the car does not start. It was actually pretty easy to install the belt with the way the engine is exposed in the back of the car. I have changed the spark plugs to NGK Iridiums, the existing ones turned out to be black and I dont know how o...

Re: EJ22T ECU Wiring Questions - Engine swap to bug

FYI - I got the ECU to boot, check engine light comes on and the fuel pump cycles.

My 6 year old placed something on the exposed timing belt which was sucked into the pulley and snapped the belt. I will replace the belt once it stops raining and hopefully start the car.

Thanks for the help.

Re: EJ22T ECU Wiring Questions - Engine swap to bug

Thank you for the input. In my research I concluded that I should have 12 volts going to the light green wire and I glad to see the confirmation.
