Yeah, thats why I havent installed mine. I dont really want a boost leak.
I thought about modding it so that I could put a valve seal around the stem but havent got around to it.

the only prob I see is that lower nipple may leak boost(maybe affect your MBC). It does(leak boost) on my Type-S.

Dont use Ej22t head gaskets, they will lower your compression and you will lose power. Yes, reuse head bolts. Some may argue, but the factory service manual say nothing about replacing them. And its always very clear when you must not reuse something. Its a Phase I head. Also, the cheapest way to do...

Everything that is mechanical bolts up, i.e. water pump oil pan, transmission ect. You will need the dohc intake mainfold. But you can use almost all of the sensors off the 94 intake. With the exception of maybe the fuel rails, im not sure. You will want to use your existing harness and sensors. The...

DO NOT mix injectors. You will end up running lean in the cylinder that you installed the pink injector. On boost you could run lean and burn something up.

Use permatex Ultra Grey, But its very imprtant not to use too much. Untold engine damage can ensue.

It would be a fun project to do for the "hell of it". But there is no need. You can buy eBay BOVs, that will likely work better than your homegrown one will, for very cheap.
I have a friend that made one, we still joke about it. He ended up buying one.

I will say the above is for newer twin turbos, so you may not have all those features. Which will make it a bit easier.

There arnt that many Pros to the DOHC compared to the Phase II 2.5 unless you are going to turbo. I would definatly do the borla, delta, and a cold air intake and be done with it. You can do that for well under a grand.

Well Ricky Martin Legacy :wink: You most likely have an EJ22E. If you look at the plate on the drivers side front strut tower(under the hood) it will show an engine code.

^Cool

UPDATE: Now Running :)
More Observations: At .003in piston clearance there is some slight piston slap(knocking noise) at start up. This was worriesome at first, becuase it sounds alot like a very slight rod knock. But the sound goes away in a few minutes, after the pistons warm up a bit.

G and H injectors are probably identical. And yes they will be a great choice. I think, those injectors are good to about 300cHP MAX.

You should really look into getting an EJ20g ECU, if you dont already.

Back on track:

I think the VF-8 is an excellent choice.
Spools quick on the 2.2 and is good for 16-17psi.(probably more)

The following only applies to ATMO vented BOV: I have found that you need to have an adjustable one. This way you can adjust it so that its not open at an idle. However, you also need it to be stiff enough that it doesnt open with the vacuum you have when you decelerate in gear. This could be anywhe...

No, you cant use anything for a turbo. That is, without changing tranny cases. Doug highly recomends the kennedy 6-puck. you will probobly need the flywheel and pressure plate from a 2.5 NA. Or, since you will probobly have to change your PP and FW anyway, you could go with an ACT kit. OR if you are...
