EJ20 open deck block

a while ago, there were a few threads regaurding the strength of the EJ20 block. on a daily driver basis, can the factory open deck EJ20 take 350-375 AWHP? this would be attainable with a 2.2l stroker kit, FP Green or Deadbolt 20G turbo, and would only need an RA gear set in the trans. at 350 AWHP the car would be a force to recon with on the street, yet still very "streetable."

any thoughts? thye idea of spending the money on a motor swap is VERY un-apealing to me.

350awhp on stock internals no. it might last for about a week. but with the stroker kit yeah u should have problems with that. even with a FP green you should be able to produce more power then 350 whp.

so the block wont hold it? the stroker kit will take care of all the internals, and i dont see any issues with the heads, just the block.

The Ej20 will hold 350whp easily...I am doing it right now with all stock internals on 18psi with 91 octane and 22psi with 110 octane

A friend of mine was running about 325whp on his stock block w/ a PE1820. His weak point was the trans, which he replaced with a STi 6-speed.

the ej 205 its much stronger than people think , the key its the tuning , for instance ive seen sotckers with big turbos and all the supporting mods hitting close to 400whp and passing that mark (dyno jet) on race gas , what breaks easy is the tranny. my car for instance has the ej 205 w pistons and rods , all valve train stock ,big turbo , massive gadiel tuning , and all the supporting mods, its a day driver with 411whp and a night warrior with race fuel 508 whp . so dont under estimate the open deck , I havent and im having a blast for a year now with this power level, before thet withthe other set up my whp on pump was 360 and on race 437whp , remem ber no NOS.
