I think that I will just find a Stock engine for now, But does anybody have any suggestion about what I should get for a stock EJ20 to be able to hold a 20G Turbo or What could I add and replace to make the engine hold up?

30+ thousand miles on a stock block and 20G, but of course mine is a 2.5l for what difference that makes. Its all in the tune and how well it is kept. Why a 20G, whats your goal?

Joshua,
The 20G is what I have now. I just wanted to awake the car and give a little more than what it had. I guess that I must have given it too much and now I have 2 cracked heads and part of the cylinder wall chipped away. So, now I need a new engine. Heck, I may even get the 2.5 Block and put in. I'm in the process of looking for an engine now. I just don't wanna make the same mistake twice.

Oh ok, got you, I must have missed or misread along the way. My apologies. At a minimum tho look it rods and pistons. Depending on the budget look into valves and that, and maybe even a better cam depending on what you are looking for out the the setup.

Joshua,
Thanks for the advice. I just found a short block that Im going to pickup this Sunday. It's out of a 04" WRX. So, at least I'll have that and then I can start working on other things. I definitely wanna add a few things to the block before I put it in. What cam, valves, rods, pistons, and even Injectors would you suggest to put in?

Really that depends on a few things:
1) What are your goals with the car?
2) How much can your really afford to spend?
3) Read the first 2 very carefully.

PSINUSE,
My goals with this car that I have now is to be around 325-350 horse power. I don't mind spending some money, but I don't wanna go too crazy with the cash. Later on, when I get another Subbie; than I want to build that one up and make that my weekend only car.

Crank or wheel hp? I'd say at the most STi rods and forged pistons and you'd be okay at that power level. Injectors 750-800cc would get you there with a little head room.

Psinuse,
I would like for it to be at the Wheels, and when I take my car to the track for the 1/4 mile; I would like for it to be around the mid to high 12's. Do you think that 1200cc injectors would be too much for now? or just go with the 750-800cc ones?
Thanks

1200's are overkill. You should be fine with 750-800's

Pffft you could hit high 12's easily on less power.

Hi guys! I just got my short block on Sunday and now I need to get a set of Heads. I was wondering if I get a set of STI heads or another 2.5 heads if it would work or would I have to change everything around.

Different heads are not plug and play.
