As lovely as a Ej207 sounds in all its glory, when it is time for me to swap blocks I have to lean more towards the 2.5L. Around where I live and the way I drive, I don't quite think I could take full advantage of a 8500 + rev limiter as much as I could with the extra torque of .5L.
To utilize a range that high on the EJ207, you would also need a bigger turbo which will keep pushing the power curve further to the right the bigger you go. I'm sure these motors sing from 4k on up but while I am not trying to get my gihugenormous turbo spooled and watch my fuel gauge plummet, I would like to feel some down low torque.
