Ive been searching and I guess ive been looking in the wrong places since it thought the STI was a 2.5 for version 4 but all Ive been finding is Ej20t.. can someone please set me straight...I have never messed with turbo apps before and am stumped. Maybe Matt Monson or Jay Storm can comment if they stumble across this thread.
where are you getting your valves from? i have a set of v4 sti heads that are being rebuilt and im told i need 4 intake and 4 exhaust valves. i got a price from a dealer in japan of $550 for the valves, not including tax or shipping.
im probably going to have custom valves made unless i can find the oem ones for substantially cheaper. my engine came from a gc8e4ed model which apparently has the engine with the most expensive replacement parts ever made...
