Nice thread btw... subscribing to it, as I may go this route on my bugeye in the future. Did the motor come with a good engine wiring harness?
Thanks, I will try my best to chronicle all the little hiccups as I go along. My swap didn't come with the line that housed the restrictor pill, so I thought about swapping over the lines from the EJ205. But that line pictured above broke, going to the factory BCS. Since that line broke, I decided to order a new one to replace all three lines as they become brittle over time from age and extreme heat. If you're swapping over to the EJ207, make sure you're using the lines that comes with the VF30 or order a new hose assembly.
Hose Assembly Part No.: 14447AA090 from 04 Sti. This is for a VF39 turbo.
