This whole thread cracked me up! I think the Ver6 RA swap is great! And it came with a vf29, not vf28. It's almost exactly like the vf30. Was it really that hard to find a Ver6 back in 04? I know there were an abundance of 7&8's because everyone in Japan hated the Bugeye's because they were considered the "Death" of the light weight gc8. Anyone doing a swap into a gc chassis, should definitely go with the ej207dw2pr! It's the exact same engine as the Ver7, but w/o AVCS. And if you plan on building the bottom end anyways, its pointless to spend more money on an engine that only cost more because of the parts you will be replacing. So save the loot, get a Ver6, spend the extra you saved on new internals, and a Apexi power fc! You will be smoking any Ver7 out there! I think that the Ver6 STi RA WRC limited is the greatest Subaru ever made, with one exception..S206!
