Default 96 STi Type RA ej207 swap

Hi all!

I have recently completed my ej207 v8 swap in to 96 JDM STi Type RA and wanted to contribute to this forum.

It all started with me blowing my 4th motor in 4 years. This time it was ej20g in my STi RA.

Here is what it sounded like.

After doing plenty of research I have decided to swap ej207 in. I wanted to do all the work myself and learn something new on the way. Ive researched vendors and poked Robert from JDM Racing Motors for help. I ended up buying v8 ej207 with bunch of extra stuff I needed for swap. Before the engine arrived I have spent all my free time doing research on here and NES.

My budget was set at 5k and I have broken through that barrier fairly easy. It just felt like a great opportunity to get some extra parts in while the engine was out.

I have also underestimated the harness merge, and ended up going to iWire for help.

The most time consuming part of the whole swap was the harness and dashboard work. The engine side of swap is as easy as take one engine out and put another engine in.

With plenty of help from the forums and advice from JDM Racing Motors and iWire I have successfully competed the swap in 2 months (working only about 5 hours a week on it). The engine feels great and is very smooth. All electrical works great too. Im looking forward to tuning it and taking it to Rallycross and Autocross.
