Of couse, you could always go standalone or fit a piggyback of sorts, but finding support is much harder for the older ECUs (in the USA) than the newer ECUs, and standalone setups are $$$.
Good point brought up here actually, the fact that it's going to be a PITA to tune a V6 engine versus a V7 or V8... hmmm

i think right when u buy the motor, u have to send the ecu to a vendor to get it ecutek'd for 93 octane instead of the 98 octane or wahtever. So that would suck if u had the v.6 all ready in ur car but couldnt find anyone to ecutek it for 93 octane since it uses older software.

stop debating and get the v.7

Well it's 98 RON they use. Sunoco has said their 94 is 99 RON. People have used 93 and been plenty fine. Some have also used 92 and been ok. If anything i'd save the money and use GTA fuel enhancer, turn down the boost, or just let the ecu do it's thing. In a stock setup the ecu will adapt.

The math works out to about the same 98 RON = ~93 of ours but a reflash isnt hard or expencive so why not? More then likely make more power after too...

You'd be surprised how much 595 seems after dropping thousands to get a swap. More than likely he'll be happy with the power for a while coming from an RS. Plus you start to figure whats' the point of a plain reflash, i should get exhaust too. It's all well and good to want to do things the best possible way, and as thorough as possible, but sometimes it's just not possible, smart, or worth it. Ie. It took me almost a year to decide to get a reflash. I had to spend money on dealing with problems associated with the swap, and for a long time i didn't feel it was worth 595 without other mods.

Maybe I will get a reflash But we do have 93 and 94 octane here, so.

Anyway, next question... Screw the V6 cause that's just going to be a PITA to find. Next, between a JDM V7 and a JDM V8 engine, does anyone know the wiring diffferences?

I dont belive there is much difference wireing wise... but there is a **** load of difference motor wise. Larger port heads, more aggresive cams, twin scroll, new intake manifold(ver 7s run a hotter plug in number 4. The ver 8 does not ), twin scrool... um cast pistons....

You guys dont even have the engine in your car yet and you are talking tuning? If you can afford a Ver7 or 8 and can afford the mods to warrant a ecu reflash then you can afford the reflash. So you guys are finding Ver 7 and 8 engines? how much $$$? And how complete?

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!

#1 Why did you bump a thread from 2004?

#2 Did every last one of all Japanese people hate the Bugeye? Bold statement.

#3 There is no S206. They stopped at S204 and went to the GRB and R205 ect carried on

Worst thread bump ever. lol

Let me get this straight, there were an abundance of V7 and 8's because they were too heavy? Meaning Japanese people purchased the car, thought crap this car is slow, I should export the motor and crush the car.

V7 works with open source so no need to buy Apexi. Talk about saving money.

One of the main benefits of getting an EJ207 is so you don't have to rebuild the bottom end.

Now as far as looks? You can't beat a V6 STi.

In Japan, people didn't like the Ver7 because they thought it was ugly, and for the reason that it went from the lightweight Gc8, to a big bulky Sedan only car. I'm not saying that the Ver7 engine isn't good, its probably the best stock JDM STi engine made, besides the S206. I just like the ver6 better because when its broke down, its basically the same engine as its predecessor, but w/o valve control and a twin scroll. When you are building the bottom end though, ur starting with the same block. It's a personal preference. I've built a 20g/k/ v6/7/9 and a 257. The Ver6 was by far my favorite build. I think the TY754VB1EA is the best tranny as well. Jus my opinion bro.
But still doesn't change the fact of how unpopular the Bugeye's are in Japan.

All you people do is talk smack and try to make others look stupid. The way I see it, is if your friend said somethin that u disagree with, ur not Guna call them an idiot and try to make them look dumb. So show respect, and you just might get it back.

Why do you care wtf I do? If you weren't so ignorant, and smart enough to do research on something, and not just talk outta ur azz, you'd know that there IS an S206. try showing respect, and not just jumping the gun on trying to prove someone else wrong. It only makes u look stupid.
