Check out the garage build in this thread. Some serious planing involved in this.

Fantastic find Dom,

I'm signing up for that site to get some ideas for my future garage-ma-hall.

Thanks for sharing.

Just watched that speed kills, thanks Rakaz.
It's nice when motivated people take the time to organize information in such a way that's very informative, thorough, and entertaining.

I foresee big changes coming with spectators standing so close after this incident. Horrifying. To think that a person would be allowed to be standing there with toddlers when this occurs is unthinkable. Common sense isn't so common anymore.

I hope there aren't big changes honestly. People need to realize and accept that with some spectator sports there is going to be some risk. F1 on city streets, Pikes Peak hill climb, Rally, etc... ALL offer the spectator to be relatively close to fast moving objects, and likewise most that attend/watch those events acknowledge that, whether a 20-something single person or a 40-something with a 5 year old.

Philosophically, that to me is a large problem with the country these days. Laws/rules/standards are being imposed because a group of people disagree with another group on the "right way" to live. Be it parenting, religion, sex, height of grass, size of your tires, etc..

^^ Yes! I remember watching a video about those when they were first introduced. That would be a perfect toy to play around with up here. I would turn my property into a go-cart track for those things.

I have ALOT to say about the whole JDM motor thing. After living with both the USDM 2.0 liter for the last 12 years, and now nearly a full year on the JDM 2.0 liter, specifically the EJ207, I feel confident saying there is little comparison between the two. Sure, they look the same, they have many similar appearing components, the basic layout is the same….but in specific areas the JDM is far superior. I will even venture to say that the sum of the parts in the JDM motor add up to exponential advantages over the USDM motors' inherent displacement advantage (in the case of the 2.5 liter). Stock for stock, the US market simply got robbed. The USDM motors, even the 2.5 liter STI, makes far less HP per CC of displacement. I fully realize this isn't news to everyone, but I am saying this for the unenlightened or those new here to the Subaru game… and there are a lot of newbies. Bear with me.

The intake ports on my JDM 2.0 liter make the ports on the 2.5 STI motor look tiny.Those cavernous passages are there to flow! Motors are basically just air pumps. Add more air to said motor, the more fuel you can add. Adding more air & fuel allows for bigger explosions, creates bigger bangs and that my friends equals more POWAR!.

The JDM motor (from 7 onwards) has forged internals. Different versions have forged pistons (Version 7). Versions 8 (mine), 9 and up, have hypereuthectic pistons (a hybrid alloy). They are also semi closed deck, making them an inherently stronger block, when you want to push well beyond stock power levels. They don't have piston skirt issues or ring landing failures like USDM engines do. They also have a double cross drilled crank which allows for better lubrication, so they don't get spun rod bearings as easily. There are no TGV delete to do because they don't come with them in the first place. Last but not least, the ECU allows for an upper rev limit of over 8,000 rpm. Don't try this on your USDM!

I won't go into the whole twin scroll turbo thing because that is a separate issue. Not all JDM motors have those. That started with the Version 8 model. What I will go into is that some folks have gotten to drive my car since this whole swap went down and they've all been converts. I know of two local JDM build/swaps going on presently that should be completed over the coming winter, with a probable 3rd in the planning stages.

The folks who just went through a dyno day know that a true 300HP to the wheels is formidable. Well, my car is achieving that with stock internals, stock turbo, with the addition of a meth kit, larger injectors, and a conservative tune. If my internal waste gate spring was stronger, I could go beyond the present 21 lbs boost and make higher torque figures still on the same turbo. AS it is I am pretty pleased with where things are. It is certainly ample power for a daily driver.

Now, what if I disclosed that not only is all of this verifiable fact but that I have not burned a single drop of oil in 10 months of hard driving. The oil level never moves on the dipstick. This was NEVER the case with my USDM, not even from brand new! Not only that but my gas mileage has improved considerably with this new setup. Some of that is due to the ratios with the 6 speed swap but this motor revs so effortlessly, with the meth doing it's job….I'm seeing miles per tank I never saw with the USDM motor….even though I'm several hundred pounds heavier with this setup. Those numbers are higher with both in town driving and on the highway.


Anyways, I guess thats enough for now. I have tons of links and information on this swap if folks are interested. A great place to start is right here in Nasioc.

VLAD is a EJ207 guru. He helped me and Underground through a couple nasty issues. As much as these Subarus are supposed to be swappable legos…issues crop up…when you least expect it. Nice to have a guru to call. He has been through two of these swaps himself.


This thread starts in 2006 and is kept current by all the other wild cats out there nationally who've done this well documented swap. Believe me this is just a starting point…some basic foundation…to lay groundwork before moving on to where things are currently.

If you have a motor die, you should seriously consider these as an option to doing a rebuild or a built motor. If you are still skeptical….come along for a ride sometime. I'll make you a convert.

Love it Ben, very cool, but where would you compete with it? Our limited venues and classes really hamper us. I've looked at SR3 Radical chassis, Ariel Atoms, etc. I've seen video of a Radical with a version 8 STI motor in it at Virginia International Raceway and it was pretty phenomenal what that car was capable of. The 4 wheeler deal looks pretty cool too.





This last part of my post is about the meth. It is a well known fact that we have atrocious gas up here. Even the premium is pretty dismal. I've been living with a cooling mist set up for the past year and a half. It has been very nice just pulling up to any convenience store and getting a gallon of windshield washer fluid @ $2.99 instead of having to keep $$$ cans of Torco available at all times, knowing who has what in stock, etc. I highly recommend you folks on the fence look into this more closely and see the advantages it provides. There are some great new and updated kits out there.

The Cobra would be a summer cruiser, similar to Darin and Dave O. Maybe some Auto-x, but mostly just a fun ride.

The Formula cross could be a formidable Rally-x car. Would be fun if you could get a DOT legal kit (lights, signals, windows, etc)

Billboard sent me this link. I ordered some of the Opti Pro after reading it. I'm gonna try it out on my lenses soon. I hope it seals it up as good as the Tacoma lenses from this article. I'll be sure to take some before and after photos.

Ahhh!!!! This doesn't look like it ended well.





I like the slammed 1st gen with the motorcycle trailer.
I read the writeup on it once, it was pretty cool on a budget.
