Yeah, take pictures if you can find them. What did you do, just run the heavier ones?

I need two new exhaust gaskets. One for the turbo to downpipe and one from downpipe to exhaust. Which do I get here at Subaru regular WRX or STi or different.

I know it's easy, I'm just saying it's a pain. Plus I would need a map for both jdm and usdm ecus.

I'm just finshing building this car that I bought as a shell. Completely bare, all I need now is two axles and a hard brake line and then I can start cruising and get a tune.

You can always call them. They have a lot of stuff that isn't on the site, iirc.

So it sounds like everyone is happy with their 207's... from what I read anyway... I'm looking for a new motor and have been also torn between a 257 and a 207 V8. Where would be a good place to go for a motor? I don't see many being sold on here unfortunately... :/ Any suggestions?

if you want a 207, get it from jdmracingmotors.com They went the extra mile to make sure everything worked out for me.

So, I recall reading in one of the early threads about the 207 reading one or two posts about a "backup" label location on JDM engines.

I have been looking some more into this and am thinking at this point that the backup location is on the back of the engine.

If you look at the engine from in front of the flywheel, it would be on the lower left side.

If the engine is already in the car, you can check with an iphone if your label is still there, by snapping photos from underneath.

My engine still has the rectangular glue residue from the label there.

I can't post photos from work, but will post them later this evening.

I would be curios to see if any of you finds a valid label there.

It is basically just left of the left motor mount as you're looking from in front of the flywheel and the label would sit vertical.

Call RalliSpec they are based in New Jersey and they carry everything you could ever want that is an OEM JDM part for the EJ207. They also Wholesale their parts to IAPerformance, which is how IAP has the JDM parts.

so there are 200+ pages of this and I didnt want to start a new thread. But I have a EJ207 V8 and wanted to know if there was anyone who has put a EJ207 V7 bottom end on it? I like the idea of the forge bottom end but would it be better to just build the V8 bottom end or just get a V7 bottom end?

I think it would be a waste of time and money unless you are pushing over 500 and /or just want insurance from an amature tuner in case of knock.

Has your motor failed? If not, don't touch it. Run it until it dies and then rebuild. I think you'll find out the forged V7 lower end isn't all it's promised to be. Or at least you'll probably find that the V8+ lower ends aren't exactly weak like their EJ255/257 counterparts.

Are you putting this motor in your 2006 STi? If so, have you seen the write-ups from amroof, lukeskywrx and myself on what that swap entails. It's a rare swap.

No it’s in a 02 WRX. Wife is getting the 06 STi. I’ve been reading up on them and everyone seems to make the V7 lower bullet proof and V8 lower just talk about the top so that’s why I was asking. I won’t be doing anything like that for a long while anyways just curious mostly
