The JDM oil pump is a 12mm unit, I am not aware of the water pumps being different diameters.

The regular water pump is the same and the spec c with oil radiator has the same part number for water pump as the GRB USDM WRX

The JDM Impreza STi EJ207 oil pump is not 12mm, the 12mm pump is fitted to the JDM Twin Turbo Legacy, it uses the 12mm pump to flow enough oil to supply both turbos. The last thing you want is a larger than stock oil pump, all you will do is heat the oil up as it gets passed back through the PRV.

I'm trying to weigh out my options on what to do to get it running again.

Any suggestions?

well since you continued to run it there is metal in the entire engine now and probabl the turbo as well.
tear it down to get hot tanked and full cleaned.
go through the heads and check the scoring that probably happened in the cam journals esp the caps since they take most of the pressure.
get a shop or someone knowledgeable to inspect the crank journals as well as the bearing journals for proper seating.
depending on the cylinder walls get a quick hone job or bore it out.
order a new oil pump and oil cooler. they are full of metal shavings and need to hit the trash.
send your turbo to a shop to be rebuilt or back flushed for any metal shavings that got into it.
take apart the avcs solenoids and hope ours have the screens that caught the metal shavings that went into those. if not disassemble and clean out. check for any seals that will contact scored metal.

unfortunatly a spun bearing causes metal shavings to get into everything in a very short time.

Yeah, That video was taken as soon as it happened. It was running perfectly fine and then that sound happened and I started recording and then shut down. Haven't turned it on since. I'm hoping the damage is as minimal as possible, obviously.

There aren't any screens in my solenoids either.

okay well you have one choice right now. take it out and tear it down inspecting everything under good light. also keep the head cam caps organized, they are bore matched for each one and mismatching them could lead to further problems. good luck and if in doubt make a thread int he ej205 forums with pictures if you need more feedback.

Any 02-07 wrx/sti crossmember would work.

Had a quick question about doing a complete v8 6spd swap with 5x114 hubs. I was told I will loose my abs if I keep my stock 02 wrx abs sensors with the 5x114 hubs. Also will I run into issues with my neutral saftey swich? I am running v8 ej207 with the v8 ecu in an 02 bugeye.

This is probably best placed in the Drivetrain subforum. We can answer it here, but it's not really having much to do with EJ207's directly.
