I made a spade connector for mine but when I got my motor it was unexpected to see that. I posted pictures here and asked, not many people had it. I wonder if it's just a v9 thing. Post a pic if you don't mind, just for comparison reasons.

Sorry, which ground? Got pictures? I'm curious if I'm missing it.

Hopefully around 290-300whp is attainable with a conservative tune
300Whp Should be no Issue at all. I made 310 with a 20g and Id 1000s at 19psi and no working avcs. and a super safe tune. we had to cut it short because the avcs wasnt working.

Sweet.

Heres a video of the cold compression test of my potential motor.
137, 140, 135, 131
The last cylinder is a little low, but nothing to be worried about....Right?

Only about a 7% difference from min to max so that is not too bad. I know the valves on my motor were pretty dirty when I got it and leaking a bit. Turning it over by hand a bunch got them to seal better and once it was running all the crud came off and they seal nicely.

Is anyone running 20-40k miles on a swapped motor ?

I am still debating the long term reliability of a 207 on the stock vf37.

Roughly 32k on my motor when installed and I'm at roughly 72k now. Timing belt needs to be done at 69k(I'm trying to get mine done ASAP) but its been going strong on the stock vf30 with 21psi.

I've got 100k+ miles on the 207 swap. The first 30-40k was a trial by fire by the previous owner with tons of nitrous with a 30r. The stock vf37 will probably give up its ghost before the motor goes bad if everything else is taken care of and a good tune.

a ej25 would have blown a long time ago. just shows the toughness of the ej20 engine and the ej207 specifically. They will take much more abuse than the vf turbo will throw at it. I got 10k miles on my swap since I got it and no problems yet, knock on wood. a tune is everything as stlnation just found out.

The pistons in the V8 kinda worry me but they seem to lack all the problems of the ej257.

I would have my motor tuned by phatbotti tuning.

I got around 145,000 kilometers on my motor. It Runs strong and has no problems at all just make sure you change the oil and do all the maintenance that is required. Oh and make sure you have a good tune.

Ok I brought this up a while ago and already bought the parts... Any tricks I need to know when replacing my valve cover gaskets on my 207? I've never changed one... Even on my 205. Do I NEED to use the Subaru "Three Bond 1207c" P/N: 004403012 as indicated numerous places or can I simply use grey liquid silicone gasket? I usually use the recommended materials but if I don't NEED to buy it I'd rather not since the gaskets rarely get changed AND this PARTICULAR part number is ONLY specified certain places. I DO own the other three bond by Subaru 004403007 which is pink in color. Used on transmission oil pans and stuff.

I'm sure it isn't THAT difficult but any experienced knowledge would be greatly appreciated. I usually see videos and stuff of ONLY the passenger side. The drivers side is a lot tighter spaced than the passenger side. How much more difficult isn't and anything that I need to be careful of? Video?

I like to fully prepare myself so I know what to expect. I did not purchase the half moon pieces as I don't see them as critical replacement pieces that NEED to be changed unless they are specifically broken one leaking.

Thanks!

i wouldn't use the pink stuff, grey should work fine. I actually used permatex right stuff black and it worked well. No leaks yet
I can only suggest to have lots of towels on hand to wipe up any oil from mating surfaces if you plan to do them while the motor is in the car.
If you have access to a hoist, you can swing the motor side to side if you really need to make more room. Do NOT over tighten the 10mm valve cover bolts during reassembly, they will snap and make everything a pain in the ass.

Good call. What's the torque spec? I'm lazy to look it up. LOL. I understand floating the engine. But for valve covers hat a bit ridiculous since ill have to remove a lot from under the car to get the engine out enough you know?

What about a shimmying sequence. LOL.

Any of you guys using the grimmspeed heatshield? I see it says it's for LHD cars only, so I'm not exactly sure if it will fit our RHD motors in a LHD car... Was hoping to hear if anyone had used one successfully.

Well the difference between LHD and RHD for turbo head shields are that the clutch master and brake master are over the turbo so the hear shield may not fit over properly or how it's designed. If the bolts line up I can't see why not. LOL

lol, i wasnt suggesting to remove the engine, but just undo the pitch mount and mount bolts necessary to float the engine from side to side.

from this thread its 4.7ft/lbs (double check the FSM), maybe you can find additional tips here http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...9#post38421429
