you really dont need all of that twinscroll stuff, although it is really nice.
Use what you have, single scroll turbo, exhaust manifold and intake manifold. Just delete your tgvs in your risers. Then get a tune. I still recommend a jdm ecu to take advantage of your heads.

I've got a Perrin inlet pipe on my V7 ej207 if that helps. No issues.

Early Perrin inlets were like 3ply thin. So the had problems. Most are now thicker including Perrin. Also avoid samco with the straight end near the turbo. As it has fitment issues around the tgv area.

Nice to know, thanks for the info. Will I need another tune for the inlet pipe?

Keep an eye on ebay for a JDM v7 STI ECU. You can find them for under $200 if you are patient. Just keep in mind that it is DBC so don't get a DBW intake mani.

I wouldn't suggest a v8 STI ecu unless you are running a turbo that can push 1.4bar or you have a MBC to dial it down a bit.

Have had success running 04 USDM ECUs with ej207s. You will loose the AVCS but they still run great, are relatively cheap, and easily tunable.

Also most JDM v7 and v8 WRX ECUs are DBC single AVCS. Haven't tried them on a dual AVCS ej207 though.

detracts from drivability how?

What makes the v8 ecu specific to having a turbo with at least 1.4 bar? That's not stock boost levels is it?

I figured you'd need a tune no matter what due to the jdm timing.

ver8 doesn't have TGV's. It's one solid piece.

The samco one will fit fine.

v7 doesnt have TGV's either. They are just risers with no TGV motors. Had a samco and it fit fine as well.

"tgv area"... Bottom of the intake near the turbo. Do you need me to spell it out any further for you. As all inlets need to turn near the turbo. Or have you never look at them before?

Also I didn't say all samco inlet Do you read? Only... the ones that are straight at the end with no bend. There are a few still out there. Most have the bend.

you said perrin inlet, then you said samco. I'm not a mind reader and your grammar is horrific.

I'd like to see a picture of the SAMCO you think won't fit.

Why so defensive?

Grammer, yes I'm not on my computer. I don't claim to have the best grammer or spelling. But people generally understand where I am coming from.

If your going to correct someone have your facts. I didn't feel I needed to spoon feed people with in depth and exact detail. I figured it was understood by those who understand how these things work.

The stock boost for v8 JDM stis is 1.4-1.6 bar. Just about any stock JDM sti turbo (vf22, 34, 36/7) will run this fine. You will blow a vf39 or similar USDM turbo with a quickness though.

Question for those that swapped the transmission as well as the engine:

Did you notice an additional drop in the front suspension when you were done? The 200lb would probably even out the sti springs.

Hi fellow EJ207 lovers,
I was just wondering where you buy timing belts etc, specifically the Gates timing belt kit with water pump. I live in Australia so we all got free 207s with our cars but I tend to buy most of the parts for my car from the States as your suppliers have more realistic pricing. Any help would be appreciated. Mine is a V7 EJ207.

Thanks,
Owen

I noticed it with the engine swap (ej205-->ej207). My snow tires rub a lot more this year in the front.

05 WRX with BC coilovers. Low mileage so I know it's not the coil overs.

I'm sure engine weight info is listed in here somewhere.

PM a few vendors on here and find one you're comfortable with.

The 6 speed is said to be 200lb heavier than the 5 speed. I'm not sure that the 207 is heavier than the 205.
If you didn't swap the transmission, but only the engine, the difference should be minor.
The Sti springs account for the difference in weight of the 6 speed in the front, I think.

Before I installed mine, i threw it on a bathroom scale, fwiw it read 185, no fluid, no, clutch, no starter, no axels. Its bulky heavy but not 200lbs heavier than the 5sp. I dont recall any additional sag up front on my bugeye when I installed it. For a while i had 04 Sti takeoff suspension with the stock 5sp then swapping to the 6sp.

From what I recall the 6 speed is approximately 80lbs heavier than the 5 Speed.
