IIRC, the sti cams are bucketless or something, and the 95' JDM EJ25 is shim over bucket, or some crap like that. But i'm pretty sure they arent compatible unless you swap over the buckets/shims. Dont know all the details, but from what limited knowledge I have, I think they are different. The info is more than likely already here, just waiting to be found.

4 valves per cylinder doesn't mean it's DOHC. My 2.5i is SOHC.

And I do have to wonder, why do you want to use turbo cams on an N/A engine?

You will probably get more knowledgable answers in the "built motors" section. I would search for the terms AVCS, cams, swap, etc...You want to know if AVCS cams will run in non-AVCS heads.

I'm sensing that you need to do ALOT more reading and researching before taking on the project though. The above posts demonstrate a lack of knowledge in the basic structure of Subie motors and will quickly lead to trouble if blindly ignored.

I'll go out on a limb and say that I'm pretty sure they will fit.

What is your situation? Do you have either or both of these motors? Are you looking to do some sort of hybrid?

My concern is the AVCS of the newer cams. I don't know if they'll fit in the older heads. If they did, it certainly won't have AVCS functioning.

as far as N/A subies we have AVLS not AVCS, and this AVLS will most likely be retained, meaning a smooth idle and decent emissions

I don't think AVCS cams would retain AVLS.
