Default V5/6 EJ205's

Besides the catherineandken site is there any other information on the early phase 2 EJ205's? I'm thinking about rolling the dice all over again and using a used long block rather then rebuilding.

What do you want to know about them? They are pretty much the same thing as our USDM EJ205.

Based on purely anecdotal evidence, they don't seem to suffer from bearing failure as much as the K's.

I assumed that was the case but I try not to assume. Im curious if anyone has any real world, seen in person info. You can never tell with the JDM stuff.

Jaxx...are you saying the cam seals are not the same as the USDM EJ205?

Matt...Is the ignition/manifold setup the same on all V5/6 EJ205/7? Did the JDM 205's come with TD04's? Does 8 bolt bellhousing always mean phase 2 motor/manifold?

Yup, you're missing something. 205's started in 99 or late 98.

GF8 late models had 205s, While the WRXs had 207s. Thinking some of the SF5s also.

ckcadavona,
What engine do you have in your car right now that you are trying to replace?

Both v5 and v6 Ej205's will have wasted spark ignition and plug wires.

V5 will have the early cam diameter. The v6 will have the later cam diameter. This is relevant if for example you wanted to use the engine to replace a USDM Ej205. All USDM Ej205's use the late cam diameter, so you could take a set of US cam gears and put them on a v6 engine and make it run on a USDM WRX ECU. You can't do that with a v5. Though if you've got something like an EJ20K in your car right now it won't matter because the cam trigger points will already be right.

And yes, they came with Td04's and 8 bolt bellhousings. These will be phase II engines with the relocated thrust bearing.

I found a used longblock to replace my EJ207 w/ spun rod bearing. I'd appreciate everyone's opinions/comments...

This is what it looked like before I tore it apart:


I was doing the timing belt and tensioner so I checked the cam seals, front main, and compared cam diameters while I was at it. Everything was the same with the exception of the oil cooler/water pump, I'll post the cam measurements later if anyone's interested. For some reason I can't get the markings on the pulley's lined up after pulling the timing belt. I don't want to force anything...any tips. I'm thinking about using an air cooled oil cooler rather then buying a new oem oil cooler. The cost difference isn't much.



I'm wondering if this came from the rear main or the sealed cover on the left:


Here's what the oil pan looked like. I wiped off the baffle a little but I almost wish I didn't have to do this because it looked fairly clean. I needed to clean the pan and pick-up along with some other things to retain the 1yr warranty the engine came with.



It looked like this oil line was leaking, is there a way to reseal it? Should I replace the copper o-rings for all of the turbo oil line's or are they reusable?


What ISC/IACV is this? I'm trying to figure out what gasket I need for it. When the swap was running it always threw a ISC stick check light.


Any other recommendations while I have everything apart would be appreciated i.e. gasket replacement and important torque specs.
Thanks
