Default Finally bought ej257 block, What else do i need ?

OK so finally after weeks of trying to find the best bang for my buck engine rebuild due to a spun bearing on my 2.0 i finally purchased a new EJ257 i am going to list the parts i also purchased along with it, so if you see anything i am missing please post, Keep in mind i went 2.5 because it was the same price as a new 2.0, so my power goals are nothing more then conservative, i have no intentions of the engine ever seeing 300 HP.

New 2009 EJ257 with nitrided crank
STI oil pump
Sti water pump
new timing belt tensioner
new timing belt
OEM head gasket
ARP head studs
Heads checked out ( were redone 6 months ago)
Tune from AKUMA motor sports

When i purchase the oil cooler which one do i buy the STI or WRX one?

I have the head gasket, But what other gaskets do i need ?, i find paying almost 300 for a gasket set is crazy, considering from the parts store most small gaskets are 4 bucks at most.

Dont hate on me for not putting pistons in, as i said my power and boost goals are low, and stock STI internals are good for 400 hp. so im guessing hp under 300 wont be a problem for the ringland, especially with a good knowledgable tuner doing my tune.

oil cooler must be purchased for specific block. newer blocks use slightly different from older. If the ringlands are gonna break, they are gonna break.

headgaskets
exhaust manifold gasket
intake manifold gasket (if yours look bad)
cams seals
front crank seal
ANY gasket that you see LEAKING

i am pretty much in the exact same boat as you and my list looks quite similar except i am going with forged pistons (a block from raw 1 performance)...
i am wondering if the 300 dollar gasket kit is worth it....
and also about the oil cooler... never thought of that... hopefully ron will know what to do

The $300 gasket set includes a bunch of stuff you probably won't use, so you can sell them to offset the cost. Since you have heads and the block is pre-assembled, you can sell all of those gaskets, and you probably won't need any of the manifold or TGV gaskets as well. However, you'd probably still save money and trouble by checking out the master gasket thread in this forum and ordering only the gaskets you'll need.

I didn't want to buy used, in the end would of been around the same price to put a new 2.0 . Got the car for $5000, spent $3000 on hybrid build w/ rebuilt heads and new clutch . The 3000 includes the tune . So $8000 total on a clean ass subie with a 0 mile hybrid. Still sucks my engine blew. But now I got an almost like new car.

How much for the oil pan ?

hes right. if you want new the price between a 2.0 and 2.5 hybrid are almost the same. few hundred extra for the tune but the tq is well worth that.

To each his own. Nothing wrong with overbuilding a motor especially when the OE bolts should be replaced if they have any significant mileage. The easier head installation and smaller chance of losing a head gasket down the road is worth the $20 alone.
