OMGHi2U Does the jdm STI have the 2.5 liter motor in it?

The vin says ej207 but i took a look on wiki and there was some stuff in there saying that its just a chassis code and they still have a bad habit of calling ej25 cars ej20's. im looking at a 2005 jdm sti right now and since wiki wasnt very clear i dont really want to spend a bunch of money to get a car and put up with half a liter less of displacement and want to engine swap it as soon as i get it. if anyone knows please share your knowledge.

The GRB A-line is the only JDM STI that got a 2.5L. It's also the only automatic STI.
