@ acssa Hey thanks for the advise! Always good to hear from a fellow South African:-)
May I ask if you have a built motor or not? And who do you recommend for your Subaru services?

What's considered high temps in SA? I'm in the arizona desert where its 40-49C all summer long. I'm sure it reads higher than that on the city tarmac. I run 5w-40 and 10w40 weights.

Definatly going to switch oil! So guys. About the head gasket, I'm currently using the Cometic ones and they are .51inch thick. Can I use the stock gasket if I have a 92.5mm bore? Will the thickness difference between the cometic and oem change compression ratio? Im trying to keep everything the same, as there was no detonation. My tuner is in South Africa, and that means I have to tow my car across the border. Tow guys charge roughly $1800. Plus another $300 dollars to check the tune. Its really quite expensive. If I use my AFR wideband and monitor the ratios can I run my car in on the same tune? Thank you

Hey guys. So I'm rebuilding as a 2litre. I like the feel of it. Had the option of going 2.2 and a complete 2.5sti but I like the 2litre power and a feel best. So I'm getting the V8 spec c crank, which is basically the same as a normal v8 and v9 crank. The two things i'm having trouble deciding. First, only one rod is in need of a change. This car is a daily and will be pushing stock turbo power. I can get my hands on one new condition 2.5 sti rod for free basically. Do you think this rod will work with the other 3 Rods? If I recall the V7 sti rods may vary. I dont know. Or should I just replace all with manley ones? Second, should I spend the money and get a Cosworth pump in, or is the stock 10mm fine. Its a ej207 and will see close to 8k rpm flat out.

Hi Just wanted to update this page and say that my motor has been rebuilt. I will post specs later. Here are some pics though















So seeing that my 207 block had been destroyed I decided to use the 2.5 EJ257 block! I think with the bad quality fuel here (95 RON only) the 2.5 is a bit of a better option. Here is what went into the motor.

*Drop in Forged Wiseco Pistons
* Eagle Conrods H- Beam
* ACL Bearings all round
* Stock OEM Gaskets
* Stock modified oil pump

We connected the block to my JDM V7 STI heads.
The motor has been fully balanced etc

Extras include
* Spec Stage 3 Clutch
* Injen Intake
* Walbro Fuel Pump 255lph
* Turbosmart Boost controller
* Apexi Full exhaust
* EBC Slotted and dimple drilled rotors with EBC Yellowstuff brakes

Besides the block everything is from the V7 JDM STI including the IHI VF30 turbo, Intercooler etc
I run the car on 2 boost settings( dyno included)
Normal Pump Fuel - .87Bars
Pumpfuel with NF 6 RON booster- 1.2 bars


Remember 95RON Fuel and a conservative tune ( for my apparently very heavy foot! )

I would like to thank Hylton of WRC Tuning who has done an EXCELLENT job on the entire build and tune of the vehicle. He really is a top guy(both as a tuner and in personality). To Francois of Formula Friction for the wonderfull brakes. To Jerry of Import Parts for always being able to find me whatever Im looking for(has supplied 90% of parts!). To my family and friends, esp mum and dad for their support. To God for making EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. ANd importantly, last and not least, Marco, who I always trouble with my billion and one quetions, but recieve nothing but the best from him( thanks a million bro! )

Thank you all!!! It is much appreciated!!!

How do u not have Brembos on this? Someone take them off before you got it? And what oil pump did u go with? 10?-12? And since the stock STi oil pan & the Cosworth are about the same, u shuda went with the Cosworth baffle & the killer B pick-up! Ur garaunteed Enuf oil with that combo! Plus that Cosworth baffle helps eliminate Blow-by! I can't wait to start building my ej207.
