Default Jdm ej205 help needed

Just got in an 02/03 jdm ej 205 complete swap with tranny ecu and all for a great price. I plan on installing this into my usdm 2002 wrx I have done swaps before but with an usdm ej205 before I start the process is this a direct plug and play or is there any other things I need to know before installing this swap since its a jdm version ej205 any help would be appreciated


Thanks in advance

^correct, might as well take advantage of the AVCS. I believe the 2001 GD WRX was the first year they offered AVCS in the EJ205. Where did you source your JDM EJ205?

Where there any remains of the JDM harness on the motor? When I got mine they had the connectors and a few inch's of harness on the JDM motor.

You can re-purpose the TGV connections as the JDM motor with AVCS will not have them.

There is a nice PDF (D1 Motorsports) out there on the web with the details.
