Who did you get the motor from? Ive read some real negative reviews about Nagoya.. did you crack the block open to inspect for how the block physically is? (besides replacing the timing components, oil/water pump)

I'll second the negatives from Nagoya. Went with another vendor for my six speed.

I got my all 3 from Japan Domestic Motors. My first jdm sti motor grenade'd after like 250 miles. That one is still a mystery. Think it spun the bearings. 2nd motor lasted 7000-10000 miles and melted a piston. it was running lean and i wasnt running a wideband

Wais didnt give me anything for free but i felt he took great care of me. I also got a jdm 6-speed from him.

My current block has not been cracked and i did not do the install this time. Sean from vigilant did the install and inspected the motor. There was actually a 4th jdm sti motor i havent mentioned yet but when it showed up sean noticed rust on the valves so it was sent back. I think what happened was some water got inside the motor when it was pressured washed and cleaned up for pictures to be sold.

Inspected the motor how? I'm having big second thoughts (especially after what you said) and just going for a hybrid instead.

look dont base your decision off of me. Im not giving you advice. I recommend you do what you feel comfortable with. I wanted a jdm sti motor. I wanted smooth revving to 8k redline So thats what i went with. And im still glad i went ej207 over ej257 or a hybrid. Theres something about the stroke or balance i cant remember exactly that is just ****ing lovely about this motor.

I think you would have to remove the intake manifold to see the valves.

I HIGHLY recommend a tuner you trust and a wideband gauge minimum along with general motor maintance (timing, water pump, plugs, etc)

People do these swaps all the time. Its nothing new. But i can tell your just like most people when they first consider this option. Scared out of their mind lol. Its going to cost $$$ (motor, shipping, maintance items, tuner, upgrades) its not cheap and i highly recommend you not skimp on anything you can avoid.(i was pinching pennies and didnt get the wideband and paid the price) get the wideband, and pay a good tuner. if you see something you dont like talk with them about it or pay another tuner. Ive gone thru clark turner, PDX, IAP, and torqued performance. They all had their pluses.

When i got my ej207 it smelled like wd40 inside the motor. I was told they do that to keep water out and rust from forming. Anyway its been 5 months and its still running strong. Only thing i did was the valve cover gaskets before dropping it in. Going to do the timing belt soon even though the one on it looked new.

Yeah I understand you have to pay to play. Having the block split is what I was thinking about before my inquiry.

then go for it. If your doing that throw forged pistons, rods and some killer bearings in and have some real fun.

If my eyes serve me correctly, u ran 22psi tapering to 14. Hmm. I can see a imagine a nice timing ramp on that tune. I'd love to see a data log of this too. If u have it please post or send me privately.
