Looks like quite the project you've got going there!

I'm not trying to be rude or sound like a jackass but whats the big deal with the JDM stuff? Is all the trouble to get it working right worth it?

You joking, right? The 20K is far superior to the 205 if you compare engine to engine. The 205 heads are really just old Ej20G parts with a newer camshaft design. And just the fact that the EJ20K is 280ps out of the box with plenty of room still left on the turbo is worth the price of admission (especially when it was half of current market on an Ej205 swap!). I literally watched and waited for more than 2 years to grab my Ej20K...

mxpunk,
Maybe you don't get it, but a JDM swap is no more and no less work than a USDM swap. There are little differences to what's required to make them work, but I fail to see how you have got it into your head that a JDM swap is MORE work...

Well..I would think JDM swap is easier on a pre OBD-II vehicle but from what I understand OBD-II and JDM stuff is tricky, which is why I think that the JDM swap stuff is more of a hassle then doing a regular USDM one..

I guess the idea of dealing with emissions makes me think doing a JDM conversion is not worth it..but if im wrong (probably am) please tell me..im always willing to learn

The EJ20k is way cooler than a 205. I own both now. While the EJ20k isn't running yet I already know it's going to beat the pants off my swapped RS with a EJ205. As stated above the heads are way better. The short block is similar to the 205 but in my case it's an STI and is forged internally and the STI v3 and v4 have some of the hottest cams from the factory. It's no joke.

Jaxx wassup with the GDA throttle cable? Is this a requirement. i was going to use the EJ18 cable will it not fit?

cheers

dunno the throttle is in the same place as the 205.. i was under the impression it was needed for the 205 too

what have people been doing with the ej20k egt sensor? any one know what resistor to put in?

wish mine had been a STI mmmm 8000 rpm would fun

How different are the heads between the STi 20k and the non STI 20k? I know the STI is rated for like 3 lb-ft more torque but thats about it. With a power fc you'd probably rev to 7.5k just fine. Also even with the STI motor and 7.9k rev limiter, its still a 7k rpm motor just has a higher ceiling to avoid hitting the wall.

Sounds like another surprise coming. Hopefully the EJ18 TC works. I don't want to buy anything else. I gots no money left he he.

cheers

It's not really a requirement for either the 205 or the 20K, but it sure does fit a lot better.

i can rev past 8k with my SYMS ECU(V4 STi). and let me tell you, it feels like its at 3,4,5K RPM. it's silly fast, and makes boost from 2K on.

i could've used my L cable or the STi one. same length etc. STi just came from opposite side, but same length fwiw.

i will findout resistance later tonight JAXX
