Default Blew my motor doing a legacy block need info

thats right my wrx motor went, cylinder 4 is gone and i bought a jdm ej20 motor off ebay @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2417311174


i plan on swaping blocks since the jdm block is all forged and basically stronger then my wrx motor. Anyone know some info about this? any info would be great thanks!

hmm spendy i only paid 650 for mine .. sorry

any way shouln't be too bad. it has less main berrings than the ej205 but is closed deck. there is a possiblity that it is 8.5 to 1.. it does not have forged internals..

there is a guy in portland that did the exact same thing not sure of the out come tho

i was told from Ron at Axis that the internals are forged internals and can hold a bit more then a wrx motor can.

Jaxx - What was the condition of your motor when you got it, and where did you purchace it from? Just want to get an idea of what I am getting myself into with buying a used ej20. Thanks, Chris.

In this thread, there is a calculated 9.9:1 on an EJ20G block that originally started at 8.8:1. This is with the EJ20G shortblock and the USDM WRX heads. So be careful. Your compression ratio may not be usable.

All the rumors of forged internals are usually false. About half the people seem to think that the EJ22T block also uses forged internals but it is cast just like most the rest of the blocks. To my knowledge, the only forged internals came in the STi engines. However, I remember reading about somebody saying that the EJ20G was designed to be used in WRC and built to withstand 400hp. Don't know if that is founded or not.

I don't how Jaxx's motor condition was, but suberboy's motor needed the deck to be resurfaced before it could be used.
