Question EJ257 block with EJ207 heads. Mas redline?

I am thinking of making a frankenstien EJ motor. Slapping some EJ207 heads on a EJ257 motor.

Anybody know the CR of this badboy, and how about the max RPM's of the bottom end. Would like to run her up to 8 grand like the EJ207 if possible.

Plan on mating this setup to a FP20G turbo and maxim works headers.

Work... ahhh... so tired.


They spin the ra 207 block to 9k right? I know the rev limit from the factory is 8400. From what Ive read the only problem is there is no knock corection after 5500-5800? So you could run into big problems.
You could just slap them up and run it but I dont think it would be a good idea to try it unless you have the money for a new 257 and an extra set of heads. Cobbs ej25 spins to 8k but I dont think the factory block will. Make sure you get the spec c ra heads they have bigger ports then the sti.

De-stroke it and rev it to the moon, I recommend the current STI EJ20 crank(More oil galleys) But a WRX one will be just as strong but rut a little warmer and ware a little faster.

Destroking it would make it run cooler and more efficiently at those higher RPMs. More power/less ware=Winner. You would also need the appropriete cams(Jun). MHO
