Default Help me identify newly aquired ej20

I picked this motor up on ebay and I cant seem to figure out what version it is. The sticker on the timing cover is gone. Thanks for the help!

Looks like a 97-98 ej20g Forester, or WRX wagon. I am no expert though. I did get one off ebay for a swap. Looks just like it.The MAF housing has the sensor held in by two screws, wich the earlier ones were a part of the tube it connects to as a assembly. The next newer style of MAF was used in 02 and later and mounted at the top of the tube. As far as I know, again not a expert. The turbo inlet is also under the manifold instead of a 90. Coil sits on top of manifold off center.

the coil pack off set to the right makes me think that its newer than that, i would say its 99-02 ish.. does that make it a 205? naming got really fuzzy in that time period


pull the crank pully to see if it is high density or low density crank sensor

judging by the intake under the manfiold and the yelllow injectors I'd call it an ej20k ver5-6 motor. 97+ jdm .

Its not a K. The IAC is on the throttle body and the maf is of the 99-01 period I would call the this something like v5 or v6, take the timing cover off i suspect the timing gear for the drivers side intake will be metal making it a 205 or 207.

Coil location, manifold bolt pattern and flex plate tells me it is a 205.
