Default EJ205 good choice for RS-T?

Please bare with me fellas...im just finalizing some info on turboing my RS and here are my major concerns:

1) the ej25 blocks are somewhat unreliable, will an ej205 be suficent with SOHC 2.5 heads?

2) wiring, and more wiring...will i have to wire a ton if i just swap my block for an EJ205 block?

3) What other blocks do you fellas suggest for this swap...im looking for about 250 hp at the crank and a reliable rig

4) any other suggestions are more than welcome

Sorry for the nub questions again but please :help: ...

Are you getting the EJ205 block significantly cheaper? Otherwise, just go with the EJ257

And when you swap just the shortblock, there should be no wiring involved
