You have an EJ25. More specificaly I think it will be an EJ251. To know for sure open the hood and look at the vin tag next to the left strut tower. The complete designation for your engine is on it listed as "Engine Type".

On the Borla website and the Advanced Auto Parts catalog, there is an EJ253 as well for the 05's. I wonder what the difference is.

your N/A EJ25 should be a 253....my 99 is a 253. And IIRC, the 257 is the turbo. I'm not sure about the 251

It lists both on the sites.

Weird.

My 01 RS says 251...no idea on difference between 253. Could a 253 be the DOHC?

I think that the MAF(98,99,05) year cars are EJ253 and the MAP(00-04) year cars are EJ251. At lunch I checked my 04 and it is a EJ251
