Post What engine block do I have? Phase I or Phase II?

I recently read a post about an RS that had the strong Phase II block with the Phase I DOHC heads. I was wondering if they did anything like this with the Legacy and if I could be one of the lucky ones with the strong Phase-II block and the higher flow Phase-I DOHC heads. I have a 99 Legacy GT.

Thanks
Brad

SubieGal,

What happened with the initial EJ25 phase I? I have always and still believe that Soob makes a bullet proof engine. Damn them! They could have just not ever produced the EJ25 and we all would be driving around in EJ20 T's!!!

Actually, there are some bastardized 2.5GTs out there, just like there are some bastardized '98 2.5RSs out there. GTBGUY, for one, has a Phase II block in his 2.5GT (from the factory).

If you check out this link http://www.i-club.com/ubb-files/Forum6/HTML/001127.html there's some good info about the Phase I vs. Phase II thing. On the second page of that thread there's a link http://www.i-club.com/ubb-files/Arch...-1-010028.html that is the basis of my comments on the first page of thread about the bastardized engines. Check that link to figure out how to determine which block you have.
