All Ej20's from 1989 until present have forged cranks and rods. There's really not one that's better than the other.

I personally wouldn't put an Ej20G block into an '04 WRX. For the money one would spend building an Ej20G to make it appropriate you can buy a brand new crate Ej25 bottom end.
So when my 94 WRX gets it's heads pulled for an HG change I will find an open deck block?

The Spec C crank isn't better than the EJ205 crank, or are they all the same?
