This is the one I ordered:

Gates Timing Belt Kits & Components for 02-11 WRX/STi
Item# Gates-Timing-belt-Kits-Components-WRX-STi
that includes the water pump: $309 shipped from

The idler was different from the stock idler; the "face was protruding out more", if that makes sense. You will need a slightly longer bolt, otherwise, there isn't enough grab on the block if you use the same bolt. I went down to the hardware store and got a M10x1.25 bolt.

For those who are still confused whether the V7's have TGV's or not, here you go:

EJ205 TGV, see connector?

Here is the EJ207 that has the deletes, noticed the runner doesn't have the recess for the TGV solenoid (the blank behind the oil dipstick). As you can see, there is a TGV riser, unlike the V8 that has a single long runners.

Got a newly resurfaced flywheel
