You'll see a few A-E chassis images pop up, but if you actually click on them, they'll all be listed as 'v7' or 'v8' - the 'v9' links are all F/G chassis cars.

Again, ebay sellers? why are you even bringing up body parts into a conversation about engines?

You can disagree all you want... but I stand by my statement about just saying GDB-A through G being the best route to go. I don't know why anyone would push for a system that adds ambiguity into the mix.

Again, you can stand for whatever you want and actually I hope you begin the conversations soon with those that view the rev F as V10 and Rev G as V11, because you're just one in a line of many that wants to change the versions, of course each in their own way. All that the thread engine designations are is a common denominator, something that has been agreed on for a long time...

The comments below my last one clearly show a huge issue - US and Euro terminology is completely screwy.

Yes, this is correct. My base chassis is a 2006 USDM STi with single AVCS. Going to dual AVCS with a standalone was as easy as running 4 wires (+12V, GND, LH Ex. Cam Pos., RH Ex. Cam Pos.) and re-pinning the TGV motor +12V and GND wires to the exhaust AVCS +12V and GND outputs.

I had more trouble sourcing a mating connector for the TGV plugs than I did figuring out the wiring. If anyone wants to do this without butchering the harness - Sumitomo 6188-0624 is the one you want.
In sum, while the designations have been and remain a good base, nobody is stopping you from starting your own system, or go by revisions, as you wrote.
