You can do it. Swap over your intake manifold, but donít expect to use the exhaust side AVCS unless you find the correct ECU from Japan and that entails another can of worms. You can use the original ECU and keep the AP. Some folks are leaving the AVCS cam gear in place, but have said the motor seems laggy. I donít see why you couldnít take your old cam and sprocket from the 255 and plug the OCV holes. Iíve heard good things and bad things about the swap and some have said itís not worth it. Jspec Auto sells decent JDM motors, I bought my V8 STI swap from them and didnít have any issues.
