Youíve already gone crazy, you want a built ej20. Youíll never have the reliability of a factory sealed motor. This forum is littered with the horror stories of experience built motors. There is also plenty evidence that the junkyard ej207 people have been swapping have proven to be more reliable. You want 350-400 hp, Iím guessing you are talking flywheel because to support that power level on an ej205 reliably you will want to build a strong motor. You arenít going to get 350 whp out a vf48 on e85, you are going to need a bigger turbo. You will have a laggy setup that will have you putting down lots of power after 4,000 rpm to redline. If you want to keep it lively youíd be best of with a 16gxt, you will have around 280-320 whp depending on fuel. At those power levels you donít need to worry about building the 2.0l to be reliable. Assuming you start with a healthy motor, donít abuse it an do plenty oil changes and preventive maintenance.
