The engine seller says they have the intercooler, and are looking for the downpipe flange. So I should be set to move ahead with the ej20x intake/exhaust and turbo setup. Even if they can't find the down pipe, I can get a flange off of eBay and get that welded to my downpipe.

I did more research into using AVCS cams in non-avcs applications, I can't reuse my ej255 fixed exhaust cams due to their condition. And the resting state of the AVCS cams is not the same as the fixed cams normal (and only) position.

So when I replaced the timing belt and pulleys I set the exhaust cams one tooth counter-clockwise. To better match the normal position of the fixed cams. It's a little weird, but it should work.

I also ordered a Tactrix cable so I can tell the ECU not to freak out about the missing TGVs.
