2002 Wrx

Default Need help identifying engine more accurately


All i know is the motor is jdm wrx Year 2000

The price im getting it for is 1450$ complete motor with turbo and downpipe and even the transmission. Let me know if this is a good deal.

Im fixing the car before i move to sweden and giving the car to my parents.

What do i need to know for this swap into my 2002 wrx. Help me please.


Okay so i purchased the motor, its a my00 and from a wrx. I cant find anything online about this motor, I keep seeing mixed post, so someone clear this up, Jdm ej205 has higher CR then usdm, also are cams the same? Or are the pistons the same as usdm, does jdm have rod bearing issues too? Or what about rods are they the same as usdm or are they stronger.

So i did more research and found this wiki page,

And so i thought for some reason had a v6 engine, but then i looked at pictures and yea can you help me verify this? Here is a pic i cant add more pics since im in texas atm thanks everyone

So! I think i got hell of a deal!! 1450 for engine and tranny thats a v7! Oh and he threw in a version 6 sti intercooler for 100$ so in all i got a sweet deal! I think the reason behind the low price was that they thought it was a v6 wrx engine. Not sure
