its probably the coolant hose between the timing cover and the exhaust manifold on the front of the motor. it goes from the thermo housing to the oil modine.

Ill give it a check when i get back from work. Its not a lot of coolant but it builds up and runs down the oil pan and/or the rad hose. Hopefully its something as simple as that.

its a sneaky hidden hose thats notorious for leaking due to the heat of the exhaust manifold.

update, both hoses around the water pump are clean no cracks or signs of a leak, for the $6 they are i still am going to replace them. Didn't have any drips during the day yesterday or evening but there were drips when i went out this morning but only underneath the radiator (drips through that little hole in the front subframe). So its only in the front and its only at night, temps have been between 50-60 lately.

Have you checked both radiator hoses to be sure the connections are tight?

Have you checked the two small coolant hoses that run from the expansion tank down to the radiator?

Anyone have a part number for a version 8 IACV gasket or USDM compatible model?

I believe it's the same as an EJ205 gasket. From doing some research I found this p/n.

Did everyone who swapped to the 207 get tuned right after the swap? I'm currently finishing up my friend's v9 swap and he doesn't want to double spend on tuning. He was wondering if he could run the car with the stock ecu and get tuned once he has upgraded injectors, dp, etc.

What ECU is he planning to use? USDM or JDM?

Either way, you have no idea what tune is on the ECU to be used, so not a good idea to use something you have no idea about.

Who is doing the tune?
He may be able to get a base tune for now, and then get a complete tune by the same Tuner after his upgrades.
The cost of the base tune would be applied to the final tune

I got tuned the week after my swap. For that week I was driving on a JDM ECU not using boost. I suggest getting a tune asap. It's worth the reassurance that everything is running correctly.

I'm going to advice my friend to tune as soon as possible.
We got the engine running late last night. The jdm power steering pump was whining bad even after adding proper fluid levels. Has anyone had this and how did you remedy the issue?

I run Castrol Dexron 4 trans fluid in mine and my 163k mile 2003 Wrx power steering pump has no issues

Thanks ^ gigs90
I compared yours to mine, I知 wondering thoughts on redline vs motul and I only use the car in summer and store it for the winter if that makes any difference. Anything to check for to decrease copper %? Thanks

I run Motul in my 2006 LGT and Redline in my 207 Wrx both are quality oils.

I drive the Wrx so little now it gets one or two oil changes a year maybe , Redline seems to hold up very well on the track.

Not at all , I know a bunch of BMW guys and they literally run Redline all year in their Time attack cars changing it once a year.

Its good oil.

Finally got my friend's bugeye running with the 207 after replacing the IACV.
We r having a weird issue though. The will start but after u shut if off and try to restart it, nothing, won't even crank. We also see the security light blinking on the cluster.
I was able to turn it back on by removing the neg battery cable and quiclkly starting it. As soon as we shut it down, the issue returns.

Is there an issue with running ps fluid instead of Dexron? I had them bring ps fluid and they didn't know it was suppose to be Dexron.

Why would you think using a quality oil like Redline be overkill?

You WANT to use quality lubricants in your car, not the cheapest stuff you can find.

Try re-setting the Security mode as described in your Owner's manual. That will probably clear up the issue. It's not just disconnect battery and then re-connect.

Owners manual states that the ATF should be DEX II or DEX III type ATF.
It also states that the P/S fluid should be DEX IIE or DEX III type.

Subaru specs this type of fluid for a reason. Using a non-specified fluid will damage the system.

You can use either for the PS fluid.
