Yes take the whole thing! I believe everything on the V7 STI was forged plus its an EJ207. If you could, swap everything over.

if you buying pieces then i guess it would be most benefical to purchase the heads. you can mate them with the ej205 shortblock and kinda have a poor man's ej207 swap but the bottom end would be weak but can be modified with aftermarket parts.

all in the end it's better just to buy a longblock and call it a day.

wooh wooh!!!!!


the ej207 v7 i a far better motor than yours......You will need the ecu with it too. and some extra wiring to run the avcs but it's easy. I don't recommend running it without the avcs thought cause it sucks

Get the entire engine plus the ECU and what ever harness he's using. The V7 EJ207 is a sheer joy to command.
