Haha! Ya, I'd concentrate on the EJ207 as well, no way I'd let that sit around too long being unused!!!

Saw your for sale thread on the CE28Ns, glad you kept them, otherwise I'd be buying them

My gas is not terrible here in Michigan.

But yes we are doing a tune. My tuner had to tune an s202 for California gas and he felt bad for the car.

Congrats on the motor looks to be in great condition.

I'm on my 2nd jdm v9 now on my whitebugeye and almost bought an S204 a couple times. Be careful with the turbo inlet there was a service bulletin about it a couple years back.

I'm going to look into my research stuff and see if I can't find it for you.

My tuner and I pulled it up.

Apparently the recirculating hose tube on the inlet was rubbing on the fuel rails cause car BBQ.

This week I got oem roof moldings to cover up the mounting points for the old cross bars. It looks nice and clean now.



This is how I will spend my weekend , Except maybe we will install Defi ZD clubsport and Defi RS gauge package.

Nice pickup with the s204 engine and I like the direction you've taken and are taking with this build

Can you check for any markings / blue paint on the engine block to indicate hand assembly like all s203/204/ r205 / s206 engines?

I saw your engine yesterday haha. Was up in Montreal doing some shopping at candyland. Looks good man, you'll love it.
Also picked up an unexpected gem for my wagon. A Varis cf hood, I'll post pics when I get it buffed and installed.
