ECS are some of my best friends and have been nothing but great to me and everyone I know, so I will certainly plug them. Their prices are very reasonable too.

Area1320 is in PA too and I know they could do this too. I think they're closer to Philly though.

Ya I've heard nothing but good things and have emailed Paul a couple times and found him really helpful. I'm thinking it might be worth the extra distance to get it done right the first time

I've had a swap done at ECS and they did a great job, I've known the guys for years and anytime I have a question they are very helpful. If you have the means I would recommend sending your car their way.

both Area1320 and ECS are great places to go. both have awesome customer service and a TON of knowledge. area1320 is local to you so that may be easier. you wont go wrong at either place...i absolutely trust either of them with my cars.

Bring it to your local Suby mechanic or do it yourself with your friends. An EJ205--->EJ207 swap is simple and easy. No wiring involved unless you want AVCS. Everything bolts up.

^agreed. Since there is no wiring, get your hands dirty and jump in there. You'll save yourself a bunch of cash and you'll get the pride of doing your own work on your car.
