Default Looking at 02 wrx with apparent ej207

As the title states I'm looking at purchasing a 02 bugeye. Owners words here " ej207. With Manley everything(forged) with 2011 wrx non avcs bore matched heads and Manley sport compact valve springs. Supertech valve guides. Manley sport compact valves. 32.5 and 35 mm valves." My question is wouldn't this be an ej207 block with 255 heads? I haven't heard of this combo and can't find much info on it. Any input would be great!

First issue I see:

ej207. With Manley everything(forged) with 2011 wrx non avcs bore matched heads

Why would someone get rid of the EJ207 heads and replace them with 2011 heads?
Why would some remove the AVCS?

The 2011 WRX has a 2.5L motor.
The EJ207 is a 2.0L motor.

You don't bore match a 2.5L head to a 2.0L motor. it's the other way around.

Where is the documented proof of all this supposed work?
Run away from this.

Pretty much what Jack said. None of that makes sense.

I contacted the motor builder he said that's not a combination he does. He said he's locating the build sheet and calling me back today
