I guess if you can get it cheap and be unique, but when I looked into the swap the V9 and V10 EJ207s were stupid priced.

it would be nice if I could just drop a version 9, but there will be too much complications, version 10 is a straight forward swap but very expensive. So the EJ20x is a great option, I can get one for a grand and get 300whp out of it.

Yeah thats a good deal.

Big time!


Im no Subaru expert, this will be my first swap project, hopefully someone else has done it and can give me a few headers of anything out of the ordinary i may run into (fingers crossed).

hi mate, note that the jdm 2L STIs came with a slightly different turbo, the vf49. might be worth checking with your tuner on the spool characteristics between the two but going from the USDM 2.5 to a JDM 2.0 i would preferably change to the JDM turbo to keep it matched and responsive as it was designed to be.
