I am new to the site.. I have never posted on any auto forums in the past rely but have built 6 or 7 cars.. I built a 01 2.5rs long ago but sold it when I picked up my 2002 wrx in 04 with a bad rod...

I pulled the ej20 and sold it and bought a brand new ej25 sti engine block and heads... The heads were ported and flow matched and the block was taken apart and the new sti rods and pistons were sold. To give any one who deals with crower cams how long ago I started the project. I then called Brian Crower and ordered my parts b4 having the best engine builder in town build the engine...

Inside the EJ:

Crower stage 4 cams
stainless over sized valves
double valve springs
titanium retainers
H-beam rods
CP pistons
they did not make a stroker crank yet.:mad:

I also picked up some bolt on parts:

Out side the EJ:

exedy twin disk clutch
cam gears
greddy inter cooler kit
greddy timing belt
greddy catch can
APS turbo
APS cold air intake
HKS moded bell mouth down pipe
HKS headers
HKS SSBOV
butter flys pulled from intake
new oil and water pump, sti cam flowers, 2001 2.5 RS ej25 head gaskets

Engine Management :


turbo xs delta
turbo xs wide band 02
DFI full 7 gauge set


now I am on body paint & air brushing:

House of cool green to purple...
