So it seems like BC 272ís are the cheapest and easiest option. Says you can use the stock wrx valvetrain, so then Iíd just need some new buckets. Sucks since I just converted these heads to shimless, and had to get new buckets already but oh well.

The new price is pretty good, but if I can find a used set that would be awesome.

Almost forgot about them. Called and they can do 272ís for $150 a cam. Definitely the cheapest option, and they said I could still use the stock valvetrain. Just send a set of wrx cams I have laying around and theyíll weld/regrind them.

The adding material/welding to the cams seems a little risky, but Iím sure they know what theyíre doing.

Thoughts?

I like the idea, but i donít think wrx cams are worth much. Pretty sure I bought a set on here for like $50 last year.

Ok so, semi bad news with the 2.2ís and a change of plans.

Basically, no 2.2 for now. The 22t block has bad crank walk damage and would need a serous line hone....and some other wear issues. The 22e block was in much better condition, but would still barely need a line hone. Lame!

So weíre going with a 2.0 or 2.5 block now.....and thatís my questions for you guys.....built 2.0 or built 2.5??? What say ye?

Iím leaning towards 2.0 because I donít like 2.5ís, but the extra displacement would help my power goals. I just prefer the 75mm crank and I canít afford a nice 2.5 destroker build right now. So Iím thinking 2.0 but Iím terrible at decisions so.......

What do you not like about 2.5s? Assuming both are receiving modifications won't any common issues with either be negligible? More displacement=more air assuming you don't want to rev to the moon.

I mainly prefer how the 75mm crank revs vs the 79mm. The extra displacement would be nice, but it just seems like the 2.0ís hold up better. Maybe I just have a bad taste from my LGT that blew itself up....but Iíve always liked the 2.0 and 2.2ís more.

Iíd like a 2.5 block destroker set up with the 75mm crank, but too pricey. This is already more than I wanted to spend since my 2.2 plan fell through.

I do agree that the 2.5 block would suit my grandma driving style better, and give better low end/spool.

What are you wired for to run? I would go 2.5 because I like the 251 MAP for N/A. If MAF, maybe a 253, my auto 2007 2.5i is pretty zippy. Car is also all together, no weight reduction, piggy GD, and a sun roof for the extra cherry on top, still zippy.

I have never driven a 22 N/A but I have one for sale.

I've been liking this ej206 enough that i have abandoned my plan to rebuild the ej22. Like you confirmed, I guess the older blocks are just getting too "old" and arent straight anymore. If you dont want hte ej22 pistons, im gonna keep them around for my "maybe someday" eg33 build. But for now this winter "im just going to throw some rods and pistons in this EJ206 and push it back to 30psi. I think its the 9:1 compression that makes it driveable
