Pulled the engine and trans this weekend along with the front x-member and front suspension. Also pulled the mangled passenger fender.

Next up, body work. Also, since my GS700e decided to drop an exhaust valve, I now need to buy a new bike since both cars will be apart soon.

Hey, is that Agean blue or a different color? I have a 96 and it looks similar to my paint color. I wasn't aware they had that hood and headlight setup on something with that paint code. Could be the lighting. Like your project. Gives me ideas and things to look out for when I get further down the road on my project.

nice work!

I kind of wish it was Aegean blue but it's mystic blue metallic. It's 97 so it got the exterior facelift but still had the older interior. 97 was weird year.

Up on jack stands, radiator, power steering, etc pulled. Yankin' the EJ207.



Although my engine seemed healthy, my HD exedy clutch had taken its toll on my thrust bearing. My crankshaft thrust was 5x over the factory limit. I decided that she was in need of a rebuild WITH UPGRADES muahahaha

Group N mounts on the left, GC8 STi on the right


Timing belt cranks and chunking




valve cover, camshafts and buckets removed. I bought a cam pulley tool from street rays; well worth it. I'll try to remember to get pics of that. I hadn't recovered my engine stand from my friend at this point so this is working off the crane haha.


Got my stand back




Head off. Dirty forged EJ207 pistons. Make an offer if you'd like them



old, inferior GC8 pan off. Upgrading to a 05+ STi pan and pick-up




YIKES! first look at what extreme crank walk/thrust did to my EJ20G block


#3 thrust bearing


old EJ20G rods. For sale if anybody wants them. make an offer


EJ20G crankshaft. Journals are still good but the weights have contacted the block. Probably will get scrapped

Since both cars are apart, I've been driving this old girl around. I call her "The Grandma Wagon". (see license plate) She was pretty rough but for $1000 what do you expect. I threw the Buddyclub 17's on there along with the WRX seats, charged the A/C and changed the oil. She's a champ

Plans for the engine build are pretty simple. Since I've built and sold a few stroker 2.1 blocks, why not build my own.

JDM EJ20G short block - closed deck, oil squirters, getting bored to 92.5mm, #3 converted to #5 thrust bearing to accommodate phase 2 crankshafts. Conversion and boring is being done by Motion Machine Inc in Virginia



v5/6 EJ207 heads - New valve seals. Cleaning up the casting marks in intake and exhaust ports, nothing too wild. Gasket match intake manifold and intake ports.

EJ257 crankshaft - brand new, 12200AA330, heat treated

King XPG main and rod bearings - STD size, 52mm, #5 thrust

EJ257 forged rods - These will be adequate for my power goals.

Mahle PowerPak stroker pistons - 92.5mm, 79mm stroke 8.0:1 CR. Opted not to get the powerpakplus because of my power goals and I wanted a tighter PTW clearance. 4032 is strong enough

ARP head studs, OEM main/case bolts

11mm oil pump - extra shim, two total. Gates Racing timing belt, tensioner and idlers. OEM water pump

05-07 STi oil pan + Moroso pick-up tube

OEM v5/6 gasket set - OEM HG's, etc. Grimmspeed 8mm phenolic IM spacers.

GR (08-14) STi TMIC. 02+ BPV conversion

GSP(?) silicone turbo inlet - this was a bit of a gamble but mine was torn sooo

New friction plate for my fidanza flywheel part# 229501. Apparently the same as the older supra's.

Group N engine mounts

Innovate dual oil psi + oil temp gauge
