Looks like it's in great shape. Nice pick.

EJ207 showed up. Ended up with a GDBG EJ207 instead of the GDBA/B EJ207 like I originally wanted. I guess I can take better cams, crank, and rods over just forged pistons. It was also cheaper.


$4k USD for a GDBA/B EJ207

Took awhile to get the engine in because of some minor delays.
  • GC A/C compressor.
    • you HAVE to change the bracket.
  • replace oil pan (damaged during shipping).
    • Dorman 264-364 is a cheaper alternative to 11109AA15.
  • ceramic coat Grimm Speed exhaust manifolds, crosspipe, EWG uppipe.
  • metal turbo inlet (PITA to install, go rotated to save yourself a headache if you're going with a bigger turbo).
  • FP Green HTZ.
  • DIY stiffened engine mounts.
    • metal plates and 3m Windo Weld.

Grabbed them from a 2.5RS part out. Sedan and Wagon sills are the same.

Default DIY Map adapter, hybrid MAF adapter, BPV mod

Map adapter
  1. The pigtail can be purchased on Ballenger Motorsports. Part number is CONN-85700.
  2. I'll be using a 3.5 Bar AEM sensor. Since I don't have a tool to crimp the provided terminals I ordered a 3 wire coolant temperature sensor pigtail for a GM LS1.





Hybrid MAF adapter
  1. The pigtail can be purchased from Ballenger Motorsports. Part number is CONN-86059.
  2. I'll be using the OEM IAT sensor under the manifold. If you don't want to cut and re-solder the plug another option is to find and cut the EJ253 purge valve solenoid plug.





BPV mod
  1. On the body of the BPV, locate the boost signal and drill a 1/16" hole into it. Shake out metal shavings.
  2. Plug the old boost signal hole. I used an M5 shelf pin and some JB Weld.

Late update because I've been busy with moving and of course, lazy. The car was up and running by April 1st. Proceeded to plasti-dip it a week later. I regret not wrapping it instead.
Got the car tuned (CarBerry) while I was in WI but didn't get to finalize the Flex Fuel. 91oct @ 23PSI on a FP Green HTZ.
