So I took my heads off recently and and discovered that one of my cylinders was fried. it is scored and burnt pretty badly. I need to either get the block repaired or just buy a new block. Does anyone know a good place in the NJ area to take the block to so i can get it milled? Its an EJ207 so i dont want to just throw it out.

Just swap the pistons (and rods if you want) into an EJ205 block, it's the same thing. The Ver 7+ EJ207 blocks are the ones that are different from the USDM WRX blocks.

I was told that the EJ207 Ver 5/6 have better cooling then USDM EJ205's.

My ver5 207 block is being rebuilt right now. From what I know, the block is open deck just like an ej205, rods are cast like the 205, but the pistons are forged. Also the crank is different, 205 crank will not work in an early 207 block. My rebuilder mech had to source a ver7 crank - apparently that works and is better than the ver5/6 cranks.
