okay so i just got a 2001 rs i was wondering without all the big wording could i build my ej25 block into a ej257 ?
Nope.

You could by a 257, but the different casting is what makes it a 257 instead of a regular ej25.

Short answer - No.

However, guys have used EJ25D or EJ251 blocks for boosted builds. Here's one example, lots of good info.

All that having been said...Swapping remains the most economical option for power improvement.

What are everyones thoughts on STI decals on a car even if it is not entirely an STI? I have v6 STI front fenders/bumper on my 00 rs and i have a STI decal on the rear. Does this get me a bad rap? I do feel a little bit ashamed as it is not a true STI

Hello everyone,
Been a member of Toronto subaru club for 4 years and figured I would join here to maybe find more stuff for my 2009 wrb impreza hatch. I am doing currently getting my engine replaced. I spun a bearing after 260,000. From what I hear that's a pretty good life for a motor.

Hello all i'm from the east tn area, I just bought an '07 2.5I. It has about 130k on it.
It's my first subaru, i've wanted one since I discovered rally racing years ago.
My plans are to do lots of suspension and chassis work, no crazy engine swaps or turbos. When I drove it away after buying it I was really surprised at how fast it was. Yes I bought it without even test-driving it (The owner was a good friend and keeps things well maintained).
I put new shifter bushings in it last night but the overall floppyness is coming from somewhere else. I'm trying to get it in proper running condition before i start with the aftermarket parts. (coilovers, braces, etc.)
Anyways this place is a wealth of information. Thanks.

If people don't want to pay 900 bucks for Borla Headers for a 99 RS GM Auto. Can I just get any eBay UEL headers and wrap them? Any advice is appreciated!
