Welcome aboard Ant that’s a stunning looking wagon
Yup that's kinda what I was told. I had the heads reconditioned and cleaned up.. they were ok overall but decided to be sure. They had a tiny skim.. so I fitted a 0.8mm cosworth head gasket kit and arp studs too so its a bit stronger but i would say my comp ratio is about the same given the oem gaskets are 0.7mm from what I've read up. Anyway it feels nice to drive.. turbo is touch laggy compared to skylines and dual ball bearing turbos i used to run but I dont mind.. the other thing got me into more trouble than not haha!Welcome to Type-RA!
the EJ207 likely will take 400 given its new. The gearbox, if it’s the original 5 speed won’t like that much power.
Interesting stuff that. Strange they are prone to failing from factory... so with the 2.5 is it essentially the 207 block but bored out more or is it actually a slightly bigger block ?Yeah, the 2.5’s are a fair bit torquier and are also well known for failing. HG’s and rings being fairly common. I wouldn’t be buying one that’s not been rebuilt by a reputable builder.
