Hi guys, I’ve recently decided I really want to ej207 swap a gc8 style chassis 2.5rs, looked into it a bit, seen some sick builds and decide I want to do it. I’m currently scouring all the auctions and Craigslist for a good deal on a 2.5rs and just trying to find a nice one that’s is good shape. Needless to say I’m on a loose budget of around 8-15k including the car (hoping to get the car for under 5k) and I’ve seen guys do the swap for under 14k. I’ve got a friend who has a guy who can import engines from japan but I’ve done a bit of research and found that if I want the engine and the 6 speed sti tranny it would cost around 5-8K. now here’s where I’m getting a bit lost, I know heaps of guys have done this swap so I figured there would be a lot of people who would know what to do. Anyways I’m just a bit confused as to what I’d need to do extra to complete the swap and make it work. I’ve never researched much into engine swapping and I know I need to but I’m just tryna get any help I can. So anyways; here’s the things I want to know. what modifications to the drive train will I need to do to make it work with the 6speed sti tranny? Will I need to buy a wiring harness or does that generally come with the engine? how drop in and bolt on compatible will the swap be? Cause as far as I know it would be pretty basic as almost every ej engine will fit in any ej car. what modifications will I need to do to the exhaust to make it fit? and what other little fitment or technical issues will I come across? anyways thanks for the help!
