Really need help

Need help. I bought an 02 wrx but it has a totally different engine. I'm really trying to learn more about my car. I know it has a ej25 block ( which I have no idea what that is out of). And I have no idea what head is on there, and I have no idea were to look and find it. Really need to find it cause I'm having camshaft position sensor problems! Any help would be appreciated.

Guess I missed the boat on this one....

I would say that it's important to know which motor you have, and if those heads are stock with that motor or from a different motor type(i.e. 2.0L heads on a 2.5L block, etc, etc) If you bought this car this way you can never know, unless the owner told you the truth, what engine might be in the car.

An ej25 could be out of any number of cars. There were several ej25 motor types. ej251, ej255, ej257 just to name a few.

Try and find the numbers on the front of the block...should look like this;
B25C
700(this number will be either 700,701,702,703)

They might be hard to see because they are behind the timing cover, but you might be able to see them. The engine code is for an STi motor
