the jdm ej20 is also known as the ej207, as opposed to the ej205, has a higher redline among other things. it is used in their stis instead of the ej257 which is used in the american stis

Yeah, the redline and internals are great. Ask basco about it, hes running an ej207 with an FP green. He loves it.
