Fng

Hey y'all,
Just wanted to say hello. On my second WRX, and in the middle of an engine swap from a usdm ej 205 to a jdm 205 with avcs. Any advice or tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

So where I'm at now is:
Cobb intake, catless up pipe, Cobb downpipe, borla xr1 catback, walborough 355lph fuel pump, sti pinks, jdm ej205 w/single avcs.
The motor itself came from jdm import in Long Beach CA. It came with a blown head gasket, and as a consequence I had to rebuild it. At the moment, the block is being bored and honed to 92.5mm and has the following components waiting to go in: J&E Pistons, Manley H-beams, stock (but polished and balanced) cams and crank, GSC valves and springs, also the heads have been redone including three angle valve seat grind, and backcut valves. Oh and a 600rpm higher stall torque converter. Anything I'm missing? Car will be used for a DD and light rallycross. Any advice will be appreciated.

So here's where we are now, just did the timing today. Big thanks to Jimmy Veitch @rodknock racing, and Ryan Bastin @ metal desire for the assist.
