Stock engines are hardly what anyone is talking about here though, but yes, 200+klm 2.5's are certianly out there, though I admit not as many as there are 2lts.

Considering the 255/257 was produced in late 06, only having just over 3 years you'd be hard pressed to find a motor that has had the chance to do that many km's. Average km's per year being 25,000 an 06 would be pushing it to get to 150,000 let alone 200,000.

Joes crate 207, Bennies and my cars 207's have all failed in less then 8,000kms. Surely you cant be telling me the 207 is the golden engine.

boost for boost, a 205 or 207 will outlast a 255 or 257.

there is just too much friction in a 2.5 (one reason why it is rev limited).

Most built motors would come sleeved if its a 2.5 wouldnt they?

Better yet Lyndo, just do what we were talking about last night. It'd be a weapon! and you;d even end up with some cash left over i reckon mate.

















edit: buy a motorbike instead lol!

I know we're not talking stock builds here, but still they have reliability issues when stock let alone built 'big'.

Wonder why the current STI's in Japland are powered by 207's if the 257 is such a great base for reliable power?

The current Jap 2.0 STI makes 304 hp/ 422nm v 257 Exports with 305 hp / 393nm.

Cossie 2.2's have been proven to be long term reliable and produce good power......257 cc isn't going to make a huge difference imho.

If cubes are your thing there are companies out there doing sleeved/ closed deck 2.6 & 2.7 207 based shorts too but your wallet will bleed...... $21000 for a stage 3 2713cc ej2027....How reliable in the long term ? Anyone's guess...

Not being a smart ass, but yours failed due to the oil pump trying to pump silicone through the oil galleries & it blew the main oil gallery feed o-rings........Hardly a design fault.

Ej257's were introduced to the US market in the 9/2003 for MY04.

It's worth noting that they started with 300 hp and are now 280hp......Hazard a guess why?

Just can't see that LS2 fitting in there bud... haha nah.
Im going to ring up about it tomorrow.

I thought about the 2.35 but it seems backwards to me. If you're using the shitty 2.5 block, you might aswell use it to get 2.5-2.7

The 2.35 is made from a 2.2 block.
