Default EBAY EJ207s

Anyone know if these ebay semi closed deck 207s are any good upgrade from a GC8 open deck 207.
If its from the 02 model sti's they should be good for upto 400whp correct?

Maybe try calling around some Perth workshops, you might be able to get a better price on a short block.

That mob is a actual Subaru Dealer and their short blocks are covered by Subaru Australia on warranty claims looked into theses years ago and asked about this due to being on eBay.

It won't be much of an upgrade from your current shortblock as you will already have forged pistons, only difference being open vs. semi closed deck block. IMO it is not a worthwhile upgrade unless you popped your current motor. Email Jarvis Subaru direct they will give you a better price as they won't have to pay eBay fees.
