Going into next season I will be re-building my engine and seeing as I have to spend the money I am going to do it properly.
My idea was to put in a ej207 short block in. Now according to the mod sheet I would have to add an additional 30 points because its not the OEM one and puts me out of street.
The reason I want to put an ej207 is from all reports its a very tough block and frankly I dont have the money to rebuild an engine again.
What is your view on this ? As I see it, I don't see it being a gain as power output will be roughly the same apart from it being a new engine compared to my previous one that had done 350,000 Ks.
On another note is it right that on the mod sheet all Rexs from 2009 up are lumped into the one category?
Personally I don't think any of the new chassis rexes should be compared to earlier models. There are so many major improvements to the chassis that negate mods such as strut bars and sway bars.
once again just my 2 cents on the issue.. and maybe a buck more
Technically, whilst it may not necessarily allow you more power in your setup it is an engine capable of more power which means people that have that motor for example may tend to tune more aggressively etc and squeeze more power out of it than say an EJ205.
We can all agree, the Ej207 is the best factory subaru motor produced! (coming from a ej257 owner hehe ).
Obviously the rules cant cater for every scenario, so what i would suggest is you fill out a mod-sheet and email it to Motorsport and we can discuss further.
RE: 2009+ at this stage they are categorised together... but will be something we investigate further for 2017. In factory form, the 2009-2014 is capable of more power which negates some of the handling improvements in the newer chassis.
