Paul! You is da man! i love the Subaru. I have two of their cars and both run great. One has 113000 and I would jump in it tomorrow and with out hesitation drive it cross country and back. Chris told me a story where a local car dealer has a EJ-22 that had 300000 and put in a car cause the engine ran to well to junk. Paul, I do have a very important question for you. I have a EJ-20 STI Turbo I want to use some day. It has a bent timing belt cam gear. Can you get parts for the EJ-20 in Austrailia? If so would you e-mail me a supplier for subaru JDM parts?

Tim, Yes it is a quad cam. The gear is a cast steel gear. It is located (looking right at the gears)on the lower left hand side.I believe I counted the number of teeth. I think it was 48.
Paul, JDM is the japanese domestic market. The engine came out of a car in Japan, but the engines were in Subarus in Austrailia before the US.The engine I have was in a Legacy. It had 8900 miles on it when the car got hit. It was a EJ-20 STI FI turbo. Produced 245 hp.The engine looks like new. Just I can't seem to get the gear.I went to the local Sub dealor and their gears would not work as they were fiber or aluminum with a different configuration. Bummer! I will post a picture of the gear if anyone can or knows of a junk yard or parts store for JDM market engines.Thank-you

Here are the pictures of the EJ-20 timing gear. Anyone can assist me as to how to find one or repair this one? It has a fracture on the mounting face and slightly bent.

Larry,
Did you have Subaru check the EJ20 turbo sprockets? The Impreza WRX is available with a turbocharged EJ20.

Yes, Don. The WRX didn't hit the US till 2000 or 2001. The sprockets are different and won't fit. I am trying to get a address for the JDM market resourse.
