    I'm not sure about doing an EJ20/25 hybrid. I have no info on that. It may very well be possible. It's very common in the Honda community though. I've seen great results with swapping heads on Hondas.

    EJ20 is the 2.0L WRX motor from 02-05.
    EJ25 is the 2.5L STi motor for 04-current, and the WRX motor for 06-current.

    You said something about a 2.5 block with WRX heads thus resulting in an EJ20/25 hybrid. EJ20 heads + EJ25 block = EJ20/25 hybrid. Got it?
