Subaru JDM Version Engine Guide

Updated: Aug 9, 2019


There can be a lot of confusion about JDM engine codes and version numbers so we thought we would list out what means what. This is a very general guide but should provide some insight.

Version literally means which version of the Subaru impreza it is. V1 is the first impreza built, V2 is the second impreza built, etc. The Version number was mostly used in JDM Subarus though they stopped labeling them as V1 or V4 after the year 2000. If you are importing a JDM engine and the importer calls it a V7, V8, V9 or V10 - make sure to figure out specifically which year of car the engine is coming from.
