Follow the factory service manual for the 25D to reassemble everything & make sure bolts & screws go back in their exact same spot. The end result will look just like a 25D.
If there are any questions, I'll answer them to the best I can. Btw, the final compression ratio I calculated with this particular engine was 8.8:1, which should be somewhat decent until I add a turbocharging kit. To anyone wondering if our pistons come up over the deck, yes, they do.
If you run into any questions and doing your turbo setup I could probably help I did a similar build with a closed deck ej22 except with jdm ej20 dohc heads and turboed it in my legacy
