vdc didn't come out untill 01, but obviously yours did. jdm models are some times a half year ahead of the USDM.

That's right. European, Japanese and other countries got early models. Just consider yours a 2001 when looking for parts and information. Also, when looking, be sure to note that it is Japan built. Some parts will differ.

Thanks guys, I guess there won't be much of a difference though parts-wise between the 00 and 01? Its the same EJ25 engine isn't it? I guess my head gasket will still blow..

Everyplace else on the planet except the US has the model year designated as the year it's released. I think it's a marketing thing actually. eg The US's 2001 is everyone elses 2000.
