Smile sorry again

its probably getting boring seeing the last 3 threads from me but this is what happens when you take a week off work to try and get your car going! ive developed a ticking which at first i thought may be a lifter rattling around but due to taking the sump off it sounds like its from the bottom end. Any guess's after an overheat. Heres a video i found of what it sounds like.

Re: sorry again

is ebay worth the risk?
If your going to rally it shouldnt you be building a nice new CDB engine to take the abuse?

Re: sorry again

Need some advice, forgetting ecu issues. What differences are there from a jdm 94 wrx to a 98 sti engine looms etc? Or would it be a straight swap with a remap?
