Turbo 2000 engine upgrade

Hey all,
Can anyone tell me of the wrx/sti engine from a classic will be a straight swap for the original standard turbo 2000 engine? My haed gaskets have gone and the negine has done 170000 miles so think it might be better in the long term to change the engine, will a wrx/sti one fit straight in?? if not what would need changing?
cheers, chris

Re: Turbo 2000 engine upgrade

your best course of action would be rebuild, second hand engines are just that, no way to prove the history or condition, and as said you have to get hold of all the parts

headgaskets are a strip down and rebuild job anyway, so can bve fully checked out when engine cracked open. milage on blocks isn't a bad thing, repetative heat cycles makes the block stronger. most big builds tend to have used blocks in them, not brand spankers
