Engine Problems

Hi, I have a "T" reg 99 UK Impreza Turbo 2000 engine code EJ205

My engine has developed a serious knock and was wondering if anyone could advise weather it was worth getting it repaired and if so by who (I am located in Altrincham Nr Manchester Airport) or if anyone knew where i would find a replacement engine.

Thanks in Advance

Martin

Re: Engine Problems

The plate on the inner wing says EJ205, the coil pack is on off centre to the passenger side, Will any other engine go in without any modifications or does it have to be from a 99 - 00 uk2000 turbo??

Thanks

Re: Engine Problems

you can drop pretty much any EJ20 lump with your inlet manifold if its not the same.

Re: Engine Problems

Just so i have it straight in my mind any EJ20 from any Impreza will go in with my inet manifold with no other modifications needed?

Do you think its easier to replace rather than to repair?

Thanks
