I'm look'n to do some serious mods, so.....

OK, heres the deal, I have a 2000 Impreza 2.5L RS, & i found a JDM STi engine :twisted: for $6500 :x. I was just wondering if it would be worth my while to invest in it, or if the price is even any good. The other thing I want to do, is put on a super charger. All I want ot know about this, is, is it posible, and if so, who should i get it from :?:

Good idea, there are mixed opinions about the 2.5RS - For a bigger engine the power is seriously reduced.. $6500 if say 3250 for a round about figure (is that right?)....

i saw an 18 thousand mail clocked STI engine (with pumps, hoses and the bits) for sale: 1750 to other day, cant remember where! :x hate it when that happens....

No doubt, one of the American registered users will help you out with this one.

Check out the shortblocks for sale at COBB...

$6500 sounds pretty steep to me. :cry:

Thats seems like a resonably priced bid

6500 is out of control- you can get the USDM STi engine for much less.

maybe this was a fully built engine? but yes I agree, $6,500 is a little pricey.

Let me check with my friend Stephen, his dad owns a company in New Jersey that specifically imports JDM motors. A buddy of mine just got a JDM MR2 engine from them (for his AE86 Corolla) . I will find out if they have a web site, etc.
