How much? Those cam specs sound odd, but I'm sure I could work with them.

WOW I guess I forgot to really update this thread. Well this shortblock got finished and is currently sitting in my basement, don't ask. I have plans to swap out the motor in a WRX wagon if I can get one cheap enough, but I still need a set of heads to finish this motor out, but damn the prices are crazy for 2.0L heads anymore. Cheapest I've found was $375+$150shipping for heads with 6 bend valves. I'm hoping to find a wagon with a blown motor with heads I can use, but I'm not holding my breath. I still have to get my trans apart and rebuild in my current WRX, plus recovery from my surgery so things have been a bit on the slow side. Meh maybe this spring I will come across what I need, that or a winning lottery ticket...lol

So you used a 2.0 block? I thought your typical 2.34 was a destroked 2.5l. Either way, yeah a good set of complete heads is running in the 650+ range these day. AVCS add another 100 or 200.

Yeah I used a 2.5L block, but I prefer to use 2.0L heads and have them ported out as they have a bit more meat in them. I am really hoping to get a wagon to do the swap to and hopefully use the heads on it. Man even WRX wagons with blown motors are still $4000+ what the hell is wrong with people, we are in a recession....

You're feeling the pain my one friend is...he's looking for a used car and everyone is running high on prices. I guess people don't want to get rid of stuff in a recession, so they jack the price up? Who knows. This is on private sellers btw....not dealerships.

Well keep in mind I'm not looking in a large area either. The closet one to me is 87miles away which isn't to bad, but they want $5600 for a wagon with a blown motor...!?!?!?

Yeah the wife pretty much said that it was a bit to much. I have heard a rumor that a guy down the road from me has one with a blown trans that wants to sell and it's all stock. Might just see if I can talk to him about low prices...lol

Wouldn't it just benefit you to buy the 2.0 head NEW?

Yeah they are like $640 then shipping at that price aftermarket heads would be cheaper. I found a couple of sets, but they all have broken pieces or bend valves and they still want upwards of $400 plus shipping. It's called a recession people. I have money to spend, but you want retarded amounts for stuff I don't have to buy...People need to wake up and think a bit.

Why you mad bro? LOL

Considering you are looking at getting a whole "spare car"... it's cheaper than what you've been seeing.

my 2¢

Well that's based on price. The ones that are in my price range have no motor to start with and the plan is to have the motor ready to drop in with limited down time. We shall see how things progress I'm still recovering from surgery so I'm not really able to do much for a couple more weeks...Boooooooooooooo...
