Throw in bearings, gaskets, timing belt kit, etc. and you see what I mean.

How much are you looking to spend? Do you need them complete?

Ridge10 is an unknown

I spent 2k on a 2008 WRX engine and tranny for my FXT. It was said to have bent valves but it didnt, suckerrrrrr, did a leakdown test and it was ready to go. Unfortunately that was after I bought a master gasket set, and now Im trying to sell that and the tranny, and other leftovers. I didnt really realize how much a timing belt and water pump kit was. Dang. So now Im around $2650 in the hole after I bought the motor, spark plugs, timing belt kit, fuel pump and un needed gasket set. Hopefully I can sell the tranny, block, heads, gasket set and others misc. stuff.... And hopefully it all goes back together as planned.

Rex2002, I got some B25 sti heads for sale... yea? lol
