HELP PLEASE! 02 wrx hybrid swap
Whats up guys. I need some help. The mechanic I take my car too is selling a 2.5 short block that is ready for a hybrid swap. He said he'd do the swap to my 02 wrx and throw in the sti intercooler, sti turbo and the injectors all for $3000. it sounds like a good deal but im not sure and dont know much about the hybrid swap. any info on the swap and if its a good idea would help a lot. thanks!

Very torquey and prone to detonation. I liked my hybrid motor(s) more than my STI longblock. How many miles on the block and what year is it off of?

Even without the turbo you need injectors and a tune.

It has 60-70k and the block is off of an 05 sti.

but yeah i figured it would need a tune after the swap.
