the Infamous rebuild
Ill make this short and cut to the chase, i spun a rod bearing in my 2002 wrx 2.0 and now it needs either a new engine or a rebuild. I have been thinking a lot about just buying a used engine with 80k+ on it but now i am really considering just buying the short block and rebuilding it. i am a mechanic and look at all engine as the same basic prinicple with different parts so i know it will be challanging but i wanted a few peoples opinion before i made the final decision.
So, should i buy a used or build the short block and use all the parts from the old engine?
