aww man. bummer this happend to you period but if it had been in a month or so i could help you out because my garage would be done. if you can wait that long i am more than willing to help.

oh man yea i wish i could wait, but its my only car. :( stupid engine!

who needs an engine anyways seriously.

most shops would have it done for like 5 or 6 grand including the engine.

if i was you id either go to a salvage yard or just get a new sti shortblock and bump up your displacement. the price difference is > 500 bucks for a complete sti engine compared to complete wrx engine.

do you think a shop could pick up an sti engine and do install for all around 5 or 6 grand still? i dont even care about the sti engine i just need a frickin engine but that would be sweet haha.

I have a cherry picker and an engine stand. If you would like to barrow it we can work somthing out. I'd love to help but the only experience I have is pulling and installing civic motors. I've done that a bunch. I'd love to get experience on pulling a subie motor. There all the same... kindof... maybe.
