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.

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.
