Hi guys,

So my buddy has had a 02 WRX with a turbo EJ25 rotting in his yard for 6 years. I offered to buy it and he’s basically giving it away. It turns out it’s got an EJ257 in it right now with forged internals and the 2.0 heads. The current EJ257 block has a crack in it so i’ve been looking for a new engine.

My original plan was just to buy a full EJ25 engine and then swap my heads onto that engine and drop the motor in along with a new ECU and injectors (current ECU is tuned for e85). I know nothing about Subarus so does this sound like the best idea? I saw an entire EJ25 engine with accessories that came out of a subaru legacy on ebay for a good price and I was thinking about going that route.

My other option was to just buy an ej25 short block and swap the forged internals from my cracked block to the new short block. This would be more work I understand but maybe this is a better idea?

Thanks again for the help,
