    Prices for rebuilt motor

    Hey everyone i have a 2013 wrx right now and I'm undecided if I'm going stage 2 this coming spring or not. If I do I want to make sure i have enough funds for a rebuilt motor. I'm seeing prices from 3k up to 10k lol
    So my ? For you guys is would 4-5k put aside be enough to rebuild my engine for a reliable stage 2 wrx? possibly bump up to the 350whp range.
    I won't be doing any of the work so the cost as to include labor.
    Thanks

    This depends entirely on what will be "built" into the rebuilt block. But honestly if you have a built block it is no longer "stage 2". It will be far beyond that. Stage two is strictly bolt on mods, that being an intake and a full turbo back exhaust with a tune. Whether that be protune or with a Cobb Accessport is entirely up to the owner.

    So I guess in summation, I'm confused as to what you want out of your build and what you are asking. Or is this a question as to how much money to set aside for a rebuilt motor when (if) you blow up your motor on stage 2?

    Well I'm not entirely sure about that. IMO if you do tune properly and install the parts properly and don't drive the car around like a jackass everywhere then you can avoid the problem of a blown up motor all together....

    Including labor, I'd be thinking you'd need at least $4k-5k...that'd probably be for the price of rebuilding your current motor.

    Yea I don't drive my car like an ass at all . I just like knowing i have the power when I want to use it. It's strictly a dd.
    I just called 2 shops one quoted me at 11k and the other 3500. Big difference

    No way of knowing...9 million different factors go into that. Generally speaking, rebuilt motors have a tendency to not last near as long as stock even though they are made to handle more power for that shorter life cycle.

    But I will also say this...if you want a rebuilt motor that's more robust...staying at Stage 2 is probably going to be a waste.

    A properly tuned S2 car should last as long as a stock one

    Seems like there is way more confidence on clubwrx than nasioc. I've read so many threads on nasioc that it's been scaring the **** out of me

    If your car blows up @ S2, there's either something off with the tune or the car would've blown up stock.

    I know it's a good idea to always watch for knock count and everything but just curious if having a cobb v3 and just running the gauges at all times.
