    Engine replacment

    Hello all, I am new to the Subaru world. I have owned Honda's all my life. This is my first wrx build. I picked up a 2004 wrx and I need to replace the engine. What is the most common swap to put in the beast?
    I was looking at EJ20T.

    Depends on your goals with the car. Obviously the most reliable and low cost swap is an OEM EJ205.

    Stock EJ205 can easily hold 300whp.

    If that's your goal, I'd find a stock low-mileage motor from a 2004-2005 WRX (2004-2005 received the cross-drilled crank from the EJ207) and directly drop in the motor.
