    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.

    I would like to build the engine up a bit. 300+ whp would be good.

    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.
