My engine blew up on Sunday with severe rod knock. I probably need to make a decision by tomorrow on what to repair and/or upgrade. It's an EJ205 with STi uppipe, TXS downpipe, and AccessPort 2.0 OTS stage 2 map.
If I do anything other than replace with stock EJ205 and TD04, what do you recommend for more low end torque and no more lag? If Subaru made an STi wagon for sale today, I'd dip into my retirement or go into debt for it. But all I can really afford is to replace the motor and turbo (rebuild v. replace?) and maybe spend a little on power upgrade.
Thanks to Brian H (former owner and mod here and NASIOC) for pulling over on his bike and helping diagnose when I was pulled over in the mountains on the way to Winter Park.
