    hey guys, ive been lurking on this site for a while gathering information. Anyways, i have a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5rs, and im looking at swapping over an 02 2.0L wrx engine. Is there anything i should watch out for in particular on this motor, there is 78xxx miles on it?

    Not really, subaru motors are pretty strong, depending on how well it was takin care of. Without tearing it apart you really would not be able to tell if there was any problems. Unless you paid a very cheap cost, you might as well put it in, and if you have problems with getting it to run, tear it back out and take it apart.
