Hello everyone, I am new to the forum so please forgive if this thread has been cover a million times. There is a 02 WRX Wagon that is close to my house for a pretty good price. The one problem I spoke with the guy and he told me it has a rod knock which I know is a killer for any engine. I would consider myself able around the garage and handy with anything. I have done some research and found used WRX 2.0 motors for a mere 1500 bucks. Is what I am seeking is some light, would it be practical to purchase the Wagon and replace the motor, also would it be possible to do in a 2 car garage, time, major tools, etc.... Any input would be great guys, thanks for everything.
