    Are you planning on rebuilding it your self? Your diagnosis of a "blown lifter" seems suspicious..

    No I was thinking of taking it to jms in San Antonio so they can do it. And what do you mean?

    Exactly how do you know the lifter has "blown"?

    The reason your diagnosis is suspect is because the WRX has solid lifters, how that would "blow" in any way, shape, or form, is beyond me.

    Also, the rebuild kit you linked doesn't do anything for the valve train, it's a bottom end rebuild kit, including rods, pistons, bearings, gaskets, and head studs.

    And FYI, if you have a 2007 WRX, you can save yourself some time and leave off the 2.5 and boosted parts. That all goes without saying, unless you've done some extensive engine work.

    Well I took it to Subaru they did a diagnostics and they said I had no compression in one of my pistons what so ever and they said that the lifter and piston is blown. I never got a sheet or a copy of anything from my diagnostic so idk I just wanna replace all my internals with out spending to much money what do you guys suggest I do?

    I think somebody was somewhat talking out of their ass, to be honest. There might be a burnt valve, or something on top of a bad piston, but I highly doubt there is something wrong with any of the lifters in the heads. If there really is no compression in one of the cylinders, though, the engine has to come out and come apart in order to see exactly what's wrong and what is needed to fix it.

    If you want to get this done for the least amount possible, you should probably look into a used longblock. Rebuilding the engine is going to cost hundreds in labor alone, not to mention the cost of the parts, and machining. If you want a stock car, with stock power capabilites, just have the bad block swapped out with a known good used one. From the sounds of things, you won't be doing this work yourself, right?

    You paid for a diagnosis yet never received anything in writing?!

    Pretty much what Anub1s already said. ej motors don't have traditional lifters, if you're getting no compression on a cylinder then the next step will either be to do a leak down test, or just pull the engine and remove the heads (since you already know you're going to have to). My money would be on a broken ring land, but it could be something else.. hard to know since you never listed mods or anything. If it is something in the head then that rebuild kit won't do you any good.

    JMS can tear it down and investigate what parts are needed to fix it. I've been there once after hearing good things about them. My first impression was that they seem fairly professional, they work quickly, and generally seem to know what they're doing/talking about. I have heard rumors of some Subaru work they've botched in the past, but who knows how much truth there is to that.

    You have options as to how much you want to upgrade while it's apart, and more often than not you're better off ordering parts individually rather than in a package deal.
