Hi I have a 2002 Impreza with 100k miles. The car had a crack in the plastic neck of the radiator and began to overheat. I didnt notice it until it had been in the red for some time. The fluids are fine (in their proper place) and the only problem seems to be the radiator/thermostat. The turbo is frozen and not making any boost. The car runs but I was thinking of doing an overhaul.
I need your help on the best course of action to do with the car. Power upgrades would be nice but $ is a small issue. I want the car to be fun and reliable again. I have just under 3,000$ to do this.
Motor swap? rebuild? what are my options?
Thanks for your input.
