    Loud Clacking Noise

    hey whatsup you guys, names Scott from Miami FL brand new to the site and also to my stock 02 wrx. i jus got it in december with 94k miles already had a couple minor problems with it already, had to replace the mass air flow sensor and some parts in the linkage. when i got it the linkage had no bushing so the shifter was goin everywhere which makes me believe that the previous owner abused the engine?..thats besides the point the other day i was driving away from a light and i noticed that im not acclerating as fast so i turn down the music and i hear a loud clacking noise, i pull over, i look under the car and the motor/tranny was shaking couldn't tell which one..and as i have the clutch pushed in the motor shuts off... any one know what it could be? possibly a main bearing? and anyone know someone in the area who could help it out on this prob? would really appreciate it. thanks

    try revving it out of gear and see if the clacking happens at a certain rpm. If it does, its probably your motor starting to go. It could also be an exhaust rattle?

    First obviously make 100% sure thats the problem...Yes an STI block will fit....do a search on here for :hybrid swaps/builds" which is generally a EJ25 block with the EJ20 heads... TONS of info on here and NASIOC about this...
