    Short block or rebuild?

    I got a dreaded knock this morning when I left to head to work. 2003 WRX with 120K miles. I have not even had time to check it out at all yet, but am debating options. I am a competent mechanic, and don't mind rebuilding, but figure the crank will need to be checked at a minimum, and I can get a brand new short block for under $2K shipped.

    Just trying to take a look at my options right now and figure out the best route. The motor is stock except for up pipe, and I intend on keeping it that way, so I don't want anything nuts.

    Ideas? Thoughts?

    Are there any decent write ups on rebuilding the bottom end on a 2.0 block? I have not been able to find any so far.
