    HELP! Nissan Owner in Subaru World

    Well i have owned several Nissans over the last few years. I currently have a S13 with a RB25 . Well a few days ago my brother and I bought an '02 WRX.

    The problem is the car has NO motor and NO Tranny. The Engine harness is also not fully complete.

    I was hoping you guys could give me suggestions in what route to take to get the car running. I have about 4 grand to spend on the WRX, wondering the best way to spend the money and get a good Motor & Tranny combo and get the car running. Please point me in the right direction and where to get the Motor/Tranny from, as well as the prices i should be paying.

    All help is appreciated, Thank you.

    B T W I am located in Orlando, FL.

    Unless you can find someone that has a ej205 and tranny they just swapped out, I think think of anything within your budget to get that thing running. It sounds like you might be better off saving and trying to get a ej207 block/tranny/harness and trying to swap that.....but you may have to save your pennies for a little bit longer.

    you can usually pick up a motor/tranny on ebay from a salvage yard for about $3000 they'll usually come with a harness and ECU, but you're buying a motor pulled from a wreck...it may need other work...if course if by "no motor" you mean, no turbo, no exhaust, no radiator, no oil/water pumps, then you're looking at a bit more.

    Did you do the RB25 swap or buy it that way? I know a guy up here in ND who just got his done and he's had/having quite a few problems.

    I did the RB swap. Was not too many problems, the first time i used an OEM RB SII wire harness the second time around i used a LT-12 microtech.
