    Any Opinions...

    I have spoken with two shops in Orlando, FL. One is Big Valley Performance and the other is Central Florida Turbo. Both shops have a Subaru specialist and each advised a different approach to the repair/replacement of the motor in my 2002 WRX. So, have any of you had any experience with either of these shops?

    Do you want opinions about the shops or opinions on what you should do about your motor issue?

    If I remember from your previous post you were wondering whether or not to do a ej20 or an ej257 build after your original ej20 went. Now one shop contradicts the other as to do the build. I would go with the shop with an ej257 build if thats the case but as for shops to the build I have no clue.

    based on my previous post, i have decided to go with the "hybrid", as someone described it. I was just curious about the two shops. i just want someone reputable under the hood...especially if there happens to be any unforeseen gremlins that i have to go back for.
