    Well are you looking at getting a motor built? Built motors, depending on options, I've seen run from 5500 to 10k. I'm sure there are several more expensive ones out here such as the cosworth blocks that cost upwards of 15k. But if you just wanted to get a motor from a wrecked STi you'd be looking at about 3k. Or get your's rebuilt to stock specs for about 3k to 3500 I'm sure.

    The guy is selling it for $7,500... what do you think? The body is in great condition, the motor runs ok. And the interior is in alright condition, the tires are toyo summer performance tires with 75% tread left so... what do you think about that deal?

    Is it posted online somewhere? If so can you post a link? My initial though was that it seems really inexpensive, but after checking KBB, it sounds inline with "Fair" (as apposed to Good or Excellent) market value.

    A factory stock EJ257 block can be had for around $2000 (plus shipping).
    Subaru EJ257 2004-2006 STi 2.5 Liter Shortblock
    Figure installation to be at least another $1000.

    Where are you located? Have you checked to see if there are any Subaru Specialized shops in your area?
