    If you're dilligent about it you can have the engine out in a day, cleaned and rebuilt in same (providing there aren't any signs of severe damage or need for machining) .. and back in the car in about a day as well. Figure if you dont have other distractions and can devote solid time to it.. likely 3 days, 4 tops. .. also providing you have all the tools you'll need at your disposal (air tools likely helping quite a bit with speed) .. speaking of.. I didn't ask about that before, what do your tool resources look like?

    Mind you, this is taking time and being careful. A seasoned pro will have an engine out, torn down, rebuilt and back in the car well inside of a weekend including breaks for meals and naps. lol

    +1000 on the need for beer breaks.

    I have a ten day vacation coming up. I'm sort of pissed I will be using it for that, but I guess things kind of tend to show up when we need them. And I will need the time right now.

    Wow, I think I might actually be close to committing to doing this...

    Best of luck with your rebuild. Like many others said, it will make you appreciate the car so much more. (I know this from experience)

    Buying a new shortblock is $1,840. I can get a complete OEM gasket kit, oil pump, set of piston rings, and set of rod bearings for $573. Large difference in price here...

    Should I need machining, I found a place that will bore and hone for $15 per cylinder. Now to work out the loaner car thing for sure. If I can, I'm committing to the rebuild!

    Please send luck/prayers/car god blessings my way, I'll need them.

    So I'm in the process of this job from hell. I'm on step 17. The manual seems to have mysterious directions sometimes, and I feel whoever drew these diagrams took a lot of artistic liberties. Need moral support. I'm dreaming about this.. last night, I dreamed I finished it but after I had lost my mind and had hair like the old guy in back to the future. and about 30 check engine codes. a few nights ago i dreamed the engine exploded.

    It's part of the process, you'll get there! If it makes you feel any better my WRX is in pieces in my garage, my Brat's clutch went out this weekend, and my RS is still in the same condition it was when I bought it. Also I can't find the right caliper adapter for my 68 Ford.

    Check Youtube for an video's on pulling/removing a WRX engine. Same with engine dis-assembly. You would be surprised sometimes. Also NASIOC has a few write-ups I believe. Swivel sockets/extensions will make thinks easier. Generally with any rebuild/diss-ably I will put bolts/nuts in baggies and label them (IE:downpipe bolts,crankcase bolts,intake manifold bolts). Makes things much easier when putting back together.

    Thumbs up "you can do it!" [/voice of Rob Schneider from Water Boy]

    Well it seems like you've already proven to be quite determined so I have faith in your ability to get it done.
