    It would be cheaper to trade in your new RS and start out with a WRX. A full engine swap with all the other boltons will run you right into new STi territory.

    i got prices in the 1800$ range

    I've gotten some prices in the 1800-2800 $ range for the engine, and the labour i can do for free (yes for cousins) so i really dont think trading in and going for a new WRX is the way to go, i could be wrong, plus it's a wagon too, (ultimate sleeper wagon is what i'm going for) i've done a few things to the body already really not looking to sell the whole car... but more insight would be much appreciated

    Nice! Welcome to the club and I am eager to read about and see the updates if you pull it off! How difficult will the wiring be?

    thanks for the warm welcome!

    well from what i've herd, if i swap with a pretty recent wrx engine (prolly a 02-03) it should really just snap back in, i got a price back from autotrader on a wrecked wrx (the engine was saved thank god) on a 03 with 68 000 clicks, there asking 2400 american, wich is i think incredible, hard to believe almost, so i'm going to make that buy and my cousin (he's a ford guy) says he knows a guy that say's (all hear say i know) he can pop it in no problem, i just need to get the ECU asap

    hey guys another quick newbie question. I can get some WRX heads for a really good price. But he doesn't have the short block to go with it, Can i use the short block i already have and just switch the heads? and is it the heads that have all the things that make a wrx go? Like the turbo ect... i need help, got i wish i wasint a newb And if the heads were all i needed i know i'd need to get the ECU but what else would i need?
