well my 04 wrx thought it would be cool to blow a motor last night....

my warranty on the car is stupid, wants me to pay half of parts and labor, im a nissan tech at a dealer so i know what goes down and how dumb it is.

Needless to say im looking into other options I dont want to go through with the warranty, im going to be forking out a ton of cash that way. Im just going to do all the work myself, i haven't pulled the motor yet and taken it apart, im not sure if it will be rebuildable or not I will have to see lol so far atleast there are no rods sticking out.

But the way it sounded when it went made me think that it might not be salvagable, so if a rebuild is out of the question also I have a question for you guys. Older EJ20 motors like these.

are these longblocks the same as the one i have in my car? (if i take off my 04 manifolds and other sensors and such)Im asking if i can throw one of these in place and just sell the accessories that i dont need?

And if that wont work does anyone have any good suggestions for me?

i just got the car from a dealer, i traded my rsx for it.

74k miles on the car, it was stock, i know it was beat on before i got it though, missing heat sheilds and what not caused me to believe that they had other exhuast on it at one point in time.

i honestly beat the car up pretty good over the weekend, i wasnt very easy on it we had some fun out in a field haha. But still that shouldnt have been enough to blow the motor. In my drift car i ran a stock longlock sr20 all last season beat the **** out of it reved it to hell and im gonna use the same motor for next season with just a built head. Ive always heard EJ20s were good motors i think i just got some bad luck here.

Any info on these swaps???

or what i should go about doing here?
