wow, thats $400 more then what I paid for my new EJ257 shortie.
Heads aren't too cheap.. Im hoping you were looking for the LEFT and the RIGHT cylinder heads since Subaru's have 2 cylinder heads. Also they are a 4 cam motor..Whoah where would I get that $1400 shortblock from? The impreza is a 97 and it had an EJ20 swap but the engine blew so the guy just pulled the engine. I imagine I could just drop an EJ257 in? (Assuming I buy a head as well.) The heads are relatively cheap from my searching. Ahh I would need a turbo too huh...
Thanks a lot for all of your help. So if I were to buy a shortblock from the dealership what else would I need to purchase to be able to have a driveable car?BTW you can go down to your local Subaru dealer and purchase the EJ257 shortblock for about 1800. You can should be able to easily talk them into taking 20-25% off that too. Gasket Sets through Subaru aren't too bad priced either.
This is what i did when i had my shortie swap.Thanks a lot for all of your help. So if I were to buy a shortblock from the dealership what else would I need to purchase to be able to have a driveable car?
How much did all of that end up costing you?This is what i did when i had my shortie swap.
STI short block
ARP Head studs
PE Timing belt
NGK Iridium plugs
Gaskets overhaul kit
Most of it was suggested by my tuner that did the swap.
You will need engine management and a custom tune if you go with your 2.0 heads.
Ouch ha. I found a 0 miles wrx shortblock I think I'm going to buy since it's so much cheaper and I know exactly what I'm getting, plus my funds are kind of limited.about $5000 including my, clutch disk, uppipe, downpipe and exhaust and instillation. Actually i just paid instillation for the shortblock and they installed the uppipe and TBE for free.
Gotta pay to play! :thumbup:
Not to sure about the td05 16g. I've seen people running 20+psi in their 2.0L. but i would research it. when you do upgrade your turbo your gonna need supporting mods too, like upgraded injectors, full pump, top mount intercooler, etc.Ouch ha. I found a 0 miles wrx shortblock I think I'm going to buy since it's so much cheaper and I know exactly what I'm getting, plus my funds are kind of limited.
One last question haha, how much many lbs of boost from a standard size TD05 16g is a stock wrx shortblock able to handle? I have a friend who bought an 18g and said he would give me his 16 for 200 bucks.
