(Northern Indiana)Newbie Ringland Failure Please Help

Been having hesitation around 2.5-3k RPM. Leakdown test showed 85psi in cylinder #3.

I have an 08 STI with only 34k miles. With tasteful mods

What are my options on fixing this issue. I received a quote from a local "performance" shop and they will only repair if I purchase their OEM shortblock (4999.99) + Labor (2350) and Tune (500) ~ $8000 for an oem engine.....

I realistically have a 5000 budget.

Is it savable or am I going to have to sell/trade-in

Best of luck with the issue. :)

I've moved this thread to the appropriate forum, and deleted the duplicate.

5k is gonna be tight. Personally I would fix it. Find the cause of the initial failure and address it.

Where are you located?
