Need help with 05 legacy gt
 
Hello i current own a 2005 lgt with 99k. i bought the car with a turbo leaking a little oil, so i replace the turbo and someothere parts and have a stage 3 now with a cyro-tuen.
I recently herd a ticking in the motor and had to inspect and when i pulled the oil pan i found a turbo bearing broke in half and alot of metal glitter. i then also noticed that one of the rods had play in it.

So i am in the process of removing the engine to decide if i will rebuild it or do ??

There is a local 03 2.5rs sohc motor with ecu i can purchase for a good price. Will that drop in if i have the ECU with the motor?
If not can i just replace the heads and intake with my stuff and be good to go?

IMO that will not work.

You can buy a new OEM EJ257 for $1900.

Here's my thread.

I'm guessing no. Your going to want a EJ255 or EJ257. I gather you have the skills to rebuild one of these.
