Hey guys, since my last post I came up with a diagnosis from a Subby specialist here in the local community that I hired to help me out with my problem. Annnnd it's a beginning of rod bearing.
I do trust the guy and I am now thinking of swapping another engine. I have access to a 2006 sti long block for 3000$ 68xxx kms. I read from another board member that he did the 2006 sti swap and it went well, anything special to remember for this swap ? Would this be my best bet to get car back on the road ? I would either keep for a part time rebuilt the old engine or sell it to whoever got skills to rebuild.
Also, I would like to have the car aligned at a shop about 5 km from where I am, would this cause more damages to the engine if I only go there no boost !?
Sorry for newbie questions but I want to get this car back on the road and need to start somewhere
Last thing, if my power goals are around 300-325whp, while at swapping engine, what accessible improvements may I add to get to my goal ? I only have a BNR 16g brand new turbo as of a "mod" for now.
Thanks for your help !
