I recently had an broken block and a rod failure.I opened the engine and saw the third cylinder somehow rusty inside.
I now must to change the engine.
The car is a Forester 2003 XT 2.0 5MT with open deck block.
I found on ebay a closed deck engine.
They say fit most impreza and forester turbos 1992 to 2004.
My question is if I can reuse my cylinder heads (from the Forester)
with this closed deck block.
You are welcome to reply.
