OK, just for the record... I didn't ask to start a debate over which is better - JDM or USDM. I simply want opinions from people that have put either a V8 STi, or WRX engine in a GC car. I need to decide which route to go. What would YOU do???
note: I more than likely will buy a USDM motor.
I'm looking for reliable 'daily driver' power, without any tuning issues, and I don't want to seriously upgrade the drivetrain (maybe a new gearset in the tranny, but that's about it).
