alright, i have a 2001 rs, and i want to swap my engine with the japnese 2.0 sti motor. I didn't even know there was a 2L sti motor, but someone told me about it the other day. he said you can run it at up to 50lbs boost, as opposed the 2.5L which can only run up to, i think, around 30. Mind you, this is what i was told by this guy. He mentioned there is a place in L.A. that sells it with the sti tranny for only $2800, used from japan of course. If anybody knows what place he might be talking about, please let me know. I'm still learning a lot about the whole engine swap thing, and i'm trying to figure out what the best parts are to throw in with it, and if I'm just opening up a huge can of worms. Oh, one more thing, what ecu would i use with that engine? I got a lot of questions, but thats it for now. Peace....ruster.
