Question want to do some research for my project

hello folks

i have a friend that will be selling me his stock 2002 WRX block for $400...i'm not sure what it will come with....but he said he'll throw in the turbo....the thing is, that i want to try to build a WRX block....things like forged pistons, new rods, crank, etc.....im not sure what i should do with the heads yet....i plan to run everything with an autronic....i have a 2001 RS....so its going to be an engine swap thing....is this worth it?? are there any big benefits to building a 2.0?? i don't want serious race power but just something that i can run maybe 17lbs daily?? the thing about this is that i want to buy the motor so i don't have to pay shipping for the block to hawaii....any inputs on what i'm planning to have to get?? thanx

honestly, alot of people have done wrx swaps. I would think its the best way to go if you opt not to build up the block. In the end...
If you wire in a wrx ecu, and basically make your car a old school wrx. It will be the more reliable power adder you could do since it is factory turbo.

About the forged internals: I honestly think that would be overkill unless you want 400+hp on race gas. i've seen a wrx run low 12s (i'm talking almost 11s) on 100oct, boltons and a ecu reflash.

i'm not saying don't go forged, because if you do build a 2.0l it might be able to handle a few mistakes (ie bad gas or bad tuneing) better then a cast motor.

non the less, you have alot of options ahead of you. I suggest you read read read about the wrx motor and make sure thats the way you wanna go.

thanks

the reason i want to build the motor is because i see it as an opportunity since the block is partially disassembled....and knowing that i can boost it higher in a safer sense on those track days ....how much does the parts cost to build the bottem end??
