Hey guys,

Im hoping you can help me out. Im looking to swap a WRX motor into my 1999 2.5rs. Does anyone have a motor laying around they are looking to get rid of or know of a good place to look either locally or out of town.

Thanks for the help.

Jeff

We do heaps of swaps although we are a fair distance away. We can also provide all the go fast bits while the engine is out of the car to make it more reasonable for labor (good time to do Engine management, up-pipe, downpipes...maybe VF-34 and STi topmount as well??fuel pump). e-mail sales AT rocket rally DOT com if the distance is not too great.

Send a PM to Klug. He had a WRX motor around for awhile sitting in his garage. Was trying to sell it about 2-months ago, but not sure if he ever did.

I know of a low low milage 06 WRX that was totalled last week. If you have any connections that can buy wrecks at auction it would be a steal of a buy.

Heh I am in the same boat... An 06 would be sweet, but I think you'd be spending close to $10-12k for that kind of a swap. The swap goes in as soon as I sell my summer car.
