Default Need help.. I was told I could find help here...

Hey guys I drive a 2003 WRX and I recently just spun a rod bearing. I did some research on here about the sti short block swap and I checked out Crawfordperformance.com because I heard I needed certain pistons to run the short block with my wrx heads... Do they sell a short block with pistons that are for wrx heads? Which one is it... I have about 2500-3000 to spend, can I do the swap with these funds? Thanks guys...

Its like a STI.....
but it doesn't break


HEllo welcome to the forum. Right above your thread you will find a Search icon. Click on that icon. Then type in STI shortblock. You will find all the info about the swap and what items you do infact need and items you dont need.

You can find a lot in the built motor discussion forum. Lots of people are running STI short-blocks with WRX heads. I believe the STI's headgasket will work with the WRX heads better than the wrx gasket because it will lower the compression ratio. You should be able to get a shortblock and gasket kit and have some money left over with your budget.
