Default Need your thoughts.

Car was stolen and the punks who took it spun a bearing on my motor plus key the complete car. Insurance won’t fix it due to complete damage being 75% of what my 02 wrx is worth per kkb. I’m thinking of buying it back and just doing a rebuild or drop in a new motor. I need to go the cheapest and fastest route due to my job not being stable right now. I need ideas on what I should do or get. Just want to hear some thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Cheap and fast is never the right answer. No matter how hard you try, it will always cost more and take more time than you planned.

Can't really take the pay out because I can't afford a new car. The max I want to spend on the motor is about 3000 to 4000 no more then that. I did some reading and was thinking about just replacing the block with an EJ257?
