Default Help choosing the right STi engine for my 00RS

I will be doing an STI swap in my 00 2.5 RS in the spring. I need some input from you guys on what I will be needing prior to the swap but most importantly WHICH STI ENGINE???????? Im looking for reliability and 300 HP. I see deals on ebay for around 4K on ver 3,4,5 motor tranny sets all the time but are they worthy or should I go with a later model????

no go with a 05+ plus they have better set ups well it really depends are you swapping the harnesses too?

there's alot to consider start by reading sti swaps for dummies by wrinkleboi that'll help there's alot differences between the 04 and the 05+...

if they are jdm i might go for it but research there is alot of info here just read

i only say this because i'm planning a STi swap on my WRX and all the info i got is from here

you've got to be more specific on what you want to, because if you're just buying the engine then maybe you want a later model because all the later harness are mostly plug and play and you also don't need to worry about the immobilizer but then again the newer models have the vf43 instead of the vf39, plus are you swapping your tranny too or just the engine cause then you should look at yama2000 or something like that, his post is on his conversion on his 2.5RS... so i would start with what do you really want and what do you plan on doing?

I giggled a bit.

Rally, its all on what you want to do with it. I know its said all the time, but it still stands true.

1) Reliable
2) Fast
3) Cheap

You can only choose 2.

Theres all kinds of suggestions and comparisons both on here and rs25. If that gives you any insight, awesome. If not, enjoy the hunt, cant wait to see it when its done
