Default Some performance questions

i have actually thought of swapping my spec c 2.0 jdm engine out for a outback 3.6 jdm engine.

of course the 3.6 engine will be rebuilt but does anybody foresee any future in it? i suppose with a bigger engine with a bigger turbo, more power and torque would be produced but generally thats what i'm thinking of right now.

i welcome any inputs from any veteran who may have good suggestions for me.

Anyway, more on my ride,

2003/4 WRX STi V-Limited Spec C. *yeah if you are thinking, its that model that only have 555 produced*

I'm a noobie by all accounts but if it were ME who owned a model STI that only had "555 produced" i'd keep the motor how it is along with just about everything else. Keep the integrity and rarity of the car by leaving it as is from the factory, otherwise youre just another modded subaru along with about 555,555 others.

IMHO it is a collectible. So I would keep it stock too.

Or sell it to another enthusiast and purchase a run of the mill WRX or STi to modify.

I was thinking about keeping the current engine and try to play with another engine lying around.

I had someone offer me a good price for a 3.6 outback engine. So i was kinda tempted to play with it to see how it goes.
