down here in the SW?

This is the 2nd time my throwout bearing is going bad on my forester, and I'm feeling it might be a model/year issue...

So I'm thinking about swapping everything, or just selling it. I don't put up with stupid **** like that on cars.

2nd time in 3 months.
and I've always wanted to go turbo anyway. Just need a good excuse.

Just curious what's out there and if it's even feasible. Otherwise, I'll try my luck with a sleeve over kit

wrx swap, you're probably looking at $3000 for a wrecked one with a running engine/tranny, STI, probably $5-8k

Clutch kit from NAPA. Cant remember what brand.

This is the reason why I did it the first time. (throw out bearing failed in Ramona California, drove all the way back home)
