There is a really nicely built engine or 3 in the 'classifieds'. Sorry to hear the bad news though. Did it at least go out in style?

Because he is cheap and probably one of the army of 20 something entitled retards that have all but completely ruined the Subaru scene. (not all 20somethings are that way, but the most of the new blood in the subie scene, comes from these guys)Its that attitude of "psh Im not a sucker that is gonna pay hundreds to tune when a $50 piece cobbled together with radioshack parts, then sold by an unliscenced not actually real business on EBAY, will do the EXACT same thing." (That is a an almost direct, actual quote from one of these jackasses, I have it saved in a word doc, I only wish I had the guy's screen name. The only thing I changed was adding the cobbled together with radioshack parts (because that is exactly what they are) and the sold buy a not actual business part) Guys like this are one of the reasons I decided to sell the Forester and get the hell out of the Subaru scene. Kiddies that can't afford their car, so they buy GARBAGE because it works on their buddy's piece of isht integra. (not all integras are POS's, but these guys buddies integras ALWAYS are) Mommy and daddy will pay for the car (or pay ALL of their other bills, so they can be a big man and pay for their car "themselves") but wont cover mods. So their broke ass that can actually only afford a $3500 used car, has to resort to garbage can mods. Then they blame the companies that spend hundreds of thousands on R&D, and built well tested, quality products, for selling those products for what is a surprisingly meager profit. But these idiots think they are getting bent over.


Sorry if that came out harsh, but its the harsh reality. Don't want lumped in with those people? Don't be one of those people.
