its doable goal at less than 3k..

reliable comes down to who drives the car and how.
but some of the factory tunes were/are to lean.

they are still cracking ringland..hpyeruratic cast pistons on stock boost.
spun rod bearings due to oil break down.

I never liked buying someone's problem. well except the ones where i know
the previous owner.

Ben, I never anticipated buying a problem vehicle( should have bought that white one from you!!) But anyways, Ill probably have some work for you when I get back.

I'm not twisting ****... A bolt on is just that: a mod that bolts on to the car with little other requirement. Where I come from a bolt on includes any intake mod. You need to use the correct terminology.

yea, my advice is just buy the sti. we'll workon it as we feel the need. who got busted doing 140+ it wasnt the guy in the 350 was it? anyways.

or if you can, buy a used sti with a **** block. dump 4000 on a fresh built block by ams, or one of the others and call it a day. if my rings go again it will be a built block under the hood.

You can't be looking for that much reliability with these conditions. It's basically luck of the draw though too when it comes to modding. Some people break stuff with way less than the next guy.

I think it has been said before, but staying stock and maintaining your car is the best path for reliability.

If you must mod, then you should consider a built block is in your future.

No it wasnt the guy with the 350z

But If I cant find a good stock STi, I may look for one with a low mileage built block.
