Default 2004 WRX Rebuild On a Budget

Hey Guys,

Looking for some advice on a rebuild since my motor isn't in the best of health and would like to get this done before any more damage is done. I contacted a few shops and I was quoted by one saying the cheapest route would be dropping in an STi short block which would be 2600 for the block and an extra 2800 in labour. Is this reasonable? All I really want to achieve is a reliable motor that can take me on some long road trips without having to worry about topping my oil up constantly. I would like to steer away from stock pistons since they are known to be of a lower quality. My budget would be $4000. Any advice will help!

Thanks!

check out westernsubaruclub.com, they could probably recommend some local shops in alberta (VEX performance is usually the place to go). Also, stay away from hybrid motors is you're looking for reliability.
