Default Subaru Motor Prices

So why the heck do the STi motors cost so D*$@ much?? I dont understand why a "Stock" STi motor would be $9000 w/o turbo and IC or ECU. Hell, I remember the days of owning a Honda and worrying about spending $5000 for a complete!!! motor swap for just about any motor ya wanted. Even a 427 only costs $4500. So why the hike in prices? Are we the only ones eatin it on this?

Because it is the usual supply and demand issue. The USDM STi engines are hard to come by and those who want one really bad have the cash to lay out for one.

Are you talking about www.rallispec.com prices for jdm sti motors ej207?? They cost that much because they are new blocks and not take-offs...

$3750 for thier ej207 short block is a great deal....
$1425 for usdm sti ej257 short blocks is also good price...

If you want used parts you can try...

Not the mention the smallest hit of 300hp that the STi engine can dish out without any problems compared to most Honda engines which will never see that kind of power surging through their blocks.
