Talking I want to swap to WRX drive train, Anyone want extra $

Looking for anyone capable out there. I would buy the engine somewhere and have you do the pulling of the old and install the new. Would consider 2.5L DOHC and some $ for work. Or just the cash.

I have a 97 Leg GT and want more power. If I was able to find a JDM Sti engine I would also consider that. I could do alot of work too as I am a student and have some time off on some days but this is also my daily driver and I want to move kinda quickly. I can turn a wrench too. Just have never done it and dont know that much about the wiring.

ANyone!!!!

The best kind of mechanic to have, not one who keeps you in the dark on what is going on to you own car!!

Ok. So maybe I was underestimating the cost of a engine swap.

Dont have 4k right now. Still want more umph!

Saw this on ebay last night SUBARU RS TURBOCHARGER KIT Item number: 7951833598.

Still would offer up some $ if the thing would fit on my car without blowing it up.

I still want to do the WRX or STI swap when I get some real $ flowing into my account when I get a real job after I graduate but in the mean time I want more HP and something like this would be great if it would work and not kill my engine.

I have the Phase 1 EJ25 DOHC. Just did a head gasket replacement and practically all new seals all the way around the engine.

MUST HAVE MORE HP!!!!
