Default a little help with finding out where i can get a short block

hey i'm thinking of building up the engine in my old subaru. its a 1996 impreza 2.2L. unfortunately though the block is split. i was thinking about getting a v7 sti motor for it however i've reconsidered because i'd rather not have to redo the entire wire harness. instead i plan on purchasing a 2.2l short block and then building that up, installing turbo/ic/engine managment/forged internals/etc. anyone know a good place with good prices to get either a used or new 2.2 short block. i don't want a 2.0 with the displacement increased to 2.2 because then i still run into the harness problem. any help would be greatly appriciated.
thanks
kyle

Try getting in contact with crawford performance. I believe they are a vendor on this forum.

Good stuff.

smyth,
For starters, you will get a lot more information in the proper forum. Aftermarket Forced Induction is where this sort of project belongs. Aside from that, I think you need to spend some time doing more reading. Where did you get the idea that you can use a 2.2l bottom end without wiring, but that a 2.0l bottom end requires it? That just makes no sense. Shortblocks have nothing to do with engine management!!!

Regardless of what bottom end you use, you will need a bare minimum of an AFC, RRFPR and a boost controller to make your project at all driveable. An E-manage or a Perfect Power would be a far better solution, but guess what? That requires wiring. Nothing at all like the wiring of a factory style engine swap, but you are still in there cutting up your harness. Like I suggested above, head over to AFI and do some reading. There have been 4-5 threads in the last month real similar to your ideas, so don't start a new one. And in case you are getting defensive, I am not trying to be harsh. I am just offering the path of least resistance with the quickest learning of what this requires. And if you are looking for any parts, PM me. I just pulled apart a turbo'd Impreza L cuz the motor popped...

soory i worded my situation improperly actually. what i want to do it get a 2.2l block to just drop in it now so i can drive it, then tear out my 2.2 and see if its fixable, then build that. when the built engine goes in i'd do the wiring. right now i just want a stocker that runs. i know excactly what you're saying and you're 100% right, it was my fault for a misleading description.
thanks
kyle

no being definsive here, i appriciate the help.
