Default US STi engine swap question?

If the STi did come out here and someone wrapped it around a tree... How much approximately would a junkyard charge for the engine and ecu with about 10k miles on it(assuming 280hp and more than 5,000 were made)? I'm thinking I'll wait it out and try to get a US spec STi engine rather than going through the trouble of getting a JSpec Sti engine. I had no idea what forum this belonged in. Thanks.

If your willing to wait another two or three years, MAYBE. around $3000-$4000 would be my guess, If it even fits into the GC8 style Imprezas... There would have to be some modifications, it wouldn't be a drop in..

Ya, I don't mind waiting, might as well wait till the warranty is up. Why wouldn't it fit? All previous STi engines were drop ins with a new crossmember. It would still be a 2liter, possibly 2.2, but should bolt right up to the trans and everything right. Also, I have an auto, would that cause any problems if they only offer it in MT? I'm sure it would bolt up, but will the electronics of it still work out, new TCU maybe?

Well, the EJ20 in the STi isn't that different from the EJ20 in the new WRX, which in turn isn't that different from the EJ20's in the GC8 series (93-01MY) WRX's. It's in the tuning, sizing of the turbo's, injectors, etcetera. The physical dimensions are the same.

The 6 speed tranny, however, is a different story. It is externally much larger than the 5 speed in the current GDA and GC8 non-STi cars, and there's questions as to whether it will fit in the space under the GC8 car without sheetmetal modification. On a MY02 RS or WRX however, it's a bolt in, since the GDA chassis we get is identical to the GDA the rest of the world recieves.

So, in a MY02 and newer car, it's a bolt in operation. In a GC8 car, there is the potential for needing some cutting and welding to get the tranny to fit.

Well.. with the STI coming over here (UK) by the begining of next year, I am assuming that Subaru/STI have designed this engine to meet virtually all worldwide requirements (regarding the engine aspect anyway).

I believe the new stock STI engine will meet all UK noise and emission standards without any further mods... so maybe if you could source one from japan now, you will be ok ?

Ok, but will the STi engine bolt up to the 4EAT and how will the electronic aspect of it work out?
