Hi Everyone. I told a good customer of ours that we'd post an advert for him. He isn't on this forum. He has a 2005 STI that has some engine damage. He doesn't want to fix the car and wants to get out of it.
It looks to us upon inspection that the car was way low on oil and that there's a seizure problem, probably rod/main bearing failure. The compression is also low. This motor was fresh in August after the original one kicked off. It's an Axis block with CP pistons.
The car has a lot of other mods done to it-
Snow Meth kit
Headers, UP pipe and turbo XS exhaust
Turbo XS intercooler, painted black
New clutch (ACT, installed here)
He also has a spare turbo at home, I think it's a GT30 variant.
He's looking for around 17k but is open to offers for sure. This would be a great deal for someone looking to get into an STI who is handy.
The car has a double racing stripe over the roof- not ideal but maybe not a deal breaker for someone who wants something different.

Enjoy the snow!
