Then the engine builder you, your friends, and "other people" used are not very good at their job. My 2002 WRX built motor with a Weisco eagle set up has 80K on it and still runs strong. My 1996 DSM GSX running 30lbs of boost and 605 WHEEL hp with 66K on it still runs strong. It has Pauter Rods, JE pistons that slap like a diesel until warm sti and have since day one. I can go on and on with many of high mileage built motors that see track abuse that last longer than factory Subaru motors, all built CORRECTLY and last for a lot longer than 30K. Your price is more than fair and the motor will last for a long time if it was built correctly. If my 2000 2.5RS with a WRX swap sells soon and this is still for sale I may pick it up, if not GLWS.

Talk to your engine builder about clearances and stock clearance precision from the factory. 30k on this setup isnt necessarly alot but its also not nearly as reliable as a 75k stock motor. Search the for sale threads right now, theres reputable built motors blowing up at 300whp at 9,xxx, 10,xxx and less sometimes. All depends on the exact motor and how it was assembeled. I also have a buddy who blew up a stock 08 sti motor at 10,000's bone stock so can be to reliable ever.
