Default 2004 STi engine swap --- need suggestions

Long story short, bought a 2004 STi w/ 75k miles, blew a headgasket only 300miles after I owned it. The engine was overheating and ended up warping the block to the point where a piece of paper could fit underneath the straight edge.

So I am dropping in a new shortblock fresh from Subaru w/ 1year warranty, all new engine gaskets, valve job, copperspray gaskets, ARP head studs, decking heads.

The only other surprises I found are that I have what looks like Perrin front shifter brushings, and the infamous crack in the VF39 turbo's exhaust manifold.

I already have a new set of Kartboy front and rear shifter brushings, is it worth swaping out the old Perrin and putting in the new Kartboys? I am going to put in the rear one regardless. :thumb:
