2000 2.5RS

Default 00' 2.5RS with High miles

My RS has over 100k just had valve job and it runs good. Would buying a used turbo kit and putting in on be a bad idea? I had planned on a V5 swap but i dont have the knowledge to do any of it my self but it terms of re-sale value should i upgrade the high mileage motor, do a swap, or just sell it?

Also any idea of aprox. market value of 00 2.5RS Coupe Good Condition, New Clutch, Valve Job, Greddy CBE, and CAI....?

yout best bet as far as reliability is a swap, i woild never boost a short block that has over 50k on it expecially one with 10:1 CR. hold the money you have for the kit, and save it for a rainy day(rainy day being when the motor gives up and its time to do a major fix)

2013 Impreza STi


WRX engines are a little lower in price since the STi engines are out, if you do go w a swap, but can't do it yourself labor would be around $2500-3000ish. I'm getting a usdm wrx engine and RA gearsets in monday, my rs engine has 94k miles and tranny is going..so it's time.
