Default Just another blown wrx

To make a long story short my 05 wrx spun a bearing the other day, I'm a broke college kid with school starting this week and no car to get me there! I've got a little over 3 grand saved up that was going to buy me a starter bike- but now will obviously be going towards getting the wrx back on its feet. I've been reading up a lot here on nasioc about my options and what may be the best bet for me. I came across a thread that said you could take a JDM wrx sti v6 ej207 motor and swap over a couple things(cam pulley, crank pulley, intake manifold, accessories) and essentially just use the stronger ej207 longblock in place of the ej205. Just wanted some opinions from people who have actually done this and if it's my best route to take.

If you are broke and looking to do this on a budget the best thing to do is replace the short block with a USDM WRX one. If you have the money to go JDM go with the V7 and up being that it is a plug and play solution other the AVCS. Another thing to keep in mind when you are going with older JDM stuff is that much of it has been around for 10-16 years and who knows how long it has been sitting on a rack at the breakers.
