Default NJ: 2004 Java Black WRX $8,000 w/ Rod Kock

I have a 2004 Java Black WRX, running cobb stage 2. However, the engine does have a rod knock. I got this knock about a week ago and stopped running the car immediately. Turns out I spun a road bearing, so the engine will need to be swapped or rebuilt.

On the bright side, I just installed a new Invidia n1 cat-back exhaust w/ titanium tip (has 2,000 miles on it at most), Invidia n1 catted downpipe, and cobb uppipe (both downpipe and uppipe have 1,000 miles on them).
I bought the car with 85,000 miles on it
It now has 90,300 miles on it

Clean CarFax and have all paperwork if needed

The car does still run fine besides the knock, for now, but I did not want to cause any other further damage. Everything else is about the car is perfectly fine and the body is still in very good condition. Thought it might be a good project car for someone or if anyone has an extra ej205 usdm handy .
I am asking $8,000 obo and the car will come with new v3 cobb accessport.

PM for any questions/pics/or videos of the rod knock

Sry to burst your bubble but how is this worth $8k with a blown motor? your looking at $3-4k max.. Your better off finding another motor and swapping it in before you try and sell it..

Clean Body tho

I was just trying to get some offers. Figured someone might have a ej205 they have or could get there hands on, or if anyone wanted a project car to start rebuilding. Its has a turboback exhaust with 2k miles on it and comes with new cobb accessport and cobb uppipe with 2k miles on it, that should inflate the price.

More like 2k in mods, but nice try. If someone wants to buy a used low mileage ej205 it will run them 2k = no tear down.

More like 2k of mods, but good try. New rod bearing would cost 3k with labor and used low mileage ej205 would cost 2k. Get it off my hands at 7,000 then ur looking at 10,000 max to get it running like a champ with new turboback, uppipe, and accesport. Not to mention, new tires and kenwood ddx770 headunit.

Put the stock parts back on, unmarry the AP and sell separately. You generally don't get more money for mods when selling a wrx (or any car) unless it has a built engine or sti swap type stuff.

Good luck though.

Dude, don't settle for any lowballers. The people talking crap here are the same people who complain about free stuff. Clean body -- you should be able to get near your asking price if you can hang on.

But if you could scrape together the funds, find someone on here to fix your car on the cheap! You're probably afraid of shop rates, but there's lots of people here with lots of knowledge. . . .

I've been in your shoes.

Best post in this FS thread. Do it and you won't be out that much. I think it is a fair asking FWIW

Thank you. I had to deal w/ the same types of shmucks, so I wanted to give my two pennies. Some people were raised by wolves.

He'd be helping out a NASIOC'er in these 'rough times' and helping himself as well.

Not sure where you are getting your quotes for a rebuild but having a shop rebuild the motor will cost you far more than $3k. DSG used to charge $6-7k for a stock "rebuild" and all they did was buy new blocks from subaru. Fixing a rod bearing means the entire motor needs an overhaul. You cant just simply replace the bearing..

The majority of the time it is far cheaper just to buy a BNIB short block (~$2k) from subaru and swap over all your parts from your current engine.

A good used motor will cost around $2k like you said but then you still have to actually find one, pull the old one install the used one.

Anyway GLWS and I hope someone gives you what you want for it.

Just informing you or the potential buyer of what it will actually cost to fix the car.

In the end it may be best for you to fix it yourself and then re sell the car to maximize your profits. Selling it as is may net you more of a loss than you seem to want to take.

Its a shame someone closer cant help you rebuild this yourself. I've got a good EJ20 crank and rods if needed. Good luck man, sorry for your luck. If you could find a knowledgeable guy around you willing to help just for the hell of it, you could prob rebuild this motor for around $1800-$1900. Nice and refreshed, none of that wasting your time putting a running longblock in, just to wonder when its gonna give. Been in this situation also. Aint no fun.
