Question sti swap or turbo kit?

i'm not sure which i should do and which would be easier, here are my choices...

ludespeed stage 3 turbo kit
spo motorsports turbo kit
or sti engine swap

i'm guessing most of you have done one of these 3 options, and i'm just trying to find out which would be the easiest to do and which would provide the most reliable power. Thanks everyone!

If you haven't done so already, spend a little while reading through the threads in the FAQ and Threads of Note- Read me first!

They should help a bit

If you want reliability, do the swap

heh, DC ITCA are
my rides


I ahve thought about this too. The Swap will be fairly expensive but GOOD turbo kits arn't cheap either.

I would say a motor, trans, ecu swap would be the most reliable. but what about emitions testing? I might be better to do a 2002+ wrx motor swap with ECU.

Get a swap... Lachute(spelling) In CAN, has motor swap stuff, whole STI driveline including 6spds... 135000 CND. Get that and a tec3... and you'll have a great car...

Thats the way Subaru made them.
