Very clean. Nice balance between looks and performance.

Did you rebuild the engine at all or did you just drop it straight in from the donor? Also, how many miles on newer motor?

Thanks!
I ended up not having time to rebuild it needed to get it on the road quick but I did pull the oil pan to check it for any metal or coolent it. I was very worryed it would die on me and still am but I changed the oil 4 times in the 2 months after the swap checking it for shavings. Maybe I'm just paranoid but its paid off so far its been swapped for since November and has seen about 7k so far and still doing good.
Also its not been ran off the 20k ecu its been ran off the rs ecu and I've made sure its always been nice and rich on the tune.
oh yea the donor had 40000 miles on it

Looks like i will start playing with the sub injector map on my emanage this weekend I finaly rounded up the parts out of my leftovers. Im going to be using it to control the STI boost solenoid so i can have the boost a little more managed since its running off the RS ecu.
