ej255 or if your baller go all out with the ej257 with full drivetrain.

i currently have full 06 wrx conversion minus the interior and suspension. I love it thanks to garage tuning for doing the swap. My car is pretty fast will probably keep up with sti's after a vf39, tbe,cai and a protune haha jk it will dominate the sti haha

cincyrs:

What are your goals for your car? What is your budget and/or timeframe? Would you be doing the work yourself or at a swap shop?

Did you have to swap over the immobilzer and convert the whole drive-by-wire system on an 06?

no budget? wtf.....

throw a number out there...cause no budget to me means millions of dollars....and if you have millions of dollars what are you doing fucking around with an RS? go buy yourself a koenigsegg and a couple Porsches...throw one my way while your at it...

come on kid....get real and tell us how much you have to spend....hell otherwise i say pick up a V8 sti engine/tranny for 10K and have fun.....or maybe even usdm sti and have at er...

or maybe build up and eg33 and boost the hell out of it...

or if u have 25,000$ buy this:
http://www.rallysportdirect.com/shop/cosworth-subaru-sti-265l-stroker-motor-p-3818.html
and then all the other stuff you need - turbo, ecu, manifolds, plumbing, fuel system blah blah blah

shit dude i can throw expensive supafly shit at you all night long if you want....but until you take the time to explain your budget, your mechanical abilities or resources available to you you're just waisting everyones time!

man you are pretty hard to understand. Punctuation will help a lot....

for 7000$ you can do a USDM sti engine if you do the labor yourself....that is your best bet

Are there any swap shops around Cincy? (Assuming you live there:cool:)

Also whats the emission situation there? If you have to pass some sort of smog test that involves OBD2 then a JDM motor will not pass, must be USDM. If not then I say go with a JDM version 5 or 6 STI motor, a bit cheaper then the newer models and with some bolt ons and a nice tune you'll be set.

Thats great that you don't have emissions, your options are pretty much wide open on what to run. The motor can come from anything from a Version 2 sti all the way up to version 9 or what ever they are up to now.:rolleyes:

I'm in the process of getting a version 6 front clip(2 month wait,:noes:) I'm going RHD!:banana:
