worst idea evar!!

I wouldnt even do it if it was free...

Cant afford better than what? you obviously have some money, or at least have an rs engine? your gonna need alot more than an engine anyway. What is the actual reason your even thinking of doing something like that?

Is this gonna be a project car or a DD? Id just scoop that up and slowly build it up as a stock STi, then sell it for a decent chunk....

I was thinking of getting a crashed car to swap the parts needed and a crashed rs is cheaper than a crashed sti.

i know might sound sacrilegious to downgrade a car but repainting a rs to rally blue is expensive.

but reasoning why aside, 1 to 2 k is the answer so far the guy is asking 8k if i propose 1.5k should be reasonable im not low balling right?

i would hold out for an RS shell. You have the money for it, and the proper engine.

paying STi insurance for something that isn't an STi is stupid.

You also need to swap a lot more than just the engine.

If you are concerned about getting a car that is WRB and aren't looking at the bigger picture, you need to get your priorities straight.

Just my 2 cents
