if you were a rod, lets say, and you were in my engine, hypothetically...

NOT a good day for me... weighing my options.

Re: Someone talk me out of this. (too late, My VF39 swap thread)

so while the  92x is down Ill be driving this gem...  159,000 miles, Automatic  mad rusted everything...
http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/ab107/reschluter/IMG_20160924_160103159_HDR_zpsetyvurnd.jpg

picked it up for $1500!! its a slow rusty pile but it runs good. I miss horsepower  sad  so much.

As for the Saabaru im probably going to build a STI 2.5 shortblock with some forged internals and slap my 2 litre heads on it. Saving up for it... slowly.

I feel your pain, I've also been driving a gutless 2.5i outback. I miss boost so much, very sorry to hear your motor let go. Pick yourself a good ver 7-9 ej207 and forget about built motors. JDM STi motor stoutness is legit.
