What's up fellow Minny-sotans! Just had a friend drop off a 2003 Impreza Outback at my house. He gave it to me for $500, but the motor is kaput. Makes an unholy rattle and knock. It has around 140k miles on it. The other forums I'm on tell me to just buy a used motor - thoughts on this vs rebuilding it? I've been involved in mechanics for the past 12 years, but haven't ever swapped or rebuilt a motor. My gut reaction is to get all crazy and see how much HP is possible from an EJ25 (that's the correct engine, right?), but I think I should just see if I can get it running again and go from there. Any and all advice is appreciated. Chevy trucks are way more my speed, but I've always been a Subaru fan, and who doesn't need another project car ?
