well i have found a sti motor that only has 25k miles on it and i have a lot of extra parts laying around it's lookng like about 600 dollars for that and i can order parts at wholesale prices and i have a few oil coolers laying around. so the real expensive thing is going to be new wiring and the transaxle and the radiatior.

expect to spend big on a trans. Alternatively, get one of Ttreibler's ring and pinions. $1200 buck and a 5 speed factory trans that will handle the STi motor. Seems like a no brainer to me. VWs trans, expect to spend 3K upwards without an LSD.

Engine Block


I'm starting a similar project on my 72. Where did you buy the block from? Also why'd you go with an EJ25 vs an EJ20?
