Do you know of a Subaru with a blown motor? I am looking for an 02-07 Impreza chassis to swap my 02 WRX drivetrain into.

Preference would go in this order:

  • 9-2X Saab
  • WRX Wagon
  • WRX Sedan
  • RS Wagon
  • RS Sedan
  • 03-05 Forester
  • Others?

Looking for as rust free as possible, but hey not looking for perfect. Subaru's in Canada, they all have some rust.

I am looking for something affordable. Not in a rush - work planned for next spring/summer but I thought I would start looking now.

I would prefer something in Canada or close to the border to reduce the cost of getting it.

Couldn't be further from Canada, but I saw this(just in case you know some snowbirds that can bring it back for you):

What about Saabaru? This one is not Canadian, but the price is right. These pop up occasionally and don't have quite as many buzzards as the WRX wrecks.

Good point - I have been looking at them on-line but forgot to include them in my post. Quite a few of them were pretty loaded up (leather etc.). Edited ad

Back up - still looking. I had one that I was thinking about but not sure I can swing it.

In reply to ohioboy:

$2500 for that? Seriously?

Glad I am not the only one that has trouble understanding this.

The other downside is that it has an STi VIN and I am not sure if the insurance company would place an additional premium on it over the regular WRX or not.

Bump back up. Still looking for options. I have a line on some local cars but still casting the net.

Sweet! What did it end up costing you, if you don't mind?

$900 CAD

2007, 244K kms, bad rod knock.

I put 2 1/2 L of oil in it and it just touched the bottom of the stick.
