Factory shortblock should retail for ~$1800-1900 from your local subaru dealer. (1725 rimjobbbbber)

Your aftermarket engine rebuilders should be less than that but we didn't find anyone with any in-stock (~3 weeks turnaround), but my bro didn't end up needing a shortblock.

EDIT AGAIN: but if you fucked up your cam towers/caps or got bad stuff inside your VVT gizmo, you may need more than a shortblock.

1. Think of how much driving enjoyment you have received from your teal Miata.

2. Think of how much driving enjoyment you have received from your IS-F.

3. Note the level of modifications between the two.

4. Set up the Forester accordingly.

VVT solenoids aren't too expensive. I had to replace one on my GF's car. She still has both of the filters in the banjo bolts. In the spring I want to replace the one feeding her turbo and check shaft play on the stock turbo.

Cam caps on the other hand... no bueno.

If you just do a shortblock BE SURE to replace both of the banjo bolts that have filters in them.
