Which engine?


Recommended Posts

Good evening all. I'm new to the site and this is my first post. I'm just looking for some advice...


April last year I bought a 2008 impreza wrx sti hatchback. It lasted a week before the 4th Ringland decided it'd s**t itself out. The car dealer gave me a full refund instead of rebuilding the engine. 


Now my question is a 2 parter (with the above in mind)(I'm looking at anything 2009 onwards in the hatchback) 

What engine is better the 2.0 JDM or the 2.5 UK spec engine. I would be doing some light engine mods nothing major.  


If I'm spending the 20k on a JDM engine would I be better off stumping up a couple more grand and getting the CS400, and do minimal tuning? 


I have a van for work so it won't be used everyday as a runner, just a weekend car mainly. 


Any help would be much appreciated.
