I think your best bet would be to buy a short block and get that fitted, VII's only fetch 11K in good nick, the fact your requires an engine/build would put most off.

Not trying to flame you or what ever the term might be, just offer some advise to a nasty situation.

STI 5 IS NOTHING SPECIAL I HAD A 6 LAST WEEK AND AT SAME TIME 4 EVOS.. we didnt say you were desperate just having a laugh between members, 8.5k is a good offer as you can buy a minter on 02 now for 10k and an engine will cost 1500-2000 :D :D
