I recently acquired an engine package with transmission from what I believe is a 90's Legacy RS Type RA. It has the air to water intercooler, gold valve covers, 4.11 transmission (which corresponds to this model).

I was hoping to receive some more information about it. What I have gathered so far is it is very limited production, has a closed deck 2.0 with forged pistons, upgraded rods, and balanced crankshaft and flywheel. The heads are supposedly ported on the intake and exhaust side and ran 16-17 psi from the factory.

I am missing the rear differential and ECU, but otherwise it is 100% complete. I have a LEGACY SS, but want to get the EJ22T in it, and all the 2.5RS cars I have I don't want to use this motor for. I was hoping to sell it, but am unable to find a realistic and fair price point for the package.

Is there anyone that can help with information, pricing, etc?

Thanks!

Very neat if it's real, but what color is the AWIC core.

Also, the RSRA had the same output as the usual RS, though it's ECU had a socket where a team could install a custom tune.

Price point? I hate to say it, but the BBS is a bunch of cheap bastards lol. Do you want to sit on the engine for the next 5 years, or do you want to sell it sooner.

Kinda figures though. We're driving cars that are approximately 25 years old and had to make all our own modifications off of pick and pulls or coffee cups lol.

The AWIC is black, which I think I saw that some/all were the same color as the valve covers? There is so little out there, it's hard to know. The trans code gives it a 92-93 RS-RA designation.

Honestly, I am a sooner rather later type of person. So provided the deal is fair, I'd rather move it quicker for a lower price than sit on it for X months/years for a slightly higher price.

I'd encourage you to post it to the Facebook groups also.

I posted to one or two asking for info. Do you have an idea of a fair price point I should start at given rarity and complete-ness. I can ship also, so that helps.

A guy had just the long block for $2500 obo. Not sure what he ended up selling it for, but it took 3 months.
