A certain amount is from normal wear.

How much and what type of metal are you looking at?

Slight rattle in engine and decided should do a quick service (was done 3000km ago). There was so much metal that you could see it in the oil as it was draining. Abnormal amount of oil consumption as well.

So mech is now commissioned to source a new bottom end to add to my list of mods lol

Was sort of expecting to replace the engine at some point, with 264000km on the original.

Faaark, ok you might be on to something there.

Make sure the short block price is competitive with this:- https://www.carmodsaustralia.com.au/sti ... ej257.html

If my engine goes that way, I'm already weighing up the options, including the factory STI bottom end or going for something with forged pistons.

Yeah bit of a shame, but better to know before it went on the dyno.

That's the exact short block I am getting :)
Was tempted to ask for some forgies, but my account balance is suggesting otherwise now....

I would try RSS. I got mine for about 700 less IIRC.

Mmmm bumma,

So rebuilding the bottom end with a set of forged pistons and rods? I would look at cleaning the heads up as well.

I've seen it as a blessing in disguise lol
We've got the brand new EJ257 STi bottom end (link Yowie posted above is it) with standard internals (that came with the block) but have upgraded the head bolts.
Not planning to push the limits of the internals as it will always be a daily.
Pretty sure mech said that heads would be cleaned up.
