That seems like a reasonable speed. Was that low or high?

I don't know if there's an easy way to get the joints apart other than prying it out. It looks to me like the top part is crimped on. I...

In the "I'm a moron" category I remembered that I have a spare V6 sitting in the garage, so I went to look at it. Each head had a different mark on the back, but I also found the engine number.

Thanks! I stay away from WRXs, >90% of the ones I see at auction are trashed. If I was buying one I would only buy it from the owner.

I don't mind. I paid $7500, plus about $500 to get it home. I think i got a screaming deal. A very similar GTV6 sold for $12k on BAT recently.
