Default Buy Rising Sun Short block and disassemble

Hi legends,
Ok so the time has come to get myself a block and start building.

So with my limited but growing theoretical knowledge but v limited practical knowledge, im looking for the best start point.

Please advise me if this is a totally shit idea.

Buy a brand new ej257, 270kw short block from Rising Sun. They provide block.
My thinking is they will send a perfectly built medium power short block as a start point.

Now there is no rush to get it into a car (will be 2011 wrx at this stage, tranny upgrade when/if needed).

So my question is, would it be to my advantage to buy the RSS short block and set about dismantling it (very slowly and cautiously) in order to greater improve my knowledge and build skills.

So yes dismantle meticulously and then rebuild without changing anything.
Kind of a reverse engineering project.

Also at least i know the engine is spot on before dismantling, therefore the many things i am not familiar with, tolerances/measurements/testing etc will be correct.
So I wont be fucking that shit up on my first build. Just taking measurements and observing the detail.

So the intention to dismantle a RSS short block, learn, observe, upskill and then complete the long block and put into a 2011 wrx with a Blouche 1.5xtr or so.

Can any please advise me if this is a fairly sane idea and path to follow?

Or its a totally shit idea and id be better off taking another

Any constructive guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah nah! Not your name but the statement.

Why pull apart a newly built block... I just don't see the point, sure you want to learn but I'd be getting just a std short block and going from there.

That's my opinion though, I certainly wouldn't be paying someone for a built motor only for me to pull it apart...

(Yeahnah) - Do you even own a wrx atm or am i missing something?

Why would you buy a motor that has been built, disassemble it, which will no doubt void any warranty RS have with it and then fuck around with it? Jump on gumtree or the likes and find an ej205/255 to learn on. Some things are better left to the professionals...whoever in your eyes that may be.

Don't take that the wrong way.

No this is a bad idea. If you really want to learn, buy a second hand ej25 shortblock with low compression etc and strip it down. If your lucky like me you will find one with only a broken ringland and all the bearings are intact and you can fiddle to your hearts content before building it. But honestly all the tolerances are written in plain english so i dont get what you are hoping to achieve out of stripping a freshly built block.

The RSS shortblock will be more than capable of handleing a 1.5xtr as it is.

In light of such resounding ridicule, this is the route I'll likely take.
