I'll second that.
the only crap year is the '93. Don't ever get invloved with that year.
It takes me about 40 hours to do a full EJ20 swap. that includes pulling the stock motor, exhaust, cross member, interior, fuel pump and then installing all that wrx stuff plus re-wiring (soldering about 30 wires).
These cars are pretty much like VW's...they are all the same...pretty much.
