Well well well where do I start with this? So basically I've had this dream/idea of having a SR20 powered subaru. Since my 1st love was a gc8 and my 2nd was my SR/S13 I only thought it would be necessary. I always wanted to do it but was low on funds. I got together with some newly acquainted people that are pretty damn good at what they do when it comes to fabrication and wiring. The guys down at Duncan Motors here in Vallejo, CA have been more than helpful to me. The guys down there most definitely know what they're doing especially when it comes to fab work and electrical. We are going through the process of making EVERYTHING perfect for this setup from motor placement to the actual geometry of the car. This car has a lot of man hours and patience put into it, and when you see the finished project you will understand why. This car already had a SR in it and was running but was strictly a mock up, but the engine blew so now I'm basically starting over. I yanked the old motor and got another one. Basically what we have here is a 95 Impreza L that has been converted from AWD to RWD. The car was originally supposed to be a track car, but I'm working on putting interior back together and using it on a daily basis. I know there is less than a handful of people already trying this swap, but i plan to be the first on actually having it running and driving with ZERO problems. For the mock fit, the crossmember was lowered 1 1/2inch and notched. We used solid polyurethane S13 engine mounts with a S13 Nismo transmission mount. The welded R160 differential and 1-piece driveshaft is already made and ready to go as well. Please feel free to ask any questions. These are pictures of where the car stood almost 2 years ago. (02 WRX dash, FMIC and some other things haha). The nicer/cleaner looking Impreza is just a parts car i bought. More pictures will be posted after every step is complete!
