(flame suit on)
I have a 95 1.8 fwd that i scored for dirt cheap. last week i also bought a 03 wrx rolled, but with solid drive train. i want to swap the 2.0! my question is.....Can i just swap everything wrx into the L? the engine trany cross members suspension rear end drive shaft ect.?


also this is going to more of a track car. my car is all manual, 0bd1,and planning to install a fuel cell.

Two different swaps, but yes it can be done. First swap will be to convert to awd, next to swap to the ej205. Plenty of information available on both; keep searching, both questions have been asked many times.
Rs25.com is also a good source of information for the 93-2001 imprezas.

so anybody else have any input??? its starting to seem like its impossible.

i personally don't see why it wouldn't work. if the sub frames fit, the motor fits, i bet the suspension should fit.
anyone know if wrx struts fit the L

It's not impossible.

Bl.easy (can't remember the format of his name) converted his L FWD into a RHD AWD car with the JDM WRX engine.
