Lakewood, Massachusetts? never heard of it.

What help are you looking for?

The Impreza you're looking at already has an EG33 swap, or you're planning on doing that?

First off if it is to good to be true then it prob is. Second if all that needs to be done is wirign why didnt he just finish it? Sounds like this is a huge headache that this guy just wants to get rid of. ALso if you are cmoing from B18's which is a Honda motor then you dont know the first thing about working on Subaru and I would strongly suggest just walking away from this now! This is going to turn into a huge project and cause you more trouble then it is worth. i guarentee it needs a lot more then just wiring to be finished. ALso think it has never been turned over or anything so who knows if he did everything right. For all you know you could pay to get th wiring done and then have it not start meaning you then have to dig into and basically undo everything he did to figure out why it wont start. Trust me this is someone els headache they are trying to get rid of do not buy it! Just my opinion. If this is your first subaru buy something that is already runnign and drivable. Theres plenty of subaru out there in great condition that either have swaps already done and are drivable or are stock and running and just waiting for a swap tp be done.

Hey dude its your money and gonna be your car so it is complety up to you. All Im saying is this sounds like someone elses headache and I wouldnt want it to become mine. If you want to work on another prject why not start with soemthing fresh instead of pick up where someone else left off and buy yourself either a shell and do a full swap yourself or buy something bone stock with high mileage for cheap and do the swap in that yourself. Im sure you can find something with a very nice body and interior to do a swap on. this looks like not only does it have wiring that needs to be finished but is gonna need some body work, paint, interior and just a lot of work. Again its your money and gonna be your car/ project Im just saying if it were me I would want to start with something that looked cleaner and be able to do the whole swap myself from start to finish so I knew everything was done correctly and I was inheriting someone elses problems.

I took a walk over to look at the car during my lunch break. It doesn't seem like the owner did a very good job on the install. Seems to be JB Weld instead of engine mounts, rubber hoses instead of metal exhaust. And the Engine said GE33, not EG33. Which I thought was weird...

The wiring is probably the easy part of the swap. I'd be more concerned with the front of the car since modifications have to be made to move the radiator a few inches forward to accommodate the engine.

its a horrible idea buying someone elses project if you have exactly zero experience with the car in general.

Not always. It is probably one of the best ways to learn.
There are so many so called "modders" who only know how attach parts that only bolt on and plug in. They actually don't know a ****ing thing.

OP can learn to be superior with this car.
