Default friend bought a '95 impreza 1.8 fwd

my friend recently got a 1995 impreza sedan 1.8 fwd from his grandmother for free! it has 92k miles - the interior looks mint but the outside has the usual wear for that kind of mileage... anyway i drive a 2001 dodge neon so i only have limited knowledge of subaru's aside from detailing at a subaru dealer. the regular maintenance things like timing belt, water and oil pump, plugs, wires, oil change, etc will be taken care off with the help of the mechanics at work... i just have a few questions for you guys

does the 2.2 (or will the newer '98-01 2.5rs) swaybars bolt on without modification (provided they are of larger diameter... are they?)?

rallitek lightweight crank pulley for a '98-01 2.5rs... will it fit on the 1.8?


Maf' Pod Intake and Heat Shield (from xcceleration.com) for 2.5rs.... will it work

any suggestions for things that are known to work that i may have missed? we're just looking for cheap little improvements to the car

please dont flame me for asking these questions... im use to the neon crowd where many things are swappable from the 2.0 to 2.4 and vice versa even though they sometimes arent advertised that weigh so i was unsure whether the same is true with the 1.8, 2.2, 2.5, etc

Assuming the car has sway's on it already, then yes, any GC/GM/GF sways will fits if they are for the RS.

Crank pulley: I want to say yes, but DO NOT quote me on that one.

MAF intake: I know that my 93' did not have the same style MAF as the 99' RS's have. Kartboy.com sells MAF plates for the older style MAF's, it comes with a 3" pipe opening to take just about any cone style filter.

Hope this helps.

that should be the adapter you need. I took some flat metal and bent it to fit and mount in two locations, one of which was the factory mount that the bottom part of the filter box mounted to. All else you need is some hardware to bolt it on and enjoy,

the fwd does not have the proper rear later links for the rear sway bar
you have to get some different ones or mod the current ones

Since many people with RS's swap engines for WRX engines, you could probably get a 2.5 engine for cheap and it SHOULD be very easy to swap right in. (just as an option)

crank pulley should swap across. I thought all EJ series motors share the same crank pulley.

As for an intake, why spend big cash when you can grab an ebay intake for $16 plus the cost of a filter? If you don't go with the basic ebay pipe, get a cobb or something that actually reaches down into the fender, otherwise there's no need (in my opinion) to spend tons of money on a bent piece of aluminum piping. The only thing when shopping for an intake, is to make sure that you don't buy one for a MAP car, because that EJ18 should be a MAF based car.

I looked up the intake for legacies, to avoid pulling any turbo intakes up, but here you go:
http://cgi.ebay.com/COLD-AIR-INTAKE-...QQcmdZViewItem

And a slightly different variation, and probably better to get into the fender:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/93-01...spagenameZWDVW

That's just the tip of the iceberg though. Here's the thread that inspired my ebay purchase:

Cheers!
