Well guys I have finally come to the crossroads. My 1994 SVX 4eat just went south. I was going to sale our 1993 Impreza AWD but now I am driving it again. So with all this said I have come to the EG33 crossroads. I really want to do this conversion but I also love my SVX. The SVX is however somewhat of a dog being it weighs alot more and the slushbox also aids in the slow department. My SVX is not an AWD it is FWD. I can always get another SVX later. I see them often for 1200 bucks.

Now with all that said I am thinking about cannibalizing the SVX and gathering everything to convert the Impreza over to the EG33.

Just wanted to get some opinions before I do this. Also my wife isnt sure about the whole EG33 conversion.

I think what you need is a good old 5speed swap. I love the EG but hate pulling a good machine apart for it. I'd say pick up a replacement trani and keep it roll'n. How many miles on it? I've got 86K on my 94LSi.

It has 168K on it. Wife and I have been talking more on this subject. I think we have decided to cannibalize the SVX. Its an L model with front wheel drive. I love this car but we are now going to buy an late 94 thru 96ish AWD LSI later this summer.

First I need to get my land cruiser project finished before I can even think about doing the soobie conversion. But by the end of this summer our impreza will be converted to an EG33. I just have to decide which is the most affordable and durable route for the transmission and rear diff. I am sure the drive train in the 1993 Impreza AWD will hold up to moderate driving but I know its going to need to be relaced before I can even think about romping on it.


feedback?

Alright, so there's an EG33 at a local junkyard inside an entirely gutted SVX.
I might do this.

Will EJ transmissions bolt up? I just got a new one >_<

Also, it's missing some parts - how hard is it to find an intake manifold, etc?

Oh, and also...um...if anyone wants that EG33 Shortblock let me know. That SVX looks so sad I might just want to buy it for an STi Swap or something.

and, uh...what's this about using a TMIC as a radiator?

I dunno, it's probably a POS to ship and I have no idea how much it's worth. It's about an hour drive away, I think I'll probably grab it myself, attempt the install, and if I decide it'll too much to deal with I'll sell it.

So you can use TMICs as radiators for these things?

Uuuh...no. Eg33s aren't air cooled. Find a proper radiator. car-part.com will have what you need.

well now i have a guy that wants to trade me some stuff for a wrecked 2001 Forester with AWD and a 5speed manual transmission. Hmmmm?

What do you guys think? Im almost tempted to use it to bring the SVX back to life and get the rear suspension cradle to convert it to AWD.

+1 for getting the SVX back on the raod. Sad to see when another one drops off the charts. The rear end won't help though. Well for the diff it will but you have a lot of work to convert. The whole subframe is what you'll need to find. Good idea though. I know a few people with FWD vehicles that were also AWD offered but it's just a lot to convert. Good luck though. Maybe now you'll save and get an EZ for your Impreza instead.

Ok we have a wrecked 1995 (OBD2) SVX that we are going to buy if the car is still there when the income taxes hit the bank. So now we would have two EG33's.

How much hp and torque can the factory drivetrain handle in the earlier Impreza's? Mine of course in an 1993 Impreza L AWD with a 5 speed. I have also located another 1993 Legacy that has a blown engine and it is AWD as well. Are they both rated at the same power or is the Legacy able to handle more? And what drivetrain parts for these years interchange without fabing (SVX, Impreza, Legacy)?

I would just like to get the EG33 into the Impreza for now and drive it mildly if possible. Then when I can located a decent 5speed and rear diff I will upgrade the drivetrain at that time. I dont have enough room to store everything so it woudl be ideal if I would be able to do the conversion now and the upgrades later.

^^ so I've got this thing on a pallett that's supposed to go to this guy.... lol shipping company dorked us around, so we're shipping monday

To everyone else, was messing with mine yesterday and noticed a few things, the motor sit's really high on the stock mounts and could stand to moved back about 1/2-1" without any major modifications to the cross member or compromising the rear header tube placement (stock headers would have to notch the cross member).

Anyone up for making a set of steel plates to use EJ series mounts with the relocation?

.... More delay? Any way of getting it rushed at least? I"m eager to get started with this. Even if I won't be dropping in for a bit or even yanking the EJ22 I"ll be getting her up on the stand and hopefully getting in there and cleaning as much as I can and checking all I can see. Oh I plan on running STi rods of forged ones ment for the STi's internals. Everything I've read has led me to beleive they will fit. Anyone got a length on the EJ conrods? 5.187" on the EZ's I guess I think I read that from Dylan on a different thread.

I got manley H-beam wrx rods for mine. I tore down the block, and I was about to place the rods on when I found out they were too thick. I had to take them to a machine shop to have the big end shaved down. I'm pretty sure stock STi rods will have to be shaved too. Good luck

Well that's good to know at least...... Any specs to go by for looking around? Actually has anyone started making some yet or am I still in the run stock/rework STi or after market/have a set custom made? WOuld be nice to find a set that will work or see that the STi rods will work. Anyone got side dementions?
