Default EJ20K into my 1993 Impreza L

I'm picking up my new 97 JDM WRX ej20k this Friday. And I'm very excited. I've owned my Scooby for 2 and a half years now, and never really got into the mods until a few months ago. This is her now:


(Def a *****ty pic! )

She's not much to look at, but she got a lot more fun to drive when I rigged my turbo up. BIG STEP UP! Let me know if anyone wants to buy the 1.8L engine or turbo. Still running like brand new. It's all disassembled now, though. And still pulls hard (well as hard is 100hp gets! )

Right now, I def want to get as much info from you guys as possible! Since, I've never done a swap before, I'd be great if I didn't run into stupid swap related problems, so I can get done as quick as possible. Since this car is my DD! I've searched and searched but all I've found is other people attempting the swap, so no solid info. So, if you've done it then post it.

So, let me know anything you've got to say! And if anyone any the area wants to come buy and lend an extra set of hands that would be great! And if you've got experience or beer, you'd better be there that much quicker.

Oh, and I plan on keeping this thread updated, so help make it better for everyone!

Wow. Just made the deal of a lifetime!

I'm going to pick up a 2 door, 1995 L with a million extra parts for $800 bucks! I'm very excited!

So, does anyone want to buy my wagon, lol?

LMK.

That guy that I was going to buy that chassis from was getting really sketchy with his answers, so I scrapped that idea. So, the engine is still going into the wagon!

I will have a 1997 WRX tranny going up for sale soon, as well as a 1.8 motor and a TD04!

LMK if you want any of those and we can get something worked out!

Oh, and I'm going to post pics of what we have so far tonight after we work today!
