Default 1994 subaru impreza L swapped

Hey all. I will almost certainly be purchasing a 1994 subaru impreza L (not legacy) with a wrx swap. Super clean and a good deal. I have a couple questions that I hope some of you will be able to help with!
First, the car has manual windows: I'd like to swap those out for power windows. Do any of you helpful people know which door panels/ power window mechanisms will work? This is a sedan so I will need it for ALL FOUR DOORS!
Second, I would also like to swap in a FULL STi interior... Is this all a direct swap? (Door cards and all)
Third and lastly, I test drove the car yesterday. Everything worked great. No power mods which is something that puts me at ease. One thing I noticed when I drive it was, when I went in to turn, I had it turn the wheel a lot to get the at to turn in sharply. After a certain point the car would turn like my 2006 Rex and bite in pretty hard. I'm wondering how to fix this. I noted the front tires are a little more worn than the rear. I'm wondering if this could attribute to what I was experiencing. Also, will an STi steering rack fix the issue?



I appreciate everyone's help in advance. Let me know if I need to go into more detail about the issues mentioned above! Hope you all are having a great day and thanks again!

Wow, nobody has an answer for any of this? I found an answer to the first two questions (Interior and windows) but I cannot find anything about the steering issue. Any help would be appreciated. If clarification is needed on what is going on, please say so!

Yes more clarification is needed. Would need to know if the steering rack has been swapped along with which suspension pieces were swapped.

Christ.


What steering rack does it have? if you don't know... most likely it doesn't have the STI rack. So if you want to change it out you have a few things to consider.


1. HOw did they mate the steering rack to the steering column. Big question here.

2. Say it was done correctly and they mated the Impreza column to the WRX rack, if you want a quicker steering, you will need to change out the rack. period. a good rack is about what $200... give or take.


3. tires have nothing to do with how it turns.


4. If you like the car and the swap, for a cute price, it's worth it. ......


now if this guy is trying to fleece you and is asking more than $8K, i would be worried. Unless it's a FULL wrx swap. You leave so many details out, it's hard to say.

2cents.

The entire drivetrain from a single wrx was swapped into it. Interior, steering wheel, , motor, transmission, axles, hubs, wheels, brakes... the whole bit so I'm assuming the wrx steering rack was swapped in as well.

$6500 btw...
