Default Where to get engine parts

I have a 1996 subaru impreza wrx sti, v3 gc8d, jdm rhd. Does mine have the same motor as the 2002 bugeye wrx?

If I were to need engine parts would I just go to the local parts store and ask for the 2002 wrx parts? Or do some match and some do not?


Thanks alot.

Atm nothing, maybe sparkplugs, maybe a thermostat and also maybe a power steering pump which is the biggest issue...

No way! I live in manitoba, canada. I just got the car and first I want to start off with maintance, fluids, maybe plugs and thermostat, going to get it winter ready also, winter tires, block heater and undercoating just to be safe again rust..

and the reason i asked for power steering pump is because once in awhile when I make a turn ill hear a whine and I am thinking its the power steering pump making some noise... but it only does it once in a while...

Squeal doesn't necessarily mean new ps pump needed.
Swap/flush power steering. Use a turkey baster and suck out all the old PS fluid from reservoir. Refill with new. Repeat after a couple days of driving. Also look at replacing your accessory belt. Make sure not to over-tighten the belt. Squealing could also just be belt slippage from worn belt.

Plugs for your 96 will be the same as for an 02 wrx.
Thermostat will also be from an 02 wrx.
Radiator is from an 94 legacy turbo but without the trany cooler (try a legacy racing radiator).
Radcap is the same as a 02 wrx.
Rad hoses are different.
Fuel pump from/for an 02 wrx will work (such as a walbro 255lph).
Fuel filter from an 02 wrx will work.
Oil filter from an 02 wrx will work.
Water pump will be differient unless you have the oil/water heat exchanger.
Fuel pressure regulator from an 02 wrx will work.

Make that '91-'94 Legacy tubo parts (not '96).

Radiator hoses should be the same as the early turbo Legacy. Rocker cover gaskets should be the same as a '97-'99 Legacy EJ25D.

The non-oil-cooler water pump is the same a '92-'94 (NOT '91) Legacy turbo. The oil-cooler pump is a WRX pump (as mentioned).

No. USDM 02 WRX head gasket is 0.8mm thick and EJ20G and EJ20K gaskets are 1.4mm thick. 02 WRX pistons are 0.3 mm under deck, EJ20G and EJ20K piston protrude the deck by 0.3 mm.

you can get a power steering pump rebuild kit for under $30 from the dealer. pop it all apart and replace the seals. its really fast and easy (if you have an impact gun)
