Default 02 Forester EJ205 Swap questions,clockspring compatibility and also hood scoop advice

[left]Will a clock spring (roll connector) from an 02-03 wrx work in my SF forester?

Also, has anybody installed a hoodscoop on a car that has never had a scoop? Any advice?

My Forester is up and running with the exception of a broken and botched ribbon repair on the clockspring, a slight leak making it run lean, and in need of a hood scoop installation.

Next question.

Can I put USDM Forester XT heads on an EJ205 2.0 block, put the USDM intake manifold/tgv's on and it will work?

No you can't use the EJ255/257 heads on a EJ205.

Oh and the manifold in the pictures has been 'worked on' as the EJ20G idle control valve flange has been removed and welded up.

Not that the EJ20g is terrible or anything but that EJ20 is a phase 1 engine. It would make your life loads easier if you went with a phase 2 engine i.e. EJ205, EJ255 stay away from those EJ20(letter) blocks. That engine probably came out of a BC/BJ Legacy.

I'm surprise they had coil packs in this phase 1 motor. Sure it ain't jdm?

I'm pretty sure its JDM pulled from a 93-96 wrx wagon automatic. it looks like it is in great shape though, I wish you could see it. The timing belt still feels new, everything is super clean, I just need to get it sold asap.

So I ended up doing the swap, I've still got some plugs that are unaccounted for (and also the CEL is on, and the airbag light is on. Also fighting my clutch problems, I think the slave cylinder either needs to be replaced or bled.

So it runs and drive's a lot better, clutch issues got figured out mostly and now it's down to just a few more little things.

Will a clock spring (roll connector) from an 02-03 wrx work in my SF forester?

Also, has anybody installed a hoodscoop on a car that has never had a scoop? Any advice?
