Default 2004 Subaru Forester Transplanted into a 1995 Legacy

I am contemplating swapping a complete 2004 Forester XT into my 1995 Legacy Sedan. I could buy the complete forester for a decent price (wrecked in the front) and want to swap everything into my Sedan.

I would swap everything including the dash and interior. Complete wiring harness. I wonder if I am getting over my head

I will have plenty of free time soon (winter break from school)

Has anyone ever done this before? Does anyone have any recommendations?

I think this would be a very cool car once it is finished. I figure I will completely gut out the Forester and slower swap everything over. I know the dash is going to take some fabbing from what Ive read, but I feel the forester dash is way better looking than my 95 dash

Please chime in and tell me im crazy or...... GO FOR IT MAN

Thanks for any advice........

That is a lot of work. Not something that is going to be easy. I hope you have some serious free time, and can plan to spend most of it on this car, not sleeping, and doing take-out breakfast lunch and dinner for a couple weeks.

Have you done some research on these types of swaps? Once you read in to it a bit, you'll get the gravity of the work required to get it running.

Not trying to discourage you, just hope you know what you're in for.

He's Right on it being a PITA but if done right it will be worth it.
