News 96 impreza coupe build

hey everyone just wanted to share what ive been doing at work the past couple months

we picked up a 96 impreza coupe with a factory 2.2 and swapped in a 94 2.0 turbo with 4spd auto ( im not familiar with the engine codes on the early japanese turbo motors maybe someone could inform me that would be awesome)

custom chassis harness had to be made from a mixture of the stock harness and the jdm harness

heres a link to some photos:https://plus.google.com/photos/11233...68720831129697

had some cold start issues in the beginning but after unplugging the maf traced it back to coolant temp sensor.

now the car has 04 wrx suspension and brakes and hauls ass!!

The car looks great so far. I like the early style hood and bumper. Pretty rare in the states.

Whatever you do don't paint your car red. You will be my twin.

I also have a 96 coupe but with the ej18. I've been thinking about putting in a ej20 from either a 96/97 or 98/99. my questions is do you know if I'll run into a problem using the usdm the dash harness? or is that only for new ej20's. Thanks for any info you have.
