2.5 Legacy GT - Impreza L Engine swap Help Please!
I am looking for any information people are willing to share with me regarding the engine out of an MY98 2.5 Legacy GT.
I am in the process of rebuilding this engine and am planning an attempt of swapping it with my MY93 Impreza L.
I have a few concerns here, first of all, my car is FWD. I am currently enrolled in an auto tech school but have not learned enough about drivetrains yet to know if my swap will work.
Would it be possible to swap this motor directly into my car? I will need to get a matching transmission, I currently have an automatic, but I plan on switching to 5S. I need to know if I need to find a 5 speed made for this exact motor or if various Impreza trannys would fit as well.
If I want to do this, what parts do I need to complete this swap, ECU, Wire Harness, etc.
Also, does anyone have any of these necessary parts?
I'd appreciate a lot of help on this because I am not aware, but I dont think this swap has ever been done. If it HAS, I'd love to know who has performed it and any help they have to offer would be greatly appreciated.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Let's see . . . yes, the engine will drop the 2.5L engine into an L, however, I wouldn't recommend dropping the 2.5L DOHC engine into your car. Those engines were notorious for blowing headgaskets. Piss-poor design. I would recommend the newer 2.5L SOHC engine instead.
Also, there's someone on this board who's in the process of doing the exact swap you're mentioning. I can't remember his handle, but search in the normally aspirated forums for 2.5L swap impreza L, or something along those lines.

If you're in need of any parts, send me a PM. I swapped my 2.5L engine out of my 97GT (blown block) and I have everything sitting in my garage (the engine, ECU, MAF adapter, intake, wiring, etc...). I will be posting a For Sale thread sometime soon with a list and pictures of everything that I am selling.
