You'll probably be told to search, but in short the twin turbo engine will only fit if you convert to single turbo. Or if you found a RHD mail lagacy

The short answer, yes it can be done. Yes it is much more involved than a single turbo JDM Subaru motor. Why bother? The twin-turbo setup in the JDM Subarus is hardly the end-all, be-all performance motor. In fact, no one has shown it has any more potential than a regular single turbo motor.

Not worth the headache and extra expense, IMHO.

Ok, first off the ej20 has been around a while. The ej20t that nippon sells is the older legacy turbo motor. You will need a lot of extra parts to get this working.
If you're seriously interested i have a 93 turbo legacy engine package for sale for 1100 bux. This includes almost everything you need except radiator to make your car turboed.
Let me know.
