Default Ej18-ej20

I am planning on pulling out the EJ18 in my 96 impreza and dropping in an EJ20T. What all would I need to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this would help, I plan on purchasing the block from nippon-motors.com

I'm currently doing the swap into my 94 Impreza and should have it running by tuesday. I'll be glad to give you some tips once I'm done. First tip is to get all the wiring diagrams. I'm dropping an 02 US WRX engine just to clarify.
Take it easy, Micah

wellll.....

this is the swap i did

first double your budget
2nd think about engine managment
the engine nippon is selling is an older version of the ej20 the only thing that will work form vishnu is the turbo back exaust

i am currently at about 12k including the car

for the 650+shipping you will get a long block, turbo, manafold, and air to water intercooler.. it leaves a lot to buy..

also a warning noah in salt lake (same engine) had to have his block decked as his engine was not in great shape when he got it
mine is in ok shape but i will probblay rebuild it next year

where are you guy's getting these ej20's I'm looking to do the same swap in my 94 with a jdm ej20 obd 1 engine I've read a lot of things but a few things I need cleared up about swaps. I'll need a turbo cross memeber? and turbo trannys are a pull type and N/A trannys are a pull time ((or the other way around I dont remember)) soo how would I go about converting that?

well the trannys havent really changed much in the past few years,i dont know if thats a good or bad thing but the thing is you "can" use your tranny you have now cuz most if not all will bolt up to any ej series motor in ex: ej20t motor with ej18 tranny will work.i assume you will be getting a aftermarket clutch to handle some of the extra power...as for the crossmembers,etc......you''ll have to get some wrx parts.

I'm using an 02 WRX front crossmember and have to use washer for the controll arm mounts but the turbo legacy's sold here have a turbo crossmember that is supposedely a direct swap. I'm trying to use my old tranny and will let you know how it goes. WARNING: Depending on the age of your tranny use the appropriate caution so that your new found doubled power doesn't shread it to pieces!! I'm already looking into getting an STi or MRT gear set.
Take it easy, Micah

You will need the pull-type tranny (turbo transmission), pull-type flywheel and clutch, and the pull-type slave cylinder.

swap starr

Default clip

u want a WHOLE front clip.

you'll save yourself MAD mony in parts, etc. time too. and u might be able to reuse much of the wiring fromt eh clip. if u have a crazy bodyman friend, or can weld, u could simply do the mechanical and do the RWD swap off the clip, and keep the wiring all JDM
