Default early subaru to full time AWD?

has anyone ever seen a early subaru with a full time AWD trans in it? it seems like I heard somewhere of a brat with a WRX engine in it, but ?? anyone know how feasible this swap is? a wrx engine(or even a N/A ej22 for that matter) in a coupe or hatchback would be pretty darn fast. things that come to mind as the big obstacles: engine mounts, axles, clutch. oh, and the wiring. any thoughts?

I dont understand what "full time AWD trans" has to do with "a wrx engine in a coupe or hatchback" have to do with each other though.

As far as I know, ej series engines will not bolt up to earlier engines that used selectable 4wd and fwd when disengaged. as for the wrx engine in a coupe or hatchback, that is a possible engine if or when a full time awd trans is used. BTW, thanks for the link.
