Default Impreza L AT 2.2 -> WRX Tranny/rear

Question I have is does anyone know for sure which flywheel woudl be used (WRX or 2.2L MT) and which clutch would be used.

Basically we will be converting my L over from AT to MT using a WRX tranny and rear end. Eventually it will also get turboed as well. But that's a different story.

Thanks for any input.

The clutch and pressure plate need to match the transmission. You need a pull-type (subaru turbo style) pressure plate and matching clutch disk, and I'd reccomend the WRX flywheel.

Yeah we have the clutch, just was curious on the flywheel. So a WRX flywheel will work on the EJ22?

Thanks in advance for the help.

It should be the right bolt pattern, etc. The turbo-type pressure plate won't bolt to an N/A flywheel, as far as I know (but I might be off-base on that).

Yes, it bolts up to the EJ22. Trust me on this . My car wouldn't have driven after I swapped in my WRX transmission if it didn't. But you do have to match the clutch and flywheel to the transmission type.

that is the exact swap I did in my rally impreza using the WRX trannie drive shafts and rear diff... the only complaint I have is the change in final drive ratio... the auto is 4:11 and the WRX is 3:90 so the 2.2 L kinda "lacks" but we raced to Pro races with the combo and it worked just fine... however we are changing to the Legacy / Impreza RS 4:11 mt for quicker response with the 2.2...

my .02's worth ...

Steve good points but once the turbo goes on the 2.2 the gearing should be good to go I would think, right?

with the turbo, that should put your ratio on the ground just right. So (although not bad) if you can "suffer" the drive without the turbo until the swap time, thats a great combo to go with

Having the 4.111s on my WRX swap would be nuts. It whips through the existing 3.90 setup way fast as it is. For the anemic power plants it may be much better to have that 4.111 or 4.444 though.
