Default Will the new legacy be able to use 02-04 wrx parts? Suspension, engine, etc

What do you guys think. I mean i would be modding my wrx right now if I was sure. How about those people over seas tell us.

I would say no, as it has a different suspension, different frame, different engine and different dimensions. Asides from seats, steering wheels and that sort of thing there won't be much that can cross over. Possibly a downpipe (like into the Sti).

no way jose, and from the sound of it, it would be a downgrade.

you could probably use a few of the parts for the STi powertrain because they are both basically the same 2.5t, BUT even then it will be limited.

But from a normal '02-'05 wrx, I think barely anything will work at all.

Very few parts would cross over, especially from the suspension. Some aftermarket parts for the WRX may be a downgrade rather than an upgrade as well. The new Legacy turbo is whole different beast than the outgoing version.

Wheels, brake upgrades and some things like that will work, but suspension and engine are very different.

Even brakes might be a downgrade as the new legacy is gonna use STi size brake rotors

When i was looking at them on the car, i'm pretty sure they're larger than the WRX brakes, but never got around to asking anyone about it. What i meant is that brake upgrades would be compatible.

The new 17s are nice though

Give it some time, and the new Legacy will have it's OWN line of aftermarket parts. Won't take too long this time I think, with a turbo version and all.

I had a '98 Indiana GT wagon that was awesome. Never needed a trip to the dealer for anything other than routine maintenance, and it was a strong motor, too.

ANYthing from the WRX would be a downgrade for the new Legacy, which btw, gets 12.4" rotors up front, and 11.3-inches out back. Those are some serious brakes. The calipers aren't final yet, according to the well-informed Jamie, but hell, if two-pots are good enough for the Corvettes, they're good enough for me.

I wonder about the Legacy aftermarket, though, as in will the demographic profile of the Legacy buyer support much of a tuner market? I know that I'm a modding fiend, and won't be touching my new Legacy, except to take the winter wheels on/off the car. That will be something interesting to watch. The other question is, in light of the difficult-to-mod ECU that the '04 WRX has, what does the Legacy hold in store for would-be power tuners? We already know that fiddling with the exhaust is going to be expensive, because of its dual configuration.

Ok, modifying this question and cross-posting a question I had from AFI...

How about an OLDER Legacy? Specifically the 5MT Legacy Outback from '96, with the blingin' 2.2L...

Can it take any EJ20T parts? Like... exhaust manifold to uppipe to turbo to downpipe, with associated ECU mods to handle boost?

That would be sweet, as I plan to upgrade the WRX and would love to be able to put the stock parts to good use!
