Question 1.8 to STi 2.0 swap... need some help.

Okay, my friend needs a few questions answered. He is looking at buying a 1995 Impreza coupe... AWD, 5-speed, 1.8. Everything is stock. He has a few componants from a 1997 WRX STi, and he wants to do an engine swap. What will have to be replaced on the coupe to allow this to work? He already has the engine, the ECU, and the wiring harness i think. He really wants to know if the entire driveline will have to be replaced, or just parts of it? And also, was the 1995 a cable clutch system or hydraulic? Was the 1.8 engine SOHC, DOHC or pushrod? Thanks!

You can also PM Jude Demeis on this board. He has done an engine swap also on an older model.

the engine should bolt up to the transmission just fine..

they are both hydrolic clutch.. at least the 1995 i saw was hydrolic

i'm pretty sure the 1.8L is SOHC
not that it matters if you have an STI engine you won't need that piece of just... keep us updated on how your swap is going
