Default sad news and glad news

The sad news is I have a beautiful ej20 in my garage equipped to go into my legacy. It seems that the clip I got from japn was to early of a model so the wiring won't work . The good news is I'm taking the turbo etc. and putting it on my legacy, so now I will be in your "club". I'm planing on runing about 6 psi, any wisdom would be useful.

what exactly do you mean won't work

you will be better off using the ej20 long block and ej25 harness than turboing the ej25

things like
oil and water lines
lower compression
oil cooler

correctly sized injectors 425cc vs 280cc

Even if you got the same year EJ20 engine as your car, the wiring still will not work. This isn't a honda swap, any engine swap in a subaru requires new wiring to the ECU

I know this. I got a obd-1 engine, not two. The wiring would be basically impossible. Especially since it was from a 94 jdm wrx. Maybe if I knew japanese and had fsm for it.

welll

not exactly
ther are both dohc
both have the same crank and cam sensors
same water/oil sensors
same plugs on the injectors

you will need a piggy back to adjust the fuel and spark but you are going to have to do that any way ..

i know of several people that ran ej22t motors off 1.8 ecus for extend periods of time

and for what its worth who ever told you the wireing won't work in your 97 (assuming you haev it all) is WRONG. it will work ..
