Question What is under my hood???

I have a 1996 Impreza Brighton. Now the back of the car has a 2.2 sticker on the back, BUT. I have foud archives that say it never came with the 2.2, only the 1.8. So whats up? Is there a way I can tell? Or do I have to look up the VIN at the dealer? And that gets me to good part. IF it is a 1.8 will the turbos and the header bolt up? I know I am going to have to do some mod but that would make it real simpla. And I am going factory becuse I work in a junk yard. I can get the parts at cost so.. A turbo is a Turbo. Thanks for any information.

I don't know the answer to this Paully, but I'll reply just to put you back to the top of the list. Surely Joel or someone must know the answer.

I just looked on MSN and they said that the 1.8 was standard on the Brighton model in 1996. Perhaps it isn't really a Brighton, or someone was silly with the stickers.

I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I find any more info.

Andy (with a 1.8 for sure!)

Check the top of the engine block behind the alternator. It will be cast into the block EJ18=1.8 EJ22=2.5 EJ25=2.5. Hope this helps.

Hey Paully, you can find out for certain by running your VIN here:

My 1.8L FWD L is clean, and I'm looking at a salvage title 96LX 1.8AWD for a daily driver while I transform the L into a Franken-Scoobie!
