Default idea that i cant find or have ever heard of...

well, i was thinking on the way back to my room tonight, when i passed an older Legacy turbo. and i thought, as impreza owners, we have the ability to swap to a jdm engine. and for those even luckier people with WRX's, they can just drop an engine in with wiring AVCS.
SO, heres the idea. would it be possible to take a early 90's legacy turbo, and get an early EJ20G from an STi and just drop in. that would be the sleeper of the century in my book. so, its just a thought, so i just decided to throw it out there.
also, if anyone has the wiring diagrams for the cars, it would bepretty easy to figure out.
welp, theres my midnight shpeal.
thanks,
tyler

Pretty sure its been done before.

Another novel idea: get an already turboed Legacy over here and mod that!

ive read many different threads about the USDM legacy turbos topping out quite low because of the head design.
plus, i know tht it can be wired in, but will a japanese turbo motor of the same generation (lets say an STi Version 2 RA) just drop in and plug in like a V7 swap into a WRX.

p.s. a RHD old school Legacy RA would be sick.

Do a search in this forum for my Legacy 2.0GT conversion. You should find all you need. It is a pretty easy swap. And if you want to find the parts and pay me labor I will do one for you since I am local...

And using a USDM Legacy Turbo as a starter car is an option, but most of them are autos...
