Take a look around in the stickys for this forum. The process is pretty well documented. If they info in the stickys aren't enough, a search should bring up many hits on this.

It all works and it's not too hard, just no fun going from FWD to AWD.

HAHA give up on the Duratec engine swap?? An AWD swap is much easier if you have a donor car. Where do you plan to get all the parts needed? I would sell that FWD car and get a 95 AWD. Then if you still want 20 extra hp you can do the 2.5l swap.

Right now on ebay there are 3 AWD Impreza's under $500. They prolly wont go over $1000. You wont be able to do an AWD swap for $400.
