Default ej20T to impreza L coupe swap?

Hi im throwing around the idea of building an impreza L and swapping a ej20 sti motor into it. Have you guys seen this done b4? WHt kinda cost am i looking ta for the actual sawp. I can get a good motor for 6k and a car for about 1-2k just need to know wht cost im looking ta for the swap itself....Is this a direct swap aka motor mounts will work or is it going to require custom fab work. let me know wht u guys think....id also love to know a few places i could get parts for the car like sum of the hard to find electrical...Also do u know where i can find an engine for around 5-6k an ej20 sti motor JDM would be cool

thanks again let me know wht u all think

Why would anyone want to do such a thing?




<-----------

Really the FAQ sticky above is your friend. There are several experienced shops that do this. Give your location and we can recommend a place near you.
Price depends on what you want to swap in. A Version 9 would be the most and ranges down from there. No fab work is necessary, but lots of wiring is usually needed depending on what is going to what.

My frend just sold a STi V5 w/ tranny, and ecu, turbo,ect...for 4500 i belive, and thats a pritty good deal. and a V6 is pritty mutch the same thing.

the engine is expensive...same thing w/ tranny.

have you looked into an EJ20G? is 1993-1995 STi engines, and they are capable of the same things the V5/V6 can, the major diff. is in the heads.
but an EJ20G is only 1/3 of the price of the EJ207.
A buddy of myne put a n Ej20G into a 1993 AWD impreza L, and ran a 13.6 up in SLC,UT(4000FT). and it was all stock, even the 1.8 tranny. the EJ20G had 0 mods. not even a filter. Got a chance to go at it w/ an STi and the impreza pulled a car or more on it from 30-130mph. Evo's couldnt even keep up.
if u intrested i can get u a EJ20G w/ tranny and all the goods for a decent price. so PM me if intrested.

i'm currently piecing the final parts for the complete swap into a brighton coupe. the cost is pretty high and make sure you have stash of around 10k to at least start depending on which sti motor you go with. the motor mounts and such are the same. its the wiring thats a little difficult to get a hold of as well as the little misc stuff

Smile swap

I picked up a 1995 wrx clip for 1,500 and have been quoted 2,000 by two local shops (harman motive and suby specialties) for the labor. Half of the price is for the wiring. The ej20G is the only ej series with a closed deck and I think it's a great platform. If you want a V6 that is great but I think if you can get a motor with the same power potention for less than 2,000 it makes more sense. Good luck with you project it should be fun.

Here is what you get with a EJ20g engine

1. Closed Deck.....yahh, woohoo thats great...if you are making 500+whp
2. Crap rods
3. Crap pistons
4. Crap heads
5. A 15 year old engine

The only nice thing about a EJ20g is the price....and there is a damn good reason its so cheap. If you want a 220hp daily driver then the EJ20g isnt a bad choice. If you want a strong engine that can make serious power get a ver 7.

Angry wow

You seem to be angry at the ej20g. Did it do something to you? For a specialist you seem uninformed. The ej20g from a 1995 wrx comes from the factory with 260hp not 220 silly. I don't really think that forged pistons are crap but you may be right about the rods. But if the guy who started this thread could do what i have done and build a car that can pull on sti's for 5500, i thought i was giving him helpful information. I would suggest it to anyone. Some people like to spend money but I don't how an extra 4500 for 40 hp and a stronger tranny is worth it.

Uninformed specialist thats me. Most EJ20G's you find for sale are from Legacys/Libertys with an air to water intercooler, these all were around 220hp. Engines from the WRX sedan and STi had slightly more hp. And if you find an EJ20G STi engine thats a pretty amazing find. Angry at the EJ20G...naaaa its a good engine comparable to the EJ205. Forged pistons haa?? Only in the hard to find STi.
