Question AWD swap clarifcations (searched)

I just wanted to ask a few simple questions to make sure I have my facts straight.

I'm making a MY95 base model impreza brighton coupe AWD (for starters).

I know what parts I need from the numerous other threads I just wanted to make sure I was correct about a few things

1) I can get these parts out of any MY93-01 impreza, legacy, forester sedan, coupe or wagon?

2) Does any one have the gear ratios for the various transmissions that no one cares about. Where all awd manuals 3.9? If not where could I find a 4.11 or 4.444?

3) Does the AWD gas tank have anything mounted to it? Could I just use a fuel cell instead (I need to install one any how)

Thank you,

Chris Shafer

I thought all the brightons came awd but had no options...also would mean you have the EJ18 motor and 4.11:1 gearing

Maybe it's just an Impreza then... I was told by the owner it was a brighton coupe. It doesn't really matter. I know for sure it's not AWD. It's a GM2(vin)... Any how it doesn't really matter I'm more curious about the part interchange esp between wagons and legacy's.

Thanks,
Chris

you can use legacy AWD if you want or gas tank. most subies will be 3.9. if you do an RS drivetrain you'll need a petal box converison. IIRC 95's are suppost to have an AWD gas tank but I really don't know since I don't have a 95 I've just heard this somewhere. if you search for old school nasioc. I'm one of the few who's done an AWD swap. and I should have some AWD parts if you want to buy them off of me some time soon dude to I have a crashed RS parts car that I'm using that rear end out of and my old rear end is coming out ((that sounded funny)) and I'd be selling that. you'd still need to part some peices together but atleast the rear end would be there!

I heard the same rumor about the gas tanks, but mine is defaintly the FWD tank. I'm not sure about the exact production date.

I don't really see how'd you be able to use a fuel cell in the stock gas tank location unless it has a hump in the middle for the drive line.

If you're prepping a race car, I'd probably just leave the gas tank out, and put a fuel cell in the trunk.
