Default Engine swapping?

Is engine swapping a common thing in these cars? Can you drop an ej20tt into a car with a 1.8? Thanks.

Run a search on the conversions forum. Yes, what you mentioned is possible and has been done before. This is the wrong forum for this question.

That particular swap is a bad idea, the twin turbo setup will take a lot of work to fit in a LHD car, but if you check out the stickies in the conversion forums you can learn a lot about the number swaps available for your car. Lots of options with any Impreza/Subaru.

you can basically swap any EJ series engine into an RS....so it all depends on time and $

you got lots of $ and a bit of time? go for the entire USDM STi drivetrain.....a decent amount of $ and some time ? version 7 drivetrain....and so forth all the way down to a 2.2 swap

No it doesn't have to be a RS...

Another good option if you don't have huge funds is the EJ22T motor with 2.5 heads and a different turbo. That should get you going for awhile...
