Default 2.0 swap obd??

I am trying to decide on what i should do about a swap. i had originally planned on swapping US WRX in to my 93 L wagon, but have the opportunity to pick upa clean 97 sedan. My concern is the OBD difference. I am worried about emissions with the OBD2 car. I would be saving money with the 97 cause i would pull the motor and the trans.

what should I do?!?!?

Obviously there is a little more crap to work with on an OBDII car. But it should be doable.

I personally would go with an OBDI car and go JDM.

If you like the USDM engines because of parts abundance and EM solutions, go for it.

I wouldn't worry about using the '97 engine at all. Just use your '93 intake manifold harness, throttle body, coil pack, and ECU and the car will run just like it did with the original engine...

remember that the OBD-1 L's are quite a bit lighter, the Impreza gained some weight in 96.
