Question who can actually do a swap for me in NC/SC?

im in charlotte, NC. who around here would be able to put a WRX engine (not really worried about which one) into a 97-99 legacy GT? it don't matter to me if its a company or a subaru mechanic in his garage at home, i'm just wondering if theres anyone that can do the swap around here. i can do suspension work and mess with exhaust and speakers, but an engine swap is way over my head

I dont know of anyone down there but I got some buddies up here in mass at East Coast Swappers that can do it no problem. I believe someone from your area had their RS delivered to them to do it. Not sure if you want to ship your car up here to do but they are good at what they do.

Have you posted the same question on www.rs25.com? A friend of mine just bought a motor from a guy in raliegh, nc swapping a 05 LGT motor into to his '97 L wagon. He had previously swapped the 2.5L that my friend bought. He may be able to help.

Not much, oil pan, swap out injector wiring, check all the seals and prep the car for the swap. right now he is out of twon for 3 weeks and my shop wont be open until april 15th. We will use it for the swap.

Auto-x season should be in full swing by May so we are trying to have it ready by then.

Sorry OP didnt mean to hijack your thread
