Thanks guys I was thinking about Swaping out my 98 legacy GT with one. How hard was it for your friend to do his swap. Any info would be helpful. Have a great day.

It was, beyond a doubt a pain in the ass and very costly since parts arent readily availiable here in the states. This kids father owns a Subaru shop up here and the kid is one of the head mechanics for the shop and they all even said that it was the biggest PITA to do. Honestly its more cost effective to do a USDM swap because there are more parts out there for the engines here state side, so you dont have to find a vendor that can get you specific parts from Japan when something breaks and you dont have access to here. Also another reason to go with a USDM is because there is more knowledge out there about it and shops are more accustomed to seeing and working on those types of engines.

JDM swaps are cool, just not the smartest, or most cost effective way to go at all

Would be, but seriously the costs far outweigh the benefits big time

Yea there are better domestic alternatives to the TT setup now besides the inherent headaches.

Probably wouldn't be as bad if you went with right hand drive. But you still have all the rare part issues. Really hard to justify when a 2.5l turbo motor would work so much more easily with gobbs of torque.

B4's are 2 litre, so they're EJ20's.

How big is the valley of death on that TT setup, anyway?

Pretty large, they are working on some EM to try and reduce it.
