I knew somebody would eventually get courious. Bad monkey ! Just kidding.
I have a 96 legacy sedan ls trim with auto currently. Just a little history on my project: I bought the car a year and a half ago with the intent of modding it. Originally wanted a impreza, but couldn't find one, and then i stumbled across this car and was VERY impressed, so i bought it. I had pretty much just got out of my 91 sentra se-R that i had installed a jdm pulsar sr20det in. I wanted something that was more of a sleeper.

First engine plan-bought an entire 93 turbo legacy sedan w/5mt
Didn't like it-

Second engine plan-bought an entire 95 svx for the H6 3.3 swap. Didn't fit very well

Third engine- Bought an entire 02 wrx wagon-got paranoid the 5mt wouldn't hold the power i wanted...

Fourth and hopefully final engine plan - 03 jdm wrx sti non RA with 6 speed.

How far am i along? Well, i have the car, the new engine and transmission and some of the needed parts.
My biggest problem is making up my mind and getting going. Once i get going the swap shouldn't take long (hopefully)

I plan on doing a lot of other stuff to the car as well when it's all apart. I would like to do this once and not several times to get it right, so i'm taking my time. I will probably do suspension, brakes and bushings at the same time. As well as other thing too like gauges and all that.

I didn't install any of the above engines just to let everyone know.
