If thereís already a write up on these being swapped into whatever PLS send me the link and iíll get reading.

IF you do know from experience if these will work for a swap into an Impreza like mine PLEASE reply.
The link BlackBearded posted has plenty of information about H6 swaps. Of course, that's info from all sorts of different members doing swaps in various cars, so it's not a direct "how to" thread. The short answer is YES, you can swap an EZ30 and 6MT into your '96 Impreza. The challenge will be the wiring / engine management.

If you're on FB, check out the Six Swapped Subarus group. There are folks in that group who have experience with some of the aftermarket / stand-alone engine management systems.

What does an '02-05 WRX have to do with his '96 LX?
