Default 1992 Subaru Legacy Turbo EJ207

I'm Tyler and this will be the story of swapping a 207 and 6 speed into a 1992 Legacy Turbo. The Legacy has around 82k original miles on the auto and EJ22T. I plan on taking the V9 207 and V7 6 speed from my 2005 WRX and putting them in the Legacy. I am taking the whole WRX mechanically and swapping it into the Legacy.

I would like the car to have air conditioning, oil cooler and not sure on the intercooler yet. Either stay top mount or go front mount. Once I get to that point I will decide. I might swap out the automatic seat belts for manual ones if I can find someone to source me some.

It's going to be a slow and interesting process. I've had both of these cars for over five years and I have always wanted to do this. I moved the cars next to each other on 6/2 and will be starting to take the interiors apart to get the wiring harnesses out. Zephyr will be doing the wiring merge.

The swap was started with this mileage on the car.

I shuffled both cars over in the garage to have more room to work. I started removing all the interior in the Legacy to be able to pull the wiring harness out. I didn't break one clip. Pretty stoked on that.

I found the A/C drain tube was not attached properly. Looks to have leaked some water but not for long fortunately. Since I bought the car the A/C has never worked. I actually removed the compressor when I got the car.

I had some friends come over and help with the disassembly. We removed the complete wiring harness along with the front end of the car. Next is shifter and then we can drop the engine along with the transmission and front subframe.
