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.

Plans:
V9 EJ207
V7 Non DCCD 6 Speed TY856WB1CA
GD Subframes
GD Fuel Tank
Stoptech BBK
FHI 2 Pots

Coilovers

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.


June 20, 2020

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.

June 21, 2020

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.

Got some more progress done on the car. Removed the engine and transmission with the subframe.









Also got the rear subframe out. Next weekend will be removing the fuel tank.

July 5, 2020

After celebrating this weekend a friend and I removed the T brace and fuel tank. The fuel tank had about five gallons left in it. We hotwired the fuel pump to drain it all out. It was a blue with yellow stripe wire for positive and a black wire for negative. That's all we did for now. Crazy to see all the undercoat on the car.









The car will live on jack stands for now. I need the quickjacks to start removing parts off of my WRX.



August 30

Some friends and I removed the rear sub frame, fuel tank, engine and transmission this weekend. We first drained as much fuel as possible. Made it a lot easier to drop the tank. Everything came out pretty smooth considering we had to raise the car up a few inches with a forklift to pull the engine out.

Needs some love in a few spots. For the year and mileage it's amazing. This car actually came from the DC area.

I bought a complete 04 WRX harness for the wire merge. Both harnesses have been dropped off. Now to swap all the parts!

I did some work on the WRX yesterday. Removed the radiator and got the clutch master and slave off. I am just waiting on a friend for the pedals assembly for the Legacy. Then I can mount up the master. Its been so hot and it's like an oven in the garage so work has been slow.

Worth the money. If you can't have a lift or you want something portable these are it.

So . . . How was the stuff you pulled out of the legacy? Lol

I have a 91 thats on its way out (shhhh don't tell it) that I have been looking for a trans at the very least for (down to just 1, 2 and R) but its got 220k on it and those last 20k are at 5k+ rpm so I can get to 65mph like everyone else on the road, lol.

Toss me a PM if you are looking to sell any of that stuff.

Going to be a fun car!!! A local huy did this with his but it was a '04 STi transplant.

My friend and I put the wiring harness back into the Legacy. For the most part it's pretty straight forward but some of the wiring under the dash still needs to be done. My friend is going to bring her 91 Turbo over so I can see how her wiring is ran. I have ordered a bunch of parts for the fuel system and some new avcs solenoids for the 207. Slowly but surely going back together.

Nice man, I had a 92 Legacy back in high school I beat the piss out that car, had over 200k miles when I got rid of it for my WRX. It was a pretty reliable car but I had the 2.2 non turbo version and front wheel drive.
