So get this, you'll either hate it or love it. I have begun to wrx swap a scrap svx. I have already swapped the rear suspension for all adjustable parts for a wrx including the rear hubs and I have put a full wrx fuel system in too. Both the wrx and svx chassis are completely stripped, the svx is a bout to get wired. The main reason for this tedious project; I have a totaled but running wrx with a built sti motor and spec b trans... the svx is a cool car, low and weird, but the drivetrain has always been its downfall.

So let's talk about the piston slapper im putting in this buttdragging pocket rocket

The Ej25 motor comes from a Gd wrx that had extensive modification



Mainly the motor has the common upgrades(el headers, tgv deletes...), and a ported vf48 turbo



The motor is a Iag stage 1 ej257 shortblock with ej255 heads

It was not protuned but I'm guessing around 300whp at 18psi, after a tune I am hoping for 340 on 93oct and 370 on e85

Update, I have removed the front end of the car to further remove the original wiring harness and other unnecessary accessories. also, relocated the wing to make it a wang.

SVX owner watching with great interest...
You probably know about the SVX forum. Lots of questions answered there if you run into anything.
Good luck!
