I don't really know. My understanding is that the 1200 cc in-line three-cylinder Justy motor was a Suzuki designed and built unit that was also used in the Suzuki built GEO Metro ? One would think that the best bet would be to purchase re-built parts as needed from Suzuki and build your motor up with known good components. Taking a chance on something from another used car or a junk yard could prove to be something of a hit or miss type of deal.

For what its worth, my sister was the first in our family to acquire a Subaru, and it was a 4WD Justy GL.. I loved that car.

The motor in the Justy is not a Suzuki motor. From what I understand Subaru got basic plans for the car from Suzuki and then redesigned everything and built the car in there own factory.

I picked up a motor for about 100 bucks so they are pretty cheap the problem is finding one.

STi swaps have been done but they require vast amounts of money and fabrication.

My opinion is unless this Justy is dirt cheap don't buy it I've seen running examples for under 500 bucks.

That being said they are amazingly fun cars, I rallyx and ice race mine and we have more fun with it than anyone else out there.

What year Justy are you looking at? I think (although I could be wrong) that there were two motors - a carburated (87-88?) and a fuel injected (89-95). The earlier carb motor is probably almost impossible to get parts for. Getting parts for the FI motor will be hard but not impossible. I liked the Justy's but they tended to be thought of as "throw away" cars, so it's rare to find one in decent shape. I'd love to a have a 4WD four door Justy. Good luck.

In the United States, only the Japanese manufactured models were sold and only from 1987 to 1994. The Justy received 4WD in 1988, and all models were equipped with Multi Port Fuel Injection late in 1992. The Subaru Justy was the last carbureted car sold in the United Kingdom, as well as the United States. A four-door model was also available from 1991 to 1994. I am currently looking for one and have found one but it needs a new back axel which is like 300 bucks and the 4wd linkage needs work so i'll prob ask for a price drop. For now i want to just get it working so i can save on gas. My stage 2 wrx sucks up gas hahaha but I love it. Eventually i want to throw a jdm ver 8 motor, trans, aem ecu, shorter driver shaft (for the justy) as well as all the expensive fab work to make the car more rigid. But that prob won't happen for a while. Also the 2 door model weighs only 1845 curb weight compared to the 2045 lbs of the four door. Less weight = faster car and better gas
