Default SVX Built WRX swap

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.

Keeping an eye on this one for sure! Always had a soft spot for the SVX. We're really excited to see this come together!

I think I like where this is heading! I like seeing something different for a change. Good luck with the build, and post lots of pics!

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

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.
If you want to see this project in more detail and see more updates go to my Instagram @rex_mixsvx.

thanks for all the support, I would have been happy to fix this h6 up if I didn't already have a built ej.

Big developments, dropped the original h6 and transmission.

Im probably just gonna sell it soon. I kinda wanna keep it for a later build, but I don't have the storage space. If anyone is interested in purchasing a running Eg33 with trans and wiring, ill make a classified on here.

As a fellow SVX enthusiast and owner, I approve of this build. Too many of them are ripped apart due to the rarity and desirability of the motor making it harder for someone like me to find parts. The SVX is such a cool platform and the Achilles heel of the EG33 is the TPS which cannot be sourced anywhere. I'm happy to see this SVX get WRX bits. If you were closer, I'd buy that EG33 in a heart beat.

I'm sorry to hear that, almost everything out of the car is for sale, the motor, trans, rear diff, hubs...
Im ready to sell the parts.

Mocked up the wrx trans tunnel in the Svx to enable me to fit the wrx interior parts
