Default Swap gone wrong

I purchased a 2001 Impreza RS with a 2004 WRX swap already started. There is something wrong with the wiring, because the engine light is on, and says that the cylinders 1 and 3 misfire, then I'll get a code down the line saying cylinder 2 and 4 misfire. When I unplug the MAF sensor, the car runs better and doesn't bog down, where as when I have it plugged in, the car loses almost all power, no spool, and has a terrible misfire. I've replaced the MAF, IACV, Oil Breather cover on the right side valve cover, wastegate actuator, PCV, and I noticed I have a large amount of gas getting in the oil with the misfire and loss of power. I'm hoping this information can possibly make it so you can come up with some ideas of what I can look for.

Can you point me in the right direction as to how to wire those with 12 vdc power thanks. I'm stuck in the water with a conversion I'm doing 00RS w/ 02 wrx motor swap.

I want to swap soon, I found an engine and trans for sale that I might pick up soon. This looks absolutely terrifying. I WANT to do the swap, but I also don't want to mess anything up horribly.

I've just completed the leg work of this swap on my own car but my injectors are only getting 6V rather than 12. Is this the result of a bad ground?

Sounds like you have more reading to do. You can swap other turbo model subaru's into your RS ie wrx, sti, and legacy gt's. Motor, trans, rear dif, matching axles, complete wire harness with ecu, iWire service if you need to merge wire harnesses, fuel pump regulator, and ALL ENGINE BAY MOTOR SENSORS is the majors that you will need. Good luck with that swap you should post a conversion thread for that when you are done.

The 2005 drivetrain you have will work just fine. Do you have just the drivetrain or the whole car? You'll need the rest of the stuff that nasiocjunkie mentioned as well.

Default 01 RS to 02 WRX Swap

I have been studying your conversion project that you had performed several years ago and I really appreciate the work you did!

I apologize in advance if I have missed some things on your forum that could answer my question below.

Background: I currently own a 2001 2.5RS 2 door manual and came upon a wrecked 2002 WRX automatic car (complete) with only cosmetic damage.

Question: I'm just about done taking out the entire harness from the WRX and about to begin removing the harness from the RSóany suggestions as to how to merge an automatic WRX wire harness to a manual RS harness?

I plan to use my current RS manual transmission with an upgraded clutch to bolt onto the WRX motor.
