ej22 to ej18 swap
Posted 25 October 2009 - 02:16 PM
my car is a 1990 legacy ls with the 2.2
and the motor im getting is from an auto wrecking yard in town which is a '93-'96 ej18. i guess they lost the paperwork on the motor, but it has good compression.
my question is... is everything just going to hook up? i would like to just do this in a day, but im not sure if there are any suprises in store.
thanks for the imput.

its easier and a whole lot cheaper than trying to make a EJ18 work.

my question was asking if the 18 will just drop in...

EJ18 won't have a knock sensor, but the hole and threads will be there!
It's kind of a silly fix though, a 15+ year old motor is highly likely to leak. It's just a matter of time for old seals, particularly having sat in yard or inoperable vehicle for X years.
