Just brainstorming here.....
Didn't find anything searching.

What would it take to swap an EJ22T into an early model impreza? I would assume that the ECU is different, but would I need anything else like the complete wiring harness, cooling system hookups, different crossmembers, etc?

I'm thinking that maybe I could find an early model AWD impreza with a blown engine, and a legacy turbo that's been totalled, maybe some WRX aftermarket parts, and end up with Franken-Roo, the rally beast.

Your thoughts please.

It can and has been done.

Pick up the latest Sport Compact Car. They have a little ditty in there about swapping a WRX engine into any older Subaru. Some of the info in there might be useful.

Thanks. I might be able to put up with flipping through the pages of Hondas to see that;) .
