looking to do an EJ swap on my EA82.

sorry if this gets annoying, but i need a good opinion.

can anyone tell me what i should ask this guy? maybe about certain parts that are required for the swap?

then i will keep everyone that helps notified so you can tell me what to offer.

I think youll need the engine and the wiring harness at the very least...

See how many miles are on the engine, maintenance records would be best (so you know the history of the engine your putting in your car)
hear it run

See if he might take $300 for the car...

Then take what you need, part out the rest and you might make a buck or two

he might be close enough to you to pick this up... Im sure since hes a Subaru guy, that he could tell you about the swap and stuff, 550 for a low mileage engine and a harness thats already pulled is not bad at all.

Take a few tools with you and do a quick compression check on the EJ22. I know this doesnt tell you everything about the condition of the block, but its a good start and it only takes a few minutes.

I am finally getting started on EJ swapping my loyale and I did this 2 weeks ago with a donor car. It was high mileage (210K), but it ran ok, had good compression, and it was very close to my house.

Good luck.

Here you go!

Based on my recent experience with this, it is VERY nice to pull everything from the donor car in the comfort of your own garage.

This is my first EJ swap, so I am not exactly working at lightspeed, but it would not be very fun to grab all of these parts from a pick and pull.

Either one is a great start... I didnt the same thing that was mentioned above... Parted out my legacy to fund my swap... If those wheels on the legacy are wrx wheels... well I might be interested in them if you buy the car.
