It will not fit without modification. The SVX 6 is a large long engine. Everything will bolt up, but you would have to relocate the radiator and supports i think. it is also a lot heavier.

I have read that the only sensible thing to do when an svx dumps its trans is to put a wrx 5 speed in it 10 secounds on google rendered this link http://www.smallcar....roduct_id=29919

It is possible. Here is an introduction video that has a ton of videos following it showing how to put one into a 96 Impreza wagon.



And yes it does run now.

EG33 is a fantastic motor, capable of high mileages, very reliable, no big issues, and great power.

it's been stuffed into XT's, there's a few folks running EG33 swapped XT's on subaruxt.com, so they're quite familiar with installing them in other subaru's. two are members here but rarely post. they are regulars on subaruxt.com.

transmissions commonly fail, they need good ATF cooling. but that's a nonissue with a swap.

when the trans gos we put in 4.,44 ratios and a high stall from a 2.2 2wd and that kicks it in the pants the flex plate bolts up the same and wire harness could be cut down it would be very front heavy in a impreza is not a light motor and most of the weight is in front of axle would be a cool westfalia engine

and yes scott, the TQ/flexplate etc will bolt up on the EG33. All it is, is basically 1.5x 2.2L's. Almost like they chopsawed a motor in have, took #3 and #4 cylinders and welded the cases together lol.

Keep me in the loop on your swap, I have a 91 SVX sitting in my driveway that I dont really want to drive anymore, I'd like to see it in my OB with your lift on it :P

The SVX is a relatively rare and unique car. I would almost buy one up as an investment. Replace the trans, and garage the thing for another 20 years, is there any reason these cars wont go up in value and become collectible as they fall off the roads due to trans issues?

An SVX in NICE shape is worth a bit of money, problem is the collector side of things, there is already a bunch of nice expensive ones out there. goto http://www.subaru-sv...forum/index.php and take a look around on there.

I own a early 92 SVX and I'm more tempted to yard out the EG33 and put it in my outback. #1, OB is a hell of a lot lighter than the SVX. #2 5 doors > 3 doors. #3 SVX parted out is worth more than it is sitting complete.
