Welcome. It's been done I'm sure. Somewhere, someone put the 300HP WRX engine in a GL. I think it snapped 3 axles in it's first 20 miles or something like that.
If you're looking for a good power upgrade, most will probably steer you toward an EJ22 swap for simplicity and reliability. Personally, I wouldn't want much more power than that in a GL without beefing up axles etc to match. If you've got a killer deal on that motor, I'm sure it can/has been done. Adapter plates are offered for sale. Do lots of research!

nstalling it with the bellhousing is similar to all the ej swap posts on here. You will want a crossmember from a turbo car, or cut out a space to allow for the up pilpe. There are examples, it has been done with many different engines.

Could I install a EJ20R into my 89 DL 4 door? I would be installing a Megasquirt on it, and I can get the motor and tranny for cheap.
Which DL series are we talking about here? Sedan?
It's been done by a member of this board.into a Loyale type wagon. He had a lift...dropped the engine cradle enough to fit the two turbos.
