I have a 1993 subaru impreza L with the EJ18 motor and im looking to find the best motor swap for my money on this car. i was thinking about the EJ25 swap with EJ22 heads . but im not sure what all this job will need like a wiring harness? would the mount line up on the sub frame and would the transmission be a direct fit? please help, anyone with good advice.

the ej25 block with ej22 heads is a pretty good idea.

it will bolt in and should run fine.

just use the ej18 intake manifold with the wiring attached.

plug and play, but you will need? to do the EGR work around.

all ej18s have EGR.


an easier swap is an ej22 with the ej18 intake.

plug and play, but you will need? to do the EGR work around.

all ej18s have EGR.


if you are thinking turbo,

you are better off starting with a different car.

you can do it, if you have the time and money,

but why.?

just buy a legacy, 90 - 94, with a factory turbo.

it will cost, but it will probably be cheaper.
