For those of you familiar with the newer wrx 2.0l motors and older subarus- would it be possible to place a newer wrx or even a wrx sti motor into a 1993 legacy wagon? The car I have now is auto, but it would probably be better to start with a manual - but then again this may be complete madness and stupidity.?

IT CAN BE and has been done.


search in the subaru conversions forum

expect to spend no less than $5,000 to do a proper swap

I know someone that put a 2.0L turbo wrx engine into a 97 Legacy GT.

And as SubieGal said... $5K plus to do it up right.
