Replacing an EA82 with and EJ20
Posted 15 July 2002 - 06:14 PM
I got a 1992 Subaru L Series Wagon, with the standard EA82 engine in it. What I am hoping to do within the next twelve months is replace it with an EJ20 (WRX engine), and I am just trying to find out what I need, how much it will cost and how I am going to get it all done. I have heard about a few other people who have done it, and also guys that are doing it. If anyone knows anything of relevance let me know! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can get hold of a front cut, they are A$4950 to get to my doorstep. What's the turbo cross member, and are they expensive? Basically I am aiming to learn as much as I can over the next 6-12 months, then think about actually doing this once I have saved some cash.
What kinds of things are involved in 'connecting' the new engine?

alternatively there are people out there making ea/ej series adaptor plates for the bell housing mounting bolts...

The person making the EA to EJ adapter has been working on it for years and doesn't seem any closer then he did a years ago.
Best bet it to get with Brett from Back Yard Boys (BYB) and RXTurbo, they can help you a lot.

Lots of silly little things need fabrication too. The loyale shifter support doesn't bolt up in any way "stock" and the WRX one only kinda works since its not only still too long, but the rear body mount is different.
Pedals need to be out of a LHD suabru with a hydraulic clutch. This basicly limits you to buying a pedal box out of a legacy turbo or a EJ-25 powered car.
