Ask SubaruStyles about it, I think his wagon started out w/SPFI and it now has an RX drivetrain in it.

you can swap the crossmember from the rx, may as well swap the whole suspensions, since the rx has an exclusive suspension package. you also need to use the rx axles with its tranny to match the spline
as far as the tranny the same crossmember, clutch/flywheel, and driveshaft on the loyale now will fit the rx tranny. the center console is swappable, wire the diff lock switch to the wire for the loyale 4wd button. the 4wd is activated by vacuum on the loyale, and the same system and components work the diff lock on the rx. so all you have to do is connect the tranny to the vac lines and there is a working diff lock. you need to swap the rx shifter over as well, so you will ose the 4wd button shifter, you can use its wire to splice in the diff lock, or just let the old shift knob hang under the seat and use it.
the 4wd lite will still come on and it will represent the diff lock
you will have to swap over the rear diff for the gear, plus you gain lsd. you can use the existing axles so use the best of all 4. you can swap on the disc brakes but i sayt swap the whole trailing arms with the brakes in one piece, and this will have the mounts for the rear sway bar. swap over the rear coils but i think rx and wagon coils are the same in back
