I am willing to do these for your Vanagon or ea-ej swaps. Wiring is stripped, unnecessary items eliminated, important wires tagged and harness is shipped back to you.

For an 90-94 EJ22 $200 includes return shipping. You must supply the ENTIRE harness from a 90-94 Legacy and must not have already attempted to do it yourself. I can give you pointers on how to remove the complete harness from the donor car if you need.

SVX $300 plus $20 shipping lower 48.
02-03 WRX $380 plus $20 shipping. you must obtain the Smallcar.com circuit board to eliminate trouble codes or make the board yourself.

SPFI: $200 including return shipping.

I really appreciate the offer but I dont really want to stock up on em cuz the whole cars worth of parts needs to be the same to really insure it all works.

BUT!!!

One for parts would really come in handy for those times that the connectors are broken on somebody's harness,

AND...

You might as well sell a complete kit to somebody that wants to do a conversion maybe?

Shawn, you are a wise man.:headbang: I am horrible with wiring. I plan on doing the EA to EJ22 swap later on this summer and would love to pay for your expertise. Any suggestions or tricks I should know for pulling a harness from 90-94 Legacy? Thanks

Pull the Left Front fender, dash, AC and heater boxes before attempting to yank the harness. The harness comes thru the car at the firewall in two major places, one is behind the Heat/AC box, the other is the drivers side grommet that is in the corner of the firewall and comes up into the side of the car under the LF fender.

Be patient and gentle with plugs especially if they are directly on the engine. Not all plugs squeeze to open, some have a tab you have to pull UP and then gently pull the plug apart (Ex: The Large 2 or 3 Intake plugs)

Everything must be from the same donor car to insure reliable service but if you break something with a Subaru part number on it PM me and I will try to get you a copy of the compatability list for the item you broke or was broken in the accident. Potential things like: ignitor, Air flow meter, ECU, etc.

Dont forget to grab these off the donor car:
O2 sensor
Evap canister
Entire throttle cable
Alternator
PS Pump if you have PS
AC compressor if you are running AC

Shawn I might have to send three sets to you, because I can't stand messing with wiring.

I will publically answer your PM....

I am not sure how to make the Automatic tranny stuff work flawlessly....heck they can be a PITA in an Outback without doing a converison that includes the 4eat. Im afraid Speed sensors, neutral switches and other similar parts would be too hard to mess with for me.
I will tell you that you are going to want to start with a car that shifts and drives flawless before attempting said conversion, and get any Auto trans issues solved before you yank anything out of the donor car. It would probably be easiest to do this by taking the donor car, removing the dash in pieces, making the car have a jerryrigged setup and cutting out parts as you go until the car still drives normally but lacks the 20-30 pounds of excess wiring the car doesnt need to be drivable and go from there.

Engine alone is a piece of cake. I could get one back to you the same day I receive it if necessary.
Prefer to communicate via email, I am REALLY busy during the day and don't have time for phone tag usually.

I can make the engine run but the tranny I haven't a clue if I can make it work. Have you considered doing a 5 speed manual trans swap?
