Short answer: No

Long answer: If you really wanted to, yes, but you'll basically need a whole donor front clip or car. Just swapping the turbo to your block isn't a reliable solution as your engine is 9.5:1 comp, and the turbo is 7.7:1. Different pistons. Different heads, and different intake. Not to mention the entire wireing harness for the engine and the computer for it....

As for seats - swap anyting you like - just have to weld up your car's mounting rails. I've seen anything from legacy, to toyota MR2, to izuzu. XT and XT6 are possible too, but consider that there are LOTS of seats out there besides Subaru's.

Still need the entire wireing harness and computer - will also have to fab a new exhaust as it may not come with the downpipe. It will phisically fit in the car - but so would an EJ22, and for the cost of the EJ22 + adaptor plate and drilled flywheel you would get a decent 135 HP instead of the rather wimpy 115 HP of the EA82T. Plus a decent used EJ22 would cost less than a JDM EA82T and all the wireing.

Yes - the mount holes in the cross member need to be slotted about 3/4" wider. Easily done with a file or dremel tool. Other than that, it's pretty simple..... not any harder than converting to a turbo would be anyway. Mostly wireing.

First swap - expect to be out a car for at least 2 weeks to a month.

Radiator in your car should work fine - as long as it's in good shape. EJ22 works fine with EA series radiators.

Heh - good luck finding one. But yes - same as swapping any other EJ into an EA chassis. BTW - they are only 165 HP stock. Would be easier to find a JDM WRX front clip and put that in ~280 HP.

I've always thought a nice swap would be the early JDM EJ20 - it was 150 HP with no turbo.
