It’s a Subaru Leone 91 model with an EA82 motor. I would like to change the EA82 to a 96 Wrx Motor EJ20G.

The transmission is manual its 4wd selectable that is 4wd high and 4wd low then 2wd,

clutch plates size 9” (inch). Do I require an adapter plate? anyone done it before pics e.t.c

something to help me out.

Here in the states we didn't get WRX's in 96, so you are on your own there.

As for the transmission - IIRC, the 96 JDM WRX is around 280 HP - too much for the EA82 transmission. You'll want the WRX transmission.

These old tranny's are pretty tough. It would entirely depend on how hes going to drive the car. If hes going to not try going 2-4th gear skipping gears and hard downshifts, etc...he may get away with it.

The adapter is needed. The depth of the flywheel and the distance between the engine and trans are what is helped by the combo. The clutch disc sizes are the same outer diameter.

Thats a GREAT engine for a conversion like this. We dont have the luxary of a 2.0 WRX engine with no ODBII diagnostics and its a lot easier to wire up than any of our WRX engines are. Take pictures and let us know how long the trans lasts if you go with the EA tranny. The WRX one would certainly last longer but I dont know that its a HUGE difference.
