So, yes it can be done. And yes it is a lot of work. And yes it is a big pain in the ass

i would say the most difficault part would be the harness swap, making sure you get all the harness, but not more than what you need.
we will have to remove some of the tape and separate some of the wiring, because a lot of the headlight and other wiring will run thru the same channels.
i'll bring my haynes book for reference from the wiring schematics.
i have pulled entire hrnesses from a gl-10 turbo sedan, a carbbed wagon, and a 78 brat. there is a lot between all that is similar, mainly the headlight and underhood wiring.
so with that experience in mind, we should have no trouble isolating the spfi/turbo harnesses.
but the wiring harnesses might be the most time consuming of the operations, amybe we should swap the wiring first, and then the motors., and get the turbo motor into the wagon and running first, before getting spfi into the xt.
or just save the spfi and motor and not put into the xt, if you can never get a title and decide to part it out
myoss feece should be back from florida by next weekend, his hands would help a bunch!

the pipe from behind the y pipe will fit against the turbo down pipe. the only difference between the exhausts is the midpipe between 2wd and 4wd.
my car, used to be turbo, has a carb motor and spfi y pipe, and the y pipe fits against the turbo's mid pipe. so that means a turbo pipe will fit against the spfi midpipe!
jim, josh found a 93 impreza for 100 bucks. all it needs is an axle and its good. super clean and rust free, 150,000 miles!
once that gets fixed, josh is selling the grand am, and thus we will have the xt6!!!!!!!
we can swap the rear disc from the xt to the spfi wagon as well!

the mpfi wiring, im going for it right now. im going to use the computer and only part of the wiring harness. the under dash stuff seems useless to swap, so im hoping my xt computer will work as a engine computer only. my plan is to have my computer in the glove box, i'll let you know if it goes good or if i end up machining a carb adapter for a mpfi manifold.

Have you seen the Miles Fox (GL-10) custom hood scoop yet? It turned out better than I thought it would.... and it looks pimp! If you need to use my saws-all, just ley me know. Peace!
