anyone around northeast pa ever swap one into an L before?

im planning on doing alot of research before i start anything, but i could use alot of help with the wiring...and just any other kind of common sense knowledge

this was kinda spontaneous, i've never really looked into wrx engines before


thanks

musta got a deal... Its a pretty cake swap if you use the new gen driveline as well... You'll need a custom driveshaft and then there is the wiring... I don't have a WRX motor, but I do have a '00 LGT 2.5 SOHC and it was mostly cake.

Is this going into your Impreza you've got under vehicles?

See you might be confusing people by just calling it an L because thats the official Subaru series identification for the ea82 cars.

I hope you got the wiring with it, or plan of doing a full standalone engine management system. The ej22 trans will hold up to the power level at stock pretty well as long as you don't abuse the snot out of it. But your main worries will be wiring, engine crossmember(you'll need one with the scallop for the up pipe), and exhaust.

Sounds like you've got a game plan. Thats always the best place to start. I would highly recommend getting the FSM for your car, and for the year wrx that the motor came from. That will make the wiring go smother, once you learn to read it.
