Did the swap in late 2005

Body: 1988 DL
Engine: 1991 2.2, replaced with unspecified 90-94 JDM low miler when the engine got fraked (turns out it was only an idler pully and it now resides in a friends sisters legacy with around 245k on it)
Tranny GL 1.59 low range, standard EA-82 fare.
Susp: Impreza/XT-6 under a PK-Ozified 3 inch lift
Wheels/Tires: 14 inch steelies from an Impreza W/27 inch SSR swampers.


As a heads up, the offset from the impreza tires with impreza struts is not so yummy with the bottom of the spring pearch. Its an interference fit, and even with it notched and rewelded it rubbed above 75mph on bald SSR's. (so if anyone has a set of impreza coilovers that they want to get rid of cheap, even ebay specials, i'm all ears)

My latest creation
Body: The Cheese wedge, '89 XT-6
Engine: '03 Legacy 3.0 H6
Trans: 2005 STi 6 speed manual 3.9 fd awd cable
Suspension: Lowered stock XT-6 on KYBs IIRC
Wheels: '05 Legacy GT 17"s
Other: I converted the FailWD to awd due to the number of transmission I broke. Seems the box didn't care for twice the power, kept breaking the diffs. Soon to be supercharged...

Chassis: 1983 GL wagon 4wd 307,000 miles

Transmission: 1992 loyale 5sp dual-range 4wd (JDM, >35k), with LSD rear diff 3.7 final (from 89 RX).
Flywheel from XT-6, clutch disc from EA82 (new), pressure plate from EA82(new), T.O. bearing from EA82. (had to grind a little on the inside of the bell housing for bigger flywheel)

Engine: JDM 1984 GL 1800 from automatic car
(latest and highest cam , and strongest valve springs made stock ever),
revs to 6500rpm smooth, still actually pulls at 5200rpm, intsead of the USDM 4200rpm. advances father than USDM, too. :)

Brakes: front from EA82 (vented), rear from turbo with calipers.

This car is my baby, it's an 1983 GL that will do 120 mph, NOT JOKING! Don't worry I have new suspension (all bushings), and new brakes.
The 3.7 final drive ratio, and the fast motor, were the keys.
Can you say "sleeper" ?
I've had alot people tell me I should get a new car. :lol:
What, so the cops will see me first? :lol:


Sounds like a neat car, but not an EJ-swap...so really doesn't belong here.

In a word yes, the second turbo won't clear the master cylinder, so you'd have to switch to a single turbo, unless you find a right hand drive brat.

Everything went pretty smoothly, I only had to extend the power steering lines a little to make it fit from the pump to the hard lines in the last pic. All the other PS lines were bent enough out of the way to make them not hit anything. I also had some port and polish work done to the heads.
