93 turbo legacy

I would swap a Legacy Turbo 5MT into it. A WRX tranny will fit, but I'm inclined to say the Turbo tranny is slightly stronger. Not much, but enough to consider it...
Then you can leave the stock rear diff, since your ratios will match, if you swap in WRX tranny, you might need rear diff too.
A WRX intake manifold will not fit, as is the current consensus. Not only is there no place to mount a coilpack on a WRX manifold, as WRX's are coil-on-plug, but the mounting points on the head are too different.
I do believe WRX exhaust will fit though.
But come over on the forum aforementioned. TONS of good info over there.

I'm looking at a 93 turbo legacy, 130k, with a burned out auto tranny, i've got a few questions for ya'll, ok. I'm wanting to put a wrx 5 speed in the car, 1.Will it bolt up? 2.Whould i buy a flywheel and clutch for the leg or wrx? 3. if i could use either which would be best? 4. Will I need the rear differential from the wrx as well? 5. Where would be the best place to find a wrx intake manifold so i can use the top mount intercooler with the set up? 6. Will all the aftermarket wrx headers, and I.C. piping work or will i need to look elsewhere for that stuff too? and if i've missed anything essentail for this swap please bring it to my attention. thanks
the wrx 5spd will bolt up.....however you will run into diff ratio problems. The WRX uses a 1:1.1 stepper reduction. So you would need the rear diff as well from the WRX.
The t-leg & wrx trans are pretty much identical. Pretty sure they use the same clutch.
The intake manifold won't work as mentioned....the coil pack is trivial. The bolt pattern for the manifold to heads is different, not to mention the WRX has tumble valve generators, that complicate the mix more. You can squeeze in a WRX intercooler, it's been done.
Check out the bbs, as subyluvr mentioned. Lots of info over there.

Hey pacific_import_auto, do you have any pics of your car and engine? I'm very interested in seeing your car. Are you on http://bbs.legacycentral.org ?
