will this work?

I have a 1994 Sub Loyale with no clutch or exhaust....and no papers since I bouhg tit for a woods buggy

I can get a 1992 SUBARU SVX AWD with no motor for cheap.

I k ow it wopn;t be great for power and what not..but i got the full motor running in the loyalle all it needs is a clutch....but if the SVX tranny bolts up....why not?

It won't.

Actually ER33 engines aren't that expensive. Just not a demand for them.

Not worth it.

The SVX tranny would bolt up w/the EJ-EA adapter.
Like John said, an EG33 can be usually had for about 800 or so w/shipping. Right now there are a bunch on E-bay for less.

If emissions is not a big deal, I would look into a ET20TT or something like that to put into the SVX. You get the same power w/less weight. You also have about a foot of space between the engine and the radiator for all sorts of stuff like FMIC or bigger turbos.

It really depends on your how skilled you are at wrenching and wiring.

ah! i wouldn't think about this any more. it would be a significant amount of work. the engine would drop in place (motor mounts would be easy to figure out) and there is plenty of room obviously - the everything else will be all wrong - that's a new gen car (EJ) and old gen engine (EA) so they won't line up at all.

even if it was easier, it would be a bad, bad idea. the SVX is an extremely heavy car, it's a full out luxury touring car. it's not a good fit for an EA82 at all.

the EG33 is a fantastic motor...though some parts are hard to get a hold of for a decent price. but excellent reliability.

an EJ engine would be an easier swap. i'd personally do an EJ22 5 speed swap. but i'm guessing all the computer and wiring stuff would be all wrong...being a 6 cylinder and all.
