Do you want a turbo with your EJ or not? Seriously, that's pretty much the only question that needs answering as it will determine the difficulty of swapping in the best fitting engine.

That and do a search for EA to EJ engine swaps, lots of info out there.

Definitely want a turbo and anything else that can boost the horses...have been told about some engines being too strong and may mess up the tranny.

Honestly some common sense is in order with the trans but I think if you don't flog it with the diff locked or in 1st gear I think you will be ok for at least a full EJ20 swap. Thats what I would put in...an ej20 from an early wrx.
