what first?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 95 legacy with a 2.2 auto AWD with 133000 miles. What are some common engine swaps? I would like to put a 5 speed tranny in it. I've heard a WRX engine would bolt in. Is this true? What are some easy upgrades for the current engine?

Josh, I haven't read your write up (yet), but does Mudrat's adaptor make it easier to install a 5spd?

Mudrat's adapter is for using EA 5 speeds with EJ motors in an EA car

Josh's writeup is for using EJ 5 speeds with EJ motors in EJ cars

To be completely accurate, John's adapter will allow the use of a D/R 5sp behind an EJ motor in any vehicle.

Being more attuned to old school stuff, I hadn't thought of putting a new gen (awd) 5 spd in when a d/r is an option. What was I thinking?:banghead:
