both cars are not jdm, and both are automatic.so you want to swap your EJ221 for some kind of JDM 2.0.
you would need like the whole JDM car sitting there. so you could have ALL the parts major and minor to transfer, intake through exhaust, all wiring, and maybe the trans / axles.
...and if working by yourself it may take 6-8 months.
and you would probably have to custom make a cross member,...
this vs. just finding another goodie EJ221,...or EJ18 and putting it in there. then you find a turbo car that makes you happy, and sell the impreza outback sport to some that will love it. (with its frugal fuel consumption, and reliability).
noturbo....would swap in with relatively small changes
that's not even small. that's easy compared to the electrical work involved in a turbo swap.no changes in transmission, drive train that kinda thing
doesn't exist. Some people think that because it has a hood scoop, which a 99 GT does, that means it's a turbo - if you were told that then it's not true.a 2.0l turbo from a 99 legacy gt
if this is canada, there are all kinds of limited production or customized JDM cars imported there used whole,....that you can't take south of the boarder and plate in the states. (so either a factory car,...or some ricer did drop a WRX engine in a 99 legacy).Can't be. There was no 2.0 turbo engine in a 1999 Legacy.
you would be correct I am in canada, its a salvage 99 legacy from what I've read/seen its a 2.0 turboif this is canada, there are all kinds of limited production or customized JDM cars imported there used whole,....that you can't take south of the boarder and plate in the states. (so either a factory car,...or some ricer did drop a WRX engine in a 99 legacy).
I was and am kind of of the thought this maybe one of them, and its been plated a used there for a few years. ...but I don't read much about 20 year old subaru turbos. (...which I could only drop into a 1995 and earlier legally).
Might have to put you down as kinda comedic. :wink2: I was being a bit on the sarcastic side with my first post as a feeler for what you intend. Modifying cars is never a small chore. Whether its a Subaru, Nissan, Audi or any car made after 1982 really. It involves time, patience and a lot of work. But if you have a vision for what you want out of the car, and are willing to go through the process of building it, then go for it. People thought I was nuts to boost my VDC, but I had an idea that wouldn't go away, stayed at the back of my mind creeping up every once in a while that told me it was possible to boost a high compression engine without internal changes and the boxer was the one to do it to. Almost 30k miles later and its still running strong, no oil consumption greater than it was prior, no temperature issues and no broken parts. :grin2:no changes in transmission, drive train that kinda thing.
