I'm a new member as of a few mins ago... I have a 2003 bugeye WRX wagon.
A few months ago, one of my idler pulleys for my timing belt froze up, causing the the belt to break, So now i'm trying to swap the engine out. It currently has a JDM EJ20, and 5 speed manual tranny. I''m sure it wasn't the fastest WRX on the road, but I loved driving it, so after the swap, it needs to be as good if not better than before... (I have the numbers off the block, but haven't found a site to reference) Number is: B6754xx. Every AVCS 2.0 seems to be Cxxxxxx. Is this accurate or am i just assuming?
I suppose my main question is, how do i determine if my current engine has avcs, if it doesn't, can i swap one with avcs in its place, and what else would be involved if i do so? I really need the new engine to simply fit right into place, don't have tools or know-how to do too much mod. right now
Sorry for the newbie questions, but I'd really appreciate any and all help. Thanks
