  1. Engine Modifications
    I have a 06 wrx, EJ255, my timing belt snapped whilst driving and I now now either a rebuild or a replacement however it is hard to find a wrx of my exact year with a decent engine, would an ej255 from other years be suitable for straight swap?, no wire adapters or aftermarket ECUs I just want a...
  2. Everyday Impreza Talk
    So I've got an 05 N/A impreza wagon and I want to drop an 02 wrx into it. I was wondering if I could leave my 05 rear wiring harness in the car and just get an 02 wrx front harness and ECU or would I need the whole front and rear wrx harness? New to wiring and all that so probably a silly...
  3. Everyday Impreza Talk
    The car i got is a 2008 Subaru WRX. It came with the cheap EJ20 the last owner swapped in. I put in a lot of power mods and a STI 6-speed and now want to put in a real EJ25. A buddy of mine offered to trade his EJ25 out of is 05 base model automatic Legacy. If i was to put in his motor into this...
  4. Engine Modifications
    Long story short, I really didn't like the fact this Beamer boy wanted to race me just because I had a spoiler and ended up blowing my engine not paying attention to boost and oil. I ended up with a spun bearing. It doesn't seem like it would be a good idea to slap a new crank and bearing set in...

  6. Engine Modifications
    Hi, I just bought a really rough, 255k mile, still running 1.8L 1995 Impreza for dumb cheap. I was curious, since its a bit rusty, the clutch/trans/engine are running like theyre old.. Could I buy this other parting WRX wagon from 04 and swap literally everything? Would it take? I wanna know if...

    Looking to do an engine rebuild or swap on my 2016 WRX. Can someone recommend a reputable shop in Lancaster, PA?
  8. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    A 2005 Impreza RS (automatic) with a bad engine is in my area. What engine and transmissions can be easily swapped in? What years WRX or STI, if wrecked, can be bought and used in this RS? I'd basically kind to build up a manual WRX or STI, if possible, in this shell. Thanks!
  9. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So i purchased a 2002 WRX Impreza that was STI swapped and i am trying to figure something out. I went through emissions and the guy said it couldnt connect he said “connection is loose” i mean at most the DLC was just not mounted properly just dangling (Wiring was good). Im thinking it might...

    I'm new to this kind of stuff and am just wondering what are differences between these engines? Am i gonna have to change the wiring? Is everything a direct replacement? Thanks in advanced!
  11. Engine Modifications
    Is it possible, with out too much headache to swap an Ej208 into a 2017 wrx with an sti 6 speed manual transmission? (meaning engine mounts, wiring harness and ecu). Scale from 1-10 possibility
  12. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So I have two wrx's. An 02 with a blown motor, and a 05 with a good motor but I wrecked it. So I swapped the 05 into the 02. The 05 ran great, made like 13psi which was normal for my climate. It was "stage 2" but basically just an intake with a cobb stage 2 tune and a custom hood exit. During...
  13. Transmission & AWD
    I am working on an engine swap project involving a Pontiac Fiero and a Mazda rotary. I need to know if I can remove the center differential from a 2015 WRX 6mt and what The dimensions of it would be.
  14. Maintenance, service, and repair
    To my gearhead buddies: My 2017 WRX spun a bearing just 10,000 miles out(70,XXX) of the manufacturer warranty but I bought a 3rd party full extended warranty so I was covered. I've had to take it to the subaru dealership 5 times now. 1st time: spun bearing, metal all throughout the oil...

    First time poster, First time Subaru owner. First off, I’m active in other forums and I know how annoyed members get, especially moderators, when double postings populate so if this has been addressed, I apologize. I trolled the first 8-10 pages of threads and didn’t find anything pertaining...
  16. Engine Modifications
    Hi there, I’m new to the forum. On my second WRX now. I owned a brand new one, then decided to get an older one to work on and modify without worrying about voiding a warranty. My 08 WRX seems to have bad ringlands, so I’m considering doing a JDM engine swap. Everyone I’ve talked to says this...
  17. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I was downshifting going over a speed bump and my car stalled and died. Couldn’t get her started again and had her towed home. Checked gas, oil, fluids and everything appeared to be in order. Before she died and wouldn’t start again, she had been running routinely and we had just finished our...

    Dear Club WRX; How difficult is installing a 2004 STi engine in a 2004 WRX? The engine in my WRX overheated and is wrecked. Junk yards sell used WRX engines for about $4,000, but they are not easy to come by. A new WRX engine (without turbo or intake or exhaust, etc.) costs about $6,000. Labor...
