  1. Engine Modifications
    Hey guys! So I picked up an EJ205 from a 2003 WRX on FB Marketplace and I needed a few parts before I swap it into my Forester (EJ253). My questions are: Would there be issues with using the 253 ECU and/or bulkhead wiring harness with the 205? Is a 2002 WRX ECU (ECU Sticker Label "V2")...
  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. Engine Modifications
    Hey all, need help and advice with my swap from a 2005 NA impreza to an ej205 from a 2002 wrx. Obviously the ecu's have different plugs and im not too sure how to get the 2002 wrx ecu to plug in, i dont really want to change the whole body harness for it. But yeah any advice is appreciated...
  4. Builds
    Alright, I'm doing research before actually getting into doing this build I have in my head. Here's my hairbrained idea: Take a totaled '16 or newer WRX and put the entire driveline into my '03 Ford Ranger. Why? I don't think it's been done before. How? That's why I'm here, to collect info...
  5. Builds
    Ended up with an untitled 09 wrx. Been dealing with trying to get a title from the last owner for months n I’m bout over it. Thinking about buying a bugeye and doing a complete swap. Only thing I’m worried about is the ECU, or the wiring more generally because this is my first swap. Fab work...
  6. Interior Mods
    Okay, first things first, is my steering wheel stock or not? It's definitely Subaru OEM, but between a few facebook groups, NASIOC, and here, it's about 50/50 on whether or not this wheel came stock on 04-05 wagons. Some say it's from a Forester, Outback, etc. while some say several wheels were...
  7. Transmission & AWD
    I'm having a bit of trouble clarifying how compatible these cars are (VA chassis) in this area. I'm wondering what parts are necessary in the swap for me to get an STI transmission, center diff, and front diff (no rear diff) on my WRX. Why? I'm thinking about my long-term plans, and I think I'd...

  10. Engine Modifications
    So this weekend I did the vf52 swap. I also installed Cobb turbo inlet, Cobb sf intake, and Rev9 catless DP. I’m going to run the TP 2.52 tune. The problem is, I think the vf52 that I bought (rev9) sits lower somehow in the engine bay, and the AVO top mount I’m trying to install is significantly...
