Engine and gbox conversion

Recommended Posts

I haven't bought my impreza yet but the plan is to buy a classic turbo and an sti engine and box so the closwd deck block can be forged before it goes in. As far as engine codes, which particular gearbox, what ancillaries to get, I haven't a clue. I'm an impreza newbie.

Will you be doing all the work yourself ?

Mine sets me back about 7k so far but I'd say I need about another 3k to tidy the paintwork and buy/map in a bigger turbo .

Which would make it mint with 400+hp

I'd try to find a jdm classic with a knocking engine and use it's Shell as a base car .

they do tend to be much cleaner than the salty underbelly of our uk's especially if recently imported (in the last 5yrs)
