help/advice needed


Recommended Posts

hi all
i have a 2002 impreza wxr that blew the big ends. i bought a 1998 type r sti engine to stick back in the hole but discovred today that the bolt holes for the inlet manifold are different ?
does anyone know if there is a way i can get around this ? the inlet manifold that goes with the car has sensors on it that the older classics didnt have and am not sure if i can get away with just putting a classic manifold on it ? 
any advice and help much appreciated as its currently stuck on the lift with no engine 
thanks !

As far as I'm aware you need a type r/ra manifold to house the fifth injector!

the fifth injector ? 
the actual inlet bolt holes are completly different from the inlet i have.

on the engine i bought the bolt holes are in a strait line (version 1-2) where as on my inlet the bolt holes are staggred ?

They changed the shape of the inlet on new age engines,

If you get a new age inlet to fit you should be able to make it work but need some electronic craftsmanship as well

I've only ever dealt with v1 92 to v4 98 and they all run the same "inline stud patterns" on the inlets .

I think you can buy "inlet manifold phase adapters " to convert the early classic phase 1 &1.5 head stud patterns to take a newage inlet manifold.

If the coil pack is in the middle of the inlet on the donor engine it's classed as a "v3/v4 phase 1.5 " set up . I know After 98 the classics run a" phase 2" inlet manifold set up with a different stud pattern but I'm unsure if the newage run the same phase 2 stud patterns as the late classics.

Hopefully a bit of a google for ....

Phase 1.5 v4 impreza classic newage inlet conversion or phase 1.5 to newage inlet stud pattern adapters .

Might give you a answer but it would obviously be easier to use a newage wrx long engine .

If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊
