Hey all, looking for some advice besides the usual nay-sayers that will always offer the usual buy a WRX. This is out of the question unfortunately. As the title suggests I just bought a 2005 Forester EJ20 XT and im looking to engine swap into my daily 2008 Impreza 1.5r Hatchback non turbo. I have both complete running and driving cars and aim to sell the rest of the forester and my 1.5 engine and gearbox to help fund the project as I go. I have space and some tools but will need to hire an engine crane, anything else specialist etc. I do also have connections with friends and a couple local workshops/garages I can quote to help me but i'm still debating just how much of this I want to take in myself. I did study automotive mechanics at college for 3 years but have no real experience with a project of this size. Please let me know any advice you'd have for a first timer and any advisory maintenance I should look into pricing for "while it's out anyway" lol. Would love to find a similar conversion or comparable build that's been done I could use for information but I haven't found much so far on NASIOC, even with the popularity of the hatchback in the USA Cheers in advance guys. Pics of Both cars and the EJ engine should be attached.
Hello everyone, I’m new to subies and I’ll be picking up mine soon I’m getting a 1.5 r hatch as it’ll be my first car :) ive been doing some research but I can’t find a clear answer but I’m wanting to lower the car and I would like to know if there’s any coilovers that’ll fit the 1.5r or if I’m better off saving for air lift? I’ve been looking at tein coilovers and bc racing but they all say they’re for wrx’S and sti’s but I’m not sure if they would fit the standard 1.5 r. Tia :)
