Motor Swap Questions
Hello I'm very new here, like 2 hours new... haha. I've been searching around so far kinda glancing through some threads that look like they are what I'm looking for. Problem is, I'm not a Subaru guy, as in I don't really know much about them. Although I have always liked them I think they look cool and sound cool and have always kinda wanted one.
So here's my question:
I am looking at a 2002 Impreza 2.5RS (automatic) The person selling says the motor is garbage, it over heated or something like that so I was thinking a motor swap would be the easiest and cheapest route to getting it running.
Now like I said I really don't know anything about them because this is kind of spur of the moment thing, but the end result of what I am looking for is a nice daily driver with some nice power. I was thinking about maybe swapping in a stock 2.0L wrx motor (with turbo) in there, but I don't know if the tranny would mate up with the 2.0L. Then I came across something about a hybrid motor, 2.5Lblock with 2.0L heads.
Like I said, I'm new and very open to suggestions on how to make this easy. I would like to have decent power for a daily driver as cheap as possible. Please spare no details on what I'm going to need, ie ecu/wiring harness and motor/turbo stuff. I have access to all tools necessary and am fully capable of doing this kind of stuff. I would just like to be pointed in a good direction with some ideas of what I should get.
I posted in the cyl head and shortblock section, but I figured you guys would know a lot about it in this section as well. Any and all help appreciated!
sorry moderators if I am breaking the rules I am just looking for the knowledge base and wasn't sure if I should post in this or the other section, move/delete the thread accordingly if you want.
