I'm pretty sure you need the crossmember to mount the trans as well. The engine is old, and so are the cars they come out of. So according to this, the swap would work and all I would really need to do once its dropped in is to rewire it, bolt together, and then shim the turbo crossmember and lenghten the exhaust so everything fits? Re: tach, talk to chux about where he got his 4 to 6 cylinder signal modulators. I know that I will have to use my 95 intake manifold and wiring if I wish to equip the egr back into the motor because the 98 manifold isn't tapped for it. Ok, So I have a 95 Lego with an automatic trans And I hate it. Also, the highway provides hundreds of thousands of un-shifted miles. Let us know what is working, what isn't working, and what we're missing outright.
The power locks also don't work. I've swapped a car to 5spd, but that was only after reverse failed in the auto. I have not seen it done yet. Drop-in as in the ecu physically fitting in the same location and the body harness likely sharing mounting tabs, yes. If track time is in your future, we also suggest reinforcing the control arm mounts to the frame.
You need the matching rear diff, and possibly the axles. Just swap everything from the donor car to including the whole wiring harness, engine crossmember, etc so there's no surprises. For those of you who are on a rebuild journey and are documenting it, this is the place where you can start your journey, and get help along the way. Also, the transmission crossmember for the legacy may need some modification to fit into the legacy, unless the auto trans crossmember is compatible. Given this known history of major engine problems with the 09 Legacy, I asked Steve Mueller, will VanBortel or Subaru of America make any cost adjustments. The term you're looking for is 'closed deck'.
However, deals are to be had if you know the right people. You have to add o2 sensors, rewire to the ecu and more. I would be really surprised if it did. Compared to cold and homeless. The automatic's wiring is actually backwards. Ok it's finally time for someone to break this down into a sticky. What is your reasoning for not using synthetic? I don't believe that the engine controls can easily be separated from the rest of the bulkhead harness.
It's 2 litres, and generally makes around 160whp stock. You guys have really helped me more than I can express gratitude for via post ha. The controller is found up under the dash. The extra torque might eat that 5-speed for lunch if you're not careful, they do better in the lighter impreza chassis with the H6. Good motors, good turbos, fun out of the box, and inexpensive.
I'm currently researching and pretty much have my 5s swap parts list complete. There are always slight differences between years and body styles, so you should definitely supplement this video with research of your own. Yeah, gotta say the autos seem stupidly dependable. This being said, this motor comes with it's share of disadvantages. I bought the car new and followed all of the dealer maintenance and only had the car serviced at the dealer. Hybrid motors -- Basically, this is what the name says.
Ok I have a 96 legacy and it's an automatic. If they don't match you will run into issues. But auto's have their place. That is what I did to fund my swap. I used the following pages from the factory manuals to decipher and wire up my harness. Check it out if you love Discord. Look it up maybe you'll figure it out.
The biggest advantage of this motor is that it's fairly common in this day and age. Anyone know of pitfalls or potential issues outside of getting my hands on the 6-speed? Honestly, I can't see how you would fare better with a manual transmission. Its a decent tranny but as I have said they have significant bearing failure. As said before, if you know the right people this can be reduced, but look to spend around 7-10k for everything you'd want for a swap. This transmission is stronger than the regular 5 speed Cryo treated gears. Compared to what I'll have by the end of summer.
