Someone in my area is selling a JDM EJ20 engine in perfect condition with the wiring harness and all engine accessories. I have wanted to have a second engine available to do a swap at some point down the road. Does anyone have any comment about the engine itself and also about mounting it to the 901 trans (if possible) and how much fabrication would be required to get that puppy in there.... it came off of a 97 legacy

Thanks!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Good little engine. Why not use a Subie transaxle too? The 901 is the weak link in the equation. Also, the adapter will run $1k, that money could be spent on other things.

Stay on target red 5.

How is that suspension coming along?

1.7 running?

Body work?

Ha, red 5, I like it!

The suspension is getting there, The whole front crossmember is off, as well as the struts. I am going to be picking up a friends refurbished crossmember and control arms this weekend hopefully. I also made a large order with PMB for some new parts. I have attached a pic of the invoice. cant wait for those to come in.

Also order a number of other things:
Momo steering wheel/Momo hub adapter
turbo tie rod kit
.009 distributor and wires to spark plugs, and new spark plugs as well
webber 40 IDF rebuild kit
a couple of relays

I think thats all.... OH ya! i also picked up a new fiberglass front end and fiberglass rear decklid with a 7" spoiler!

I also just bought my new tires, Kuhmo Ecsta ES (205/50/15) cant wait to mount those sticky rubbers!

Might be installing the new gas tank this weekend...cant say for certain though.

Dustin, i see you live in Woodland hills, i currently live in woodland hills at topanga and victory and have seen a black 914 a couple of times on my way to work... is that you!??

Nope. My car is white.

You do live close to me. I'm at Platt and Valley Circle.
