Cool build man. I'll be keeping tabs. I'm planning on a v6 swap myself and getting it to pass obdII

Looks like I'll have to start putting my money where my mouth is.

Wow, that's a lot of work, might as well build a kit car at this rate, trying to get a 207 BAR'D.

Why didn't you just pick up an OBDI impreza?

I plan to build my own kit car down the road, but probably not for another 5 years. Gotta buy a house and be all grown up and stuff first....

I already had this shell, and since I have 700+ hours of labor tied up in it to date, to dump it for an OBDI shell would have felt like I'm sending a best friend to slaughter. Further, it's difficult to get OBDI swaps legal in CA as you have to pass them as a Legacy Turbo, which only sold from 94-96 (from what I recall).

Doable, and likely *way* easier than all this nonsense, but not without its own headaches.

Plus, I kind of like her.

^also you may get a OBDI swap past your average Smog tech but if you ever get a State ref ticket you are SOL becuse they will be able to tell that engine doesn't belong there. With the BAR sticker you are good to go. I was able to get a BAR sticker for my version 8 EJ207, passed as a 2002 wrx motor(the 02 WRX ECU runs the version 8 EJ207 no problem). I will need to to this again with my new shell.

I dont even think you'd pass an OBDI as a Legacy Turbo, they were 2.2L SOHC motors.

Well, I stand corrected

All of my energy has gone into the BAR program for this car, as OBDII. There's certainly more info out there I don't know about OBDI swaps

Swap scheduled for the week of Thanksgiving.

What, you thought I was kidding?





I'm 18 hours in and at roughly 50% (edit: yeah... no. Try 18%). The dash is mostly reassembled, and now I'm just working towards getting everything else buttoned up for the most part.

Stay tuned.
