  8. Swaps/conversions
    I've got a MY98 RS Coupe and a 2003 WRX with a good ECU, harness, and transmission. Finding a motor's been the very hard part, as in my area (NW Montana), I've had little to no luck within a reasonable radius finding an engine. I've considered going the JDM route, although all of the different...
