    I have a 2008 Subaru forester automatic and I've been looking into getting a 2.0L EJ20Y with a manual transmission and swapping my engine because the body of the car is in nice condition and it seems to be a fun and cheap way of getting an overall better car. I was wondering what is the best way...

    So I have a 93 1.8 that I switched out with a 2.2 that I believe is from 97 out of a legacy. I’ve read the forums saying keep my intake off the 1.8 which I did. I have the motor in the car, it has spark and fuel pressure and oil pressure and everything is plugged in. When I turn it over it has a...

    Hello, all! I have read the swap guide and, made obvious by the title, I had a question about doing an 08+ 6-speed swap. I plan to use a GD driveshaft, but the guide said you couldn't use 08+ axles because they're too long. however, I also plan on buying a wrc body kit, so I would love to have...

    Hey guys! I just purchased JDM 04-07 STI seats for my USDM GC 2.5rs. I attempted to fit the JDM passenger seat (belt buckle on the right; no height adjuster) to my driver's side, but the bolstering spots do not light up. I'm assuming I will run into the same issue attempting to fit the JDM...
