My wifes wrx has a mitsubishi turbo, but no an evo engine will not bolt right in.. lol
Some auto manufacturers are also part suppliers for other companies, that is why climate control systems and electric window systems will look the same between to different car manufacturers.

There are a lot of similarities between some Nissan and Subaru parts. My Hawk front brake pads mentioned Nissan on the slip when I purchased them.

I noticed the same thing with the power mirror control and power window controls and thought it was odd. But then again when when there are Saabarus, Eagle Talons, and Dodge Stealths, the idea of companies working together doesn't seem too strange.

Your rear LSD is similar to the Silvia's, Nissan's 4 pots and 2 pots out of the 300zx TT will fit on your impreza.

Nissan makes lots of parts for other companies, like mitsubishi makes just about every damn ingnition you find on an atv (but mine), haha. Nissan made lots of electrical stuff, i see em all the time at the shop, ive even seen the mitsu star in the new legacys... =)

Yeah Subaru uses Nissan electronics/switches/etc, that's why Subaru's hate Bosch shit just like my 240sx does! :lol:

Slightly old news. :D

But yes, there's several Nissan parts, strewn about in the cars. The RS also had a Mitsubishi alternator.

When I changed out my belts, I noticed they were Mitsubishi, too. And that was from a Subaru dealer... :confused:
