Suby Engine swap Help

Postby Geoff_B » Tue May 13, 2008 4:52 pm

Have U/S engine in 1992 Subaru Sportswagon. Trans and rest of car are good and I need a cheap daily runner. One option is to reco the 1800 (exy). Other possibility is a secondhand Subaru unit out of almost anything but a WRX, and no F.I. (Understand the F.I. electrics are too problematic) It needs to be simple and easy to do for a 57 y.o. mechanical dufus and a 20yo apprentice who knows everything. Has any-one done a 2L or a 2.2L into a sportswagon? Any Ideas or advice? (& No buying a serious 4WD is not considered good advice!)
