Only in the rear and even then it's only the knuckle and strut itself that are affected. You can't put an AWD strut on a FWD knuckle because they interfere with each other.

Re: Post head gasket frustration

You almost certainly have an electronics issue. The computer is trying to give the engine fuel/spark for conditions that do not match what the reality inside the engine is. Sounds like something is failing when it goes into open loop based on what you said about warm/cold. To get problems this big y...

Re: Will 95-99 doors fit a 93-94

I haven't bolted them on. Just measured. And I don't know if the windows work because they're rolled down and I didn't feel like probing around with a battery and test leads to compare.

Got the doors. Rears will definitively fit. Front needs the body line where the door sheet-metal kicks up around the mirror modified. I haven't tried to install them on anything but the physical shape of both doors is definitely correct for the door opening in a 1st gen body. They were free so I'm j...

Re: Will 95-99 doors fit a 93-94

Well, I'm gonna try it. Probably won't get around to installing anything until at least the summer since all my doors open and close at present. I'll take measurements after I pick them up though. Waiting on the seller to get back to me with the address.

Re: Will 95-99 doors fit a 93-94

Where's the interference point? The body shell didn't change substantiall between 1st and 2nd gen. Looking at pictures maybe the revised design around the point where the A-pillar, fender and door meet might be a problem. https://static.carthrottle.com/workspace/uploads/posts/2016/02/d9067d1e56d5c85...

The timing belt is just standard cogged belt in 30mm (I think, you should measure) width. There's no reason you can't go through the Gates, Goodyear or Dayco catalog, find a belt product line you like and then order up the relevant part number. Cogged belts are sold by a part number that designates ...

Clearly fuel is going missing somewhere that the computer doesn't know about (i.e. somewhere other than the injectors). You've got a rusted or leaking fuel line somewhere.

Re: AWIC pump replacement and Sillicone hose pipes

Another vote for "it's just coolant at ~14psi, use whatever pump you want"

If you must have something that comes from an automotive application then go on Rockauto and look for auxiliary pumps for vans and SUVs with rear heat.

As long as you match the color the Legacy/Outback rear bench is unchanged through '99 (unless the SS got something special that I am unaware of).

Unless the SS got special seats the rear seats up through '99 will be compatible.

Buy a cheap Chinese surface plate and feeler gauge and use that to measure flatness. Even the crappiest surface plate will greatly exceed the flatness requirements for this job.

FWD to AWD swap

Trans is starting to go out in the '93 FWD. I have all the physical stuff I need in order to swap to an AWD trans. I have the AWD transmission control module. What wiring do I need to do to support it? (or if someone could point me in the direction of the relevant wiring diagrams that would help too)

I'm really unfamiliar with what happened to the various platforms after they all diverged from the basic Legacy based floor-pan and suspensions in the mid-'00s When you say "the track would be narrower" you mean narrower than an '06+ STI or narrower than a stock 90s/00s Impreza/Legacy/Outb...

Re: EJ20 Series 1 Timing Kit

I just use the cheap aftermarket kits. These engines are non-interference, easy to work on and the belt pretty much always outlasts the idlers in my experience. I don't see the need to spend 3x as much for peace of mind considering how small the potential inconvenience is.

Re: rear subframe interchange

Welcome to the BBS. You should be able to use a first gen Impreza rear subframe. I don't know of any major differences, but maybe others can comment. The second gen Legacy should also have the rear subframe. As for the AWD components it's a little more complicated. The rear AWD knuckles have the CV...

Re: Fwd problems

AWD struts won't work with FWD rear knuckles. They physically won't bolt up to the knuckles due to interference fitment and have different length strut bodies. That said, it's probably close enough that it's within range of what you can comfortably do with an angle grinder. Both the struts and the ...
