Re: BC Racing Coilovers

100%. But don't take my word - Google. I don't know much about spacers, so can't comment and not clear on what you're doing - '95-'99 spacers won't fit the rears on any of your Subies in your Sig. - '93, '93, '94. And if swapping springs, top hats must match the springs as some are tapered at top (s...

Re: Outback Struts on a 93 Legacy

OB struts will bolt-up fine on front; rear top hats/strut mount bolt pattern is different. If you swap top hats you'd need to confirm the springs match as they were tapered in there somewhere. It's been done often enough that you can find (better) specifics on a Google search and other Subie sites. ...

Rear top hat/strut mount bolt pattern changed after GC/'01 (was the same as the '90-'94 Legacy).

Re: Intake manifold questions.

I'm sure the manifold mount is different... search online for pics. And getting those fuel lines to fit may be painful. And it's easier to replace the injectors IN THE rails - than the injectors individually, if go looking for another used set.

WTB: Turbo Check valve - IAC - Intake manifold - GOT IT.

Edit. I thought I had one and finally came across it last night. It looks just like the Toyota one and doesn't have the 'locating' nub, bump, etc. like the NA version below. This part with the 'flap' that seals during boost - kinda like this (from a Toyota 2jzgte - 25748-88400): https://i.imgur.com/...

Side-feeds are a PITA but can be removed - intact. Spray some WD-40 around them as you work on them to get 'em out...slow and deliberate.

You have no CEL, correct? If you do what are the current, today, codes - not those from a week ago>>> not to be an ARSE but online forum posters are notorious for stating 'Yeah, my CEL's been on for a year and it's nothing important', which isn't helpful. :-)

Re: Intake manifold questions.

Unlikely on the swap as those TOP feeds use a different setup vs. the side-feed of the <'99 Subarus....but there may be adapters fit the IM? On the early USDM (US domestic market) WRX they'd leak under the IM where the rubber hoses connect to the hard lines. I'm getting old, but seems that yours are...

Re: EJ20 Series 1 Timing Kit

Older post, but everything I've read is that the EJ25D kits will work on the EJ20G.

And as the EJ20G is a DOHC interference, the valves can interfere.

There's also a thread on here devoted to the differences. It's ancient but may be useful: viewtopic.php?t=38247

Re: lightweight 14" for a 1990 wagon?

HI, The offset of the wheels will not be different front to back for your model - this is incorrect: "the 90's had 50 upfront and 55 in the back". Unless someone put mis-matched wheels on your car. The 15" wheels will fit, if they're a stock '95 Subaru 5x100 bolt pattern - but the tir...

Hi, Edit: All the below is based on USA info . I'm not that familiar with Subarus from other countries. The top of the transmission bellhousing will have an ID tag (or should) that starts with TZxxxxxxx. This can be used to Identify the transmission. Like this: http://www.subaru-svx.net/photos/files...

HI, Kind of a tangent, but FWIW, you CAN swap in any 4EAT from '90-'98, based on what I've read and your original TCU/TCM will run it - and it'll plug-in on the bellhousing harness (still might want the TCU w/the Trans). If you didn't know, the '95-'98 2.2 were 4.11 FD ratio; '96-'98 were 4.44 (OB, ...

The SVX has the right-angled hard line that might work better with a turbo install.
