An engine swap will not make a FWD car into an AWD car. You would have to swap the entire drive train which if possible would be more work than it is worth.

I know that What other subaru drivetrain would you use


I would not spend the money or time to swap drive trains on a 20 year old FWD Subaru.

Do it any questions ask me find a donor car 4wd fuel tank is different than 2wd I've done these conversions heaps turn out great too
