1.5 Subaru Impreza R Engine Swap
Looking at getting a 1.5 Subaru Imprezza R Wagon but
looking to have a beefy engine in it compared to the 1.5 just
looking for suggestions really before I purchase one.
There are no practical options. Buy a car with a bigger engine if that is what you want.
Look at swapping for a used EJ205 motor or EJ25 it should bolt right in. You’ll need harnesses and ECU and other stuff to make it work.
...and exhaust headers. Not sure I'd invest that much in a 13 yr old carcass unless it's pristine and outside the rust belt. Have fun and be patient. Ern TSG/B
