Yeah...any 2000-2009 Legacy/OB or 2002-2011 Imp...and a bunch of Foresters for that matter will fit.

Will a wrx motor for into my impreza 2002 and will the tranny bolt up to the wrx

Impreza transmissions can't handle wrx power. You'd need a whole new wiring harness, transmission, engine, fuel system, and beyond. Budget you could do the swap for 18k. But that's jumping corners


Yup. Cody's ok, but Cookie's not! Happy holidays, all. Ern

I have a forester boxer engine non turbo what other model could I engine swap that in?


Verbs, nouns, adjectives...why bother?
