Asked by Jan 18, 2017 at 09:40 PM about the 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to ask the smartest person on your forum if a
AVCS engine can be used in a swap on your non-
AVCS engine.  This listing for the engine I bought
said it was a non AVCS like yours but is wrong it
has the AVCS valve.

Ok, I guess Tom is sleeping or riding his Bike, any way yes you can use a AVCS in a non-AVCS motor, the other way around you would need to add a few cam sensors and ECM programming but you should have no issues with the install.
