but i mean, yes.. you can put any motor in any car if you knew what you were doing and it will fit in the engine bay.


i changed my mind. me and my buddy are going to rebuild it and turbo it and cool air and exhaust.


if you have the EJ22 engine it's not worth turboing, you won't get much "reliable" power out of it, your going to want to build yourself a EJ25 engine, trust me it will be much easier, I speak from experience, I tryed with the EJ22 and it just did not last so I have started on an EJ25.


LOLZ VTAAAAKKKK yo, super fast cuz VTAK is super fast!!

agreed why would you want to put a shiity ass vtech motor that will barely pull 2,000 pounds?... oh its got bigger cams and what not... its made for a honda... leave it in a honda... anyways the ej25 class is a way better fit than a honda engine and you have alot more room to upgrade it... on my 06 were about to drop the ej257 with vf43 change the regular wrx wagon into a sti.... all i gotta say is when i took the old ej255 engine out with the td06 on it... it was waaay simpler than taking out my homies ka20 and replacing it with a RB


are u stupid or what why u put a honda in a subaru,not only its impossible because its a i4 and not a h4 the engine its not on the same axe.and subaru engine are more powerfull!!!!!


actually the honda B18 engine can run upto 500 bhp bottom end and is very tunable i have a B16A2 and i run scoobys off the road so if you dont know about vtec dont talk about it ;) also it is possible to create a vtec turbo which when done correctly can run upto 700bhp im pretty sure them figures are past subaru impreza figures...


Actually it's possible to hit 1200 whp with an STI 2.5L Subaru motor and run 7sec 1/4 miles on DOT approved street tires, no Honda motor will allow you to do that because they would not see that kind of power or allow you to keep the AWD.

why put a honda in a subaru get hold of the 3litre or 3.5 litre out of a b6r liberty or an out back, this motor is only 15 to 20 mm longerv than an ej20 andhas 190 kw na the bring on the turbos..


agreed that you probably could run scoobys off the road at 700bhp.... but can your vtech go offroad?... my scooby can... keeps up with quads lol
