You can but you will have a lot of research to do for a v8. You wont be likely to find any of the info on a Subaru forum but they have been done before. Regardless, swapping anything other than what the car came with into it will require a lot of work so do your basic research before you decide on the motor swap, then make sure you do some in depth research about the particular swap you choose.

do you know of a subby hybrid engine?

Nick Eidemiller

Yes, they hybrids use a combination of 3 different subaru engines assembled into one. You can make good power but they aren't terribly reliable.

Actually alex there is no such thing as an inquisitive idiot. Because your only an idiot if you don't ask any questions, or you think Being inquisitive is idiotic. P.S. I kept your name lowercase on purpose.
