Nice Andy, what years the camper? My '72 looks almost identical except for the ugly ass tail lights.

Just bought a '98 2.2 for mine. Just gotta figure out the header, since it's single port.

Nice work, you seem to have it all figured out.

I have a single port motor right now, if you need a header made, I can do it for you.


Oh it's a 71 camper

Maybe Subaru parts could fix it?

I love the suby swaps!! Is the wiring difficult to do? That's what's holding me up (used to be a programmer, but wiring scares me).

Nice set of vehicles! Barny with a Suby? HMMMMmmmm

Subi barndoor sounds like some East German or Lithuanian engineering.

I got Mick from Busaru to make me the main harness. I did have to solder and extend every wire.

But he sends you a labeled original Subaru harness with relays, computer and almost all engine sensors. If you can wire up a radio/sound system, you can do it.

We have an abundance of mint condition, cheap JDM Subaru engines. I wonder if the wiring is any different. But this seems like the logical extension. Tons of miles to cover up here and I want to do something a bit different. Hmm.

Picked up another donor today. I'm not starting a thread for all my swaps unless you guys want to see them. I got plenty of swaps right now.

I paid $800 for the car, it's a 1998 2.5 dual overhead cam motor. It's a driver, body is beat to shit but it drives. it's the most I've paid for a Subi engine, but I know it runs. I don't really want to dick with a junkyard Subi engine then find out it doesn't run. I've had great luck with them.

I'll use the engine, radiator, and ac shit for a type 4 replacement.
