Hi mga sir and sa mga car enthusiast. I have an ae92 stock 4afe second car bought last 2013 since the engine already blown up im planning to put a turbo engine with awd on it. I cannot decide wether to put an ej20 or 4g63t. 3sgte is not an option to me because its only 260hp.im not trying to say that its a slow engine.but as per comparison from stock to stock these two engines are better from 3s...i need your advices mga car enthusiast experts.

you're gonna convert your ae92 into awd AND with a non-toyota engine in it? too much trouble. just buy a 2nd hand gc8 impreza and be done with it. might be even cheaper than the project you're planning.

Paul is right, why not buy an impreza in the first place, it will be less bothersome and will be cheaper than your planned project. But if you'd stick with the ae92 I'm pretty sure that the 3sgte will bolt right in place. But then again, it will require more work to convert it to awd.

how much do you think you're going to spend on this project? evo engines don't come cheap. making the transmission work for your car is another challenge and so is the rear differential which will need the whole subframe and possibly whole rear suspension, brakes and driveshafts. add also the cost of machining. don't even get me started on the electrics!

i understand that this car has some sentimental value to you, why don't you just honor it by not butchering it? also consider the time your car will be down. this project will not just be a weekender, this can take months, even years as some parts will either be bought overseas, machined, or be fabricated.

search in olx, gc8 wrx's can be had at 300k, this will be cheaper than your proposed project i assure you.

I suggest you build a separate project car and use the ae92 as your daily rather.
