yep that helps thanks forget that then lots of splicing needed lol. next question then .... if i got a 2.0gl impreza is the only difrence between it and the turbo version the fact that it has different internals and a turbo? (obvisoly the exhaust different but that obviose. in other words would everything just plug in if i dropped in a turbo engine?.

(i am going to look for a turbo version first i just like to do my own work on cars to no everythings perfect before i drive it)

Won't just drop in, no. Need the wiring loom from the turbo as well and that is a hell of a job. There is a thread somewhere on NASIOC where someone undertook the N/A to turbo conversion and it took serious man hours to complete the job.

Also bear in mind you'd need all the transmission, running gear, brakes, suspension etc. to have it run safely with the power.
