Can GD series STI be transplanted to GC8?

Hello guys,

Any idea whether the STI engine and tranny from GD series can be transplanted to '97 UK spec GC8?

Please advise because i am trying to work out the best cost/power tuning.

Thank you.

Yes - But!


The standard 01 WRX has a TD04. think you will find you have the same turbo on your UK GC8.

The newage Sti (GDB) have the VF Series turbo.


The VF-34 / VF-35 would be a direct bolt-on & a excellent replacment turbo.

I believe the engine transplant can be done but requires all the loom, ecu etc. A cheaper option is a 2.5
