2006 LGT build with 2010 wrx ej255

Recommended Posts

My car is the 2006 LGT. Suspected spun rod bearing this morning. My question is...I was given a low mileage EJ255 from a 2010 WRX. After talking about it with a local guy i was told that the oil pans (and bolt patterns), oil pickip, and windage trays were different between the model years. The issue being that i was told the wrx pan hits the sub frame when swapped into the LGT. Im looking for advice/confirmation on which parts of this if not all, are true. Mainly the bolt patterns on the pan, and the clearance to the sub frame if i can not use my LGT pan on the wrx block.

Lots of us remove our ej255 and install a ej257 short block, they are the same.


Not sure about the oil pans being different.
