EJ25 swap to EJ22
Posted 06 April 2010 - 07:36 PM
I currently have a 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback(ej25)2.5 automatic that has a head gasket on it's way out. I found a 1997 Subaru Legacy(ej22)2.2 motor that came out of a standard tranny, I am just wondering if anyone has tried this swap and what problems I may occur while doing this. Also can I use my computer with the ej22???? And are the wiring harness are plug n play? I NEED ADVICE

If the 2.2 isn't plug and play, you'll quickly spend a lot more money making it work than you would have spent replacing the HGs.

i swapped a 2.5 out for a 2.2 on a 97 outback, and the only thing that was different was the ac compressor, all i had to do was switch over the bracket.
keep the old 2.5 and do the head gaskets, this way you have a spare motor, or something you can sell for a premium to someone who needs an engine
