I have a ej22 engine out of a 95 legacy auto with EGR. I would like to rebuild this motor to switch out my 96 ej22 5 speed non EGR. I have been following some of the EGR/nonEGR topics but I'm still confused. Would I be able to convert the 95 EGR to non-EGR by using the intake from the 96 non EGR and plugging the heads on the 95?
Your advise is greatly appreciated.

this is just a guess, but i don't think you have to do anything except plug any open vac lines on the 95. you also may have electrical connections hanging with no where to connect. keep the intake you have on the 95.

is this right???

why are you not rebuilding the 96 5 spd? it's non-interference just like the 95. how many miles? how's it run?

why not trade some one the the 95 egr, they are much more desirable and drop in to 96 - 99 outbacks, for a non egr, which less desirable.

also if you swap in the 95 for the 96 you will need the exhaust y-pipe, they have different exhaust ports.

thanks, for the info. Since my 96 5sp is a daily driver with 235,000, I thought if I rebuild a different engine for a switcheroo I would only be down a short time. Maybe I need to re-think this.

EJ22's are so common that it's almost pointless to rebuild one unless you plan on upgrades for it at the same time. But then on an N/A engine that basically means cams and head work and neither require splitting the block.
