Hey guys what issues are we looking at in putting a 02 2.2 into a 98 forester. It presently has the 2.5 DOHC I have been told that the swap is easy if you use a newer intake and harness. Is that the only thing we will need to change?

Correst that it is a 92 not an 02 that is going into the 98 forester.

No EGR port on the 92 head, plus the intake wiring harness will be different, plugs out the side rather than plugs out the back. It's much easier to use a 95-99 2.2 out of an automatic transmission car. That will plug in, bolt in, and if you use a 95, the 2.5l exhaust will bolt right up. 96-99, you need the exhaust manifold to go with the 2.2l, as it's a single port exhaust rather than dual port.

So, you can use a 95-99 2.2l intake and harness on a 92 block, but you will still have the EGR problem. Someone was working on the EGR problem, you can weld a bung in the exhaust and run a pipe up to the EGR valve if you have one on the intake you get.

Is the forester a manual or automatic? Use the flexplate or flywheel that goes with your transmission, not whatever comes on the engine.

yeah EGR will be the main hang up. you'll still want a 95+ intake manifold too for the wiring harness, the 92 harness won't plug in like the later ones. you can install one without EGR like I did, it runs you just have to live in a state that doesn't care about CEL's :-\:confused::lol:
