you can also use any 95 - 98 auto trans from a 2.2L car as long as you get the matching rear diff.
some, a very few, 99 outbacks will also work and match the final drive, but at some point in 99 the outback went to the phase 2 trans and the wiring harness changed as well as the trans code number. making it work is a challenge, if not impossible.
when comparing trans code numbers, any trans that starts with TZ102Z2.... (the last 3 characters do not matter, they refer to the model the trans was in) will work, the second 2 after the second Z is the final drive identifier. 2.2L cars have a letter in that position.
