hi all i have a 2001 subaru forister with the 2.5 sohc with 165k. it tossed a rod out of the blue?? i found a 1999 outback with a 2.5 dohc. can i use the eng in my forister if i swap the heads??
It will work. I've done it. The shape of the pistons are different and it will drop the compression. But it runs normally. Use 99 head gasket to ensure proper piston to head clearance.

360, if you use the dohc gaskets will you run into the phase 2 oil seepage issue or the phase 1 overheating issue ?

Thats good to know. On a similar thread have you built a 2.2 with 2.5 heads? I heard they are peppy.
No, but I've done a EJ22E with EJ205 WRX heads. Came out really nice.
