(According to wikipedia this is an EJ253...which was also used in the '99 Forester/Impreza??)
Can I install my Phase 1 EJ25 DOHC heads (edit: from a '98 Forester Phase 1 EJ25D block) on it and go?
I've read the '99 Legacy series used the EJ25D heads and Phase 2 block, but 2005 is new enough to make me wonder.
(I know I'll only use 1/2 the mounting bolts to connect to my transmission.)
Would/could the valve damage the piston/block in any way?
