2000 2.2 swap into a 1994 legacy?

1. Rebuild the current motor.
2. I found a 2000 2.2 with very low miles for very very reasonable. BUT....how feasible is this swap? Electronic configuration changes is what concerns me the most.
Let me know what the scivvy is. Thanks

the newer motor won't work for all sorts of reasons, unless you're up for a huge project. it'll bolt up fine but that's about it, the electronics are all wrong.

True all the gaskets and rubbers turn brittle, but those are cheap to replace. Put all new seals and gasktets in it, new timing components, water pump, plugs wires etc,and run it another 500k miles.
my 2 cents.
