Found a 96 2.0 and would like change to carb and dist is this doable and how hard.I will be adapting to a vw auto.
You can get a trans adp. to mount the 2.2 to a VW trans.
There are a number of them out there.

was this originally a turbo(wrx) and are you using a turbo?
for the time and effort of sourcing a factory carb from overseas, someone might just have a cut down harness to use for your engine.
I understand the preference for a carb in a motorcycle for simplicity all around.
if you are dealing with an engine importer, see what they may get from australia. Othyerwise check the aussie based subaru forums

You could also wire up the MPFI - just get a harness and computer from another 95 to 98 2.2 or 2.5 and that will run it.

The ECU would like to also have a few more inputs - it would like to know if the vehicle is in gear or neutral (a switch that grounds when in-gear or when the clutch is released), and it would like a speed sensor signal. This is a square wave generated either by the speedo head or by a wheel or driveline sensor similar to what is used for cruise control systems.
Otherwise all the sensors for the engine are mounted on the engine intake manifold with the exception of the O2 sensor which is mounted in the exhaust, the MAF which is right after the air-filter in your intake duct, and - depending on the year - possible some MAP sensors that are on the fenderwall of the donor car and connected to the engine with a vacuum line.
When the harness is stripped you keep all the connectors for the engine and it's sensors as well as the ECU, fuel pump, and ignition relays under the dash.
There are a couple board members including myself that offer harness stripping services to remove all the uneccesary portions of the harness and label all the connections that you will use. I charge $200 plus shipping for the OBD-II harnesses like the '96 you found.
