I was at a local ( small ) Ford dealer today that I do business with from time to time and he happens to have a very nice 1999 2.5 GT. He cannot sell it due to a CEL and is clueless twords Subaru's but knew it had an EGR code and an engine swap but he says it runs and drives fine. Told him I'd take a look at it, and he opened the hood. EGR control solenoid connector is dangling and no EGR valve, 2.2L swap. Now, I forgot to check the full details to see if it was a phase II or not but it looks like a phase I to me ( i've only delt with phase I also ). He knows that I know my stuff and suggested that he would pay me to fix it, so I agreed.. It's also a car that I wouldn't mind having, so there is the possibility that I could end up with it.. I know that if it is a Phase II, I would have to pull the heads and put phase I 2.2 heads/ intake on it, but I don't know if I would want to get that deep into it on his watch..
Does the '99 2.5 GT use an EGR on the 5spds?
As to why he does not have his mechanic do the work, he does not have a very good mechanic and I think his mechanic won't touch it as most are intimidated by the Subaru boxer.
