Hello everyone, I picked up a 2000 outback limited with a blown timing belt.
Well... it had a blown belt, and the guy slapped on a new one and tried to start it... so needless to say the motor is in dire straights. pulled heads there's bent valves, damaged pistons, and all that fun stuff. no problem, i have a running motor out of a 2002 TS that I will drop into the car as a temporary fix while I completely rebuild the original motor over the winter. The car is an auto (gross) which I'm going to leave for now until the rebuilt motor goes in and I have rounded up clutch linkage, rear diff etc.
I ordered from subaru today- oil pan, exhaust gaskets, rear main seal, oil separator plate, water pump gasket, t-stat housing gasket.
I ordered from online today- gates timing belt kit tckwp304, t-stat.
The 2000 ecu currently in the car is for an auto tranny tz1a4caba and ej251axawl engine.
The 2002 engine going into the car is for a standard tranny tyl54vc2aa and ej251aw3ab engine.
So, should I swap the ecu with the matching motor and trick into thinking there is an auto, or leave it as is and just plug in the motor?
And, is my parts list complete for this project? Like I say I'm just looking for 6 months of reliability so basically I am going economy class for now, and going all out on the winter build.
Thanks for any advice here, I have done tons of reading it seems either way will work but I figured check with the experienced before I'm turning the key.
