I can attest to you that the crosshatches are most likely the original engine and wear. Crosshatches never wear out, and rebuilding a block is never necessary unless there is an obvious bottom end knock, ehre it is more economical to source a used block instead of a rebuild. You can get 400,000 miles out of that block if you take care of it, which it look like you are on the road towards!
Keep us updated as i love stories of cars rescued from junk to live on for many years and miles.
side note- That timing belt tensioner can be converted to one style or the other simply by switching the bracket that it mounts to.

Consider ej22e heads (f you got them) SOHC for a little compression bump1990-95. You would have to use the ej22 intake but it matches the wiring harness.

You will have to run higher octane fuel. You can priobably get b on lower octane or middle octane, but the ECU will pull timing so it could be doggy under load. It's a common upgrade to get out of the issues associated with the ej25d

Thanks for that great info. The only down side for me is that I won't be able to use the free gas at my work .
You could add a can of octane boost. I frankenswapped my forester after it had a full tank, so i used octane boost to run it out. (for some reason i thought you were in australia, thinking your car was RHD)
