No - it's an EJ22.

Outback Sport is an impreza.

Outback Sport didn't get the EJ25 until 2002.

No impreza came with an EJ25 before 1998.

The seller says it is a 2.2 1995 - This is correct!  The 95 2.2 is a great engine, non interference so if the t-belt or idler pulley goes no valve damage.  Dual Port Exhaust.

what do you mean "the body style is 98"?

 

if you mean it has a hood scoop then maybe a 97+ hood was installed on an earlier model.

or maybe it's a later model.

 

you might want to ask specific questions - like why does it matter to you whether it's a 95 or 98?  it's rather immaterial on nearly all grounds for such an old vehicle - they are all Impreza wagons with a few trim and other minor changes. at this point i don't see the value in speculating about an "incorrect year".

copy - that was answered in the first reply:

 

it's an EJ22.

Outback Sport didn't get the EJ25 until 2002.

 

1993 - 2001 impreza wagon/outback sport = EJ22

 

Some early years got EJ18's - like 1995 manual transmissions...check cars101.com for more info on those.

Only the 2.5 RS had 2.5

 

A regular Impreza Sport from 95-2001 will have a 2.2
