I have owned a Subaru for a long time (87 wagon with a 4" lift) not to familiar with the newer Subaru's. I recently picked up a 00 Outback wagon from a guy that was trying to swap a 04 ej205 JDM WRX motor into it. It would be a sweet ride but the problem he ran into is the 04 USDM WRX harness won't plug into the JDM motor. So my question is, has anyone had success with this type of swap before? My thought was to install a US WRX intake manifold along with the cam pulleys, crank pulley, and all the necessary sensors to match up with the US WRX ecu and wiring. Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated!
