Car Information: 1997 Subaru Legacy GT Sedan, 2.5L DOHC


Hi there, 


Im hoping that someone may be able to tell me why the ignition coils I had delivered for my car are not the correct ones, I've searched and searched and every coil-pack I come across is depicted as the ones I received. However the stock pack I'm attempting to replace Is a much smaller pack:


Diamond F-560.


The new pack will not bolt and does not possess the same connecting pin. My engine has not been swapped, I know it is a 2.5L EJ25 as I had the timing belt done about a year ago.


I've been reading that my year was a "transition" year and that I may have a certain type of pack. Does anyone know about this? I'm really looking forward to continuing my troubleshooting for a misfire and I was hoping this might have been the fix.


Thanks in advance for the time!

i also have a 97, built in October....recently did headgaskets. the valve cover seals were incorrect and after going thru some hoops found I had valve covers from a pre transition motor....so, look up the part for a 96 and see if the pic matches whats on your vehicle
