Unfortunately I have a knocking rod in my engine and need to get a new replacement engine. Don't know much about Subaru engines, but trying to find an engine to order online. Wondering if anyone could help me understand what I exactly need to get! It would be more than appreciated. My engine right now is the 2005 2.5L AT EJ25 SOHC and I believe it is the California Emissions model. What year engines will suffice and be able to fit? Also, do I have to worry about the California Emissions part when getting the new engine? Thanks!

Call Mike at 970 217 7551 - for $1500 or so he will rebuild it.  


You can also Call Shawn at Retroroo 720-440-1662, also a rebuilder.  


Or CCR, sorry I don't have there phone, also in Denver.

Online check out "TigerJDMJapaneseEngines" out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, for availability and pricing. They ship all over North America, and the prices for a guaranteed, drop in, low mileage engine from Japan, are more than reasonable.
