My friends son just had a timing belt snap and probably has bent valves.  Are the heads interchangeable with a 2000-2004 2.5 outback or forester?  How about short blocks out of compatible  years as well?  Car-part is giving me only foresters of the same year.

Yes...interchange w/all non-turbo models of those years. There were changes to the cam sprockets (?), but just reuse the originals (if not damaged, of course).
