In the filter application guide at Pep Boyz I noticed that (excluding turbo) all Legacy-based 2.5 are EJ253, whereas all Impreza/ Forester-based 2.5 are EJ251.

What's the difference?

One type of engine is in all Legacy and the other is in all Imprezas and Foresters. The only thing that I can think of might be the engine wiring harness, I know there is a difference between the Legacys and Imprezas. I can't imagine that there would be a difference in any filters.

Thanks Corky.

That's pretty much all I could think of as well ...stuff like attachment points & brackets.

It still doesn't make sense to me as to why that alone would warrant a different engine code tho.

Oh well...

My legacy has EJ251, I just double checked that since I ordered some parts online.
