Can a 2.5 OB be converted to 2.2?
Posted 14 October 2003 - 08:22 PM
Will the flywheel from the 2.5 fit the 2.2? Could I use the OB ECU or would I have to change the wiring and ECU from the legacy to the OB?
Any assistance would be appreciated. I've owned subaru's for years, from the 1.6 to this 2.5 and this is the most troublesome engine of all. I normally average over 200k on a subaru engine with normal maintenance.

I bought a 97 OBW with auto and a bad 2.5 (broken timing belt). I am thinking about taking a 2.2 out of a 95 Legacy auto and dropping it in.
If im not mistaken, you have the DOHC 2.5? If so then hmmmm..... If it is SOHC then u can throw in older legacy's motor and call it good. But if it's DOHC you'll have to put in older legacy's ecu also, you might......i mean might, have to change a couple of pin outs if it is an AT ecu into your 5 speed OB, and vice versa. or if some of the sensor pin out locations changed from model year differences. Someone back me up or call me F.O.S.
I bought it to sell, but if I can get a 2.2 and put it in the 97 easly enough I might drive it to death instead.
Somebody out there has had to have done this 2.5 to 2.2 swap before. Are we nuts or will it be fine?
The 2.2 was used as late as 2001 on the Impreza and as late as 99 in the Legacy L and Brighton.
