My 1999 Forester is fitted with the 2.5L SOHC Phase II engine with EJ253 designation.

2000 Forester, as far as I know, are fitted with the same 2.5L SOHC Phase II engine but are designated as EJ251.

Does anyone know what was changed besides the nomenclature?

Well I found on another board that said the EJ251 is a non-turbo EJ25; EJ253/EJ255 designed to take boost and supposedly came in Forester XT and Legacy turbos. It also mentions an STi EJ257.
