Your donner has everything you'll need.
Keep the Outback ECU.
You need the head pipe and the flex plate.
(i.e. one will be a twin port exhaust the other a single,
remove the flywheel and instal the flex plate)
There maybe some EGR issues depending on the 2.2 series.
The purge cannister plumbing may be a bit different.
Swap some mounts (PS and AC) -> good to go.
There are many many posts on this with complete
Good luck, my swap was a piece of cake but I started
with a 95 2.2L

You don't have the torque convertor seated correctly. You must put it on first, make sure its fully seated. From what I hear the last 1/4-1/2 inch is the most difficult to get correct.

YOU ARE WISE!!! people do this and crack their internal auto trans oil pump, basically ruining the transmission unless you're up for a trans tear down.
It is within about 1/2 inch/12mm and I could draw it up tight with the bolts but I don't like the idea of doing it that way. Does this sound like a concern?
pull the engine back out, seat the TC in the transmission, install engine, then install TC bolts through the bellhousing access hole under the throttle body (rubber plug inserts here...if yours still has one!). don't strip them.
to seat the TC: rotate the converter around by hand clockwise, then pull it out ever so slightly out and rotate it counterclockwise a hair, then push back in. keep doing this and eventually it will engage properly. i usually take a measurement before i start this process of the TC sitting there idle. then when it seats i can visually see it go in that last 1/4" and i'm happy.

I still didn't like this so I pulled the engine back out. Tried the torque converter several more times with the same result, which feels like its seated good when I spin it.
Now I am looking at the starter, and I pull the starter shaft onto the tc gear to see how it looks there. The starter gear only mates to the tc gear about half way. I can see from the wear marks on both gears that they are supposed to engage fully. I don't have a good feeling about it. I got some really good pics. to show but I can't find my cord right now, I will have to try to post them when I can.

the first generation of 4EAT's had a ring seal around the exterior of that tube. check the parts sheets when you go to order one and see if it's on the newer ones as well. you might want to replace that. subaru calls it a "ring seal". it's a very odd piece.
