anyhow, that engien is supposed to be one of the most reliable engiens subaru ever built, next to the 2.2L engine. it runs a timing chain, which seems to last forever in toyota engines. (22R)
Im sure someone more qualified to answer your question will reply soon....

Having said that, I haven't heard of any problems to date myself. You might call CCR Engines to see if they know anything. I do recall Emily making a comment (quite some time ago) that there was speculation that this engine might be a "leaker" over the long term since Subaru dispensed with gaskets in several areas and went with sealants instead. Bear in mind, that's simply speculation.
The car and the engine would be fine I feel for application. You might want to add a transmission cooler. I just can't really comment on long term reliability. (Then again, who really can? )
