Hello, been lurking a while to get the information needed to do 2.5 -> 2.2 transplant in my 99 outback. What a great resource!

Anyways, I have a quick question about a used 95 2.2 i found in a junk yard. The engine if from a 95 auto with about 150k - $250. I am totally broke so i wanted to do the swap as cheaply as possible, but the engine doesnt seem to be in the best shape. I was doing a little pre swap maintenance and when i pulled the spark plug wires i noticed a large amount of white chaulky powder in the plug socket. Is this something i should be worried about? I havent changed any internal components or gaskets inside the engine. Is this something that warrants an engine rebuild?

I assume you're in Albany NY?

Thats probably just crud form the plug wires sealing poorly in the holes.

It is kinda like the white stuff that appears on the battery terminals. A little de lectric grease would solve that problem. That is where I would start.
