I'm thinking of replacing my engine in my 1998 outback AT 2.5 DOHC with an engine 2.2 EJ from a 1999 impreza Manual transmission.
This is my first Subaru, GREAT CAR, a crapp engine- Piston swap and a noisy rod bearing. Despite the fact I did a full rebuilt 10 km ago. The thought of opening that engine case again almost makes me ill.
I have already bought the 2.2 EJ engine and exhaust system. low miles and excellent leak down. It was a great deal.
Will the intake manifold from the 2.5 EJ DOHC AT fit on the 2.2 EJ SOHC MT?
The gaskets look different. Will an adapter plate work?
Will 2.5 EJ DOHC heads go on the 2.2 EJ block? what would the CR be? Can I use 2.5 head gaskets? I have an extra pair...
Do I need to change the ECM?
What about the Power Steering lines?
the Y pipe I'm okay with..
