Legacy777 help please

Anyway, I am sure you can help.
I am replacing my 2.2 NA in my 1990 AWD 5 spd Legacy.
I am going with a JDM, and the EJ22 is $800, and the EJ20 (SOHC NA) is $450.
I am told they are dimensionally identical and I can use my intake, exhaust, ECU, etc for smog compliance and it should run just fine.
Here's where I would like another expert opinion. The EJ20 is a JDM not offered in USA. This is supposedly the SOHC non-turbo, run-of-the-mill engine that they have high quantities of, hence the much lower price.
Can I get your opinion, please?
p.s. others feel free to chime in too

I have heard the same thing. Very common for use in legacies in Japan and Oz.. thus easy availability
