Hi all

Need help. I put a 1995 Subaru Legacy Wagon 2.2lt standard trans engine into a 1997 Subaru Outback wagon. It had a 2.5lt double overhead cam, auto trans with a head gasket problem.

Need the correct ECM for the 2.2lt to run correctly.

Everything fit well, including the auto trans flex plate and torque converter.

It runs at higher rpm's, but does not idle at all.

Any help would be appreciated!

The IAC may help.  They have slight differences Auto to Manual. You can try adjusting it by marking the location and then loosen the 2 screws and adjust.  The other problem you are going to have is if the engine did not have the EGR Valve.  It will throw codes. Search the form, lots of good info on this.

Sounds like you might have a major vacuum leak, check all of your hoses to make sure you got them all hooked up after the swap.  A lot of people miss the one on the bottom passenger side of the main intake duct from the air filter box to the throttle body (I did it once after a swap myself).
