I need to rebuild the motor from my 96 Legacy GT EJ25 DOHC. I can get a Short block with some form of damage to the end of the crank for about $200. Problem is that it is for an 03-05 Forester, 03-04 Impreza, or 02-04 Legacy/Outback which are SOHC. What are the odds this would work in my car with the use of my heads and intake and exhaust? Anybody have any idea?

I think you might have a clearance problem . The pistons are different on the DOHC to the SOHC - recess and valve relief
