Exclamation DOHC EJ25 going into 96 Leg Outback (2.2 SOHC)

I'm about to take this on, my first swap!

Esentially I'm going in blind. The good news: I also have a WRX, so I can afford to take the Outback down for a while and still get to my job. I've been reading the various threads and resources on these type of swaps, and I hope I'll have a relatively straightforward time with this.

Questions: I'm getting the 2.5 ECU as well, but wiring is always the trick. I'm hoping most of the wiring harness swaps over from the EJ22, but I'm prepared for trouble. Anyone with experience here want to chime in?

Accessories (alternator, AC compressor...) may be missing from the 25 and need to be transferred... hopefully the stuff from the 22 will work. I'm essentially going with eyeballs on a lot of this.

Put the engine in the car. Move the intake manifold wiring harness from the ej22 manifold to the ej25d manifold. Bolt to engine. Bolt up exhaust. Reinstall all plumbing, etc. plug in harness. Start car. Drive away. /swap
