Default 1993 Subaru Legacy 2.2L engine in a 1998 outback

Hey guys so I have a 1993 Subaru Legacy that I am tearing apart and the engine is in tip top shape. Anyway my friend has a 1998 outback with a blown engine. In theory I believe it is possible to put the 2.2 in the outback. The problem I am wondering about is the fact that the 1993 are pre-OBDII and as such, the wiring harness is different. With that being said I am just looking for some insight to see if it is worth it. If I am going to have to completely rewire the wires into the 1998 harness then it might not be worth it. Anyway any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks

What motor is in the 98? If it's also an EJ22 is should swap pretty much straight over, maybe a sensor here or there that you need from the other motor. If it's an EJ25 it might be slightly more difficult but still doable.

No its not the EJ22. the engine on the outback is an ej25, that's why I am wondering if it is worth it. Plus, even though the engine out of the 1993 is a Ej22, it is from 1993 and is thus non OBDII. But maybe I can use the outback wiring harness?
