A 2000 Legacy 2.5 should be SOHC too.

What's New for 2000
ALL NEW 3rd generation Legacy Brighton, L, and GT

All Legacys have the more powerful Phase II 2.5L SOHC 4 cylinder Boxer engine first used in 1999 Forester and Impreza RS. There is no 2.2L engine in the Legacy anymore. This 2.5L has 20% more torque at 1250 RPM, 30% more at 2,4000 RPM and a whopping 50% more at 3,250 RPM!
I would like to see a photo of this 2000 DOHC please.

At my shop, we refer to it as SomeData for a reason. I've heard rumors of weird Phase I/Phase II hybrid motors (even once got a SOHC motor with a block that had #5 thrust and 48mm rod journals) though, so what you should do is just look at both motors yourself, it's really obvious which one it is looking at the timing cover. If they're both SOHC like they should be, it's a direct fit swap. If not, you want a different motor, because the DOHC one is inferior in every way.
