Default 99 outback ej20k swap

I am swapping an ej20k into my 99 outback. I am uncertain on which ecu I can use. I would like to pass emissions and I don't want to spend a ton of cash does any body have any ideas or opinions

not gonna pass with any JDM/EDM, EJ20K ECU. the ECU won't communicate with any emissions testing devices.

What you are trying to do can not be done. EJ20K is OBD1 and your 99 Outback is OBD2.

sell it and get a USDM WRX/STI engine/harness/ECU/clip/etc. so you can pass emissions. whatever you choose, make sure it's as complete as possible. verify the condition of used anything you purchase. and prepare to rebuild it if you don't take the time.

the K isn't worth your time unless your car is OBDI, or emissions exempt.
