Not really the right place to ask that. Try one of your local threads. It would help a lot if you had the info under your screen name filled out so we would at least know where you are.

Question, I have a 98 forester 5spd with a blown motor so I wanna use it for a swap. Will the ej255 out of an 05 forester xt drop in or is there more to it? I know wiring harness & such but is there anything I should know & has this been done before bc I haven't found any threads on this specific type of build so any info would help a bunch

Its just like any other subaru swap man, I have a 02 Forester w/ a complete WRX swap. You'll need the wire harness merge, turbo crossmember, ect...

You'll find more info in the motor swap section on here

Hoods don't swap but scoops do.

Why has this place turned into a Q&A for Forester crap? This is a build thread... If you have a question PM somebody...

The owner of this Forester will start updates soon but who needs a long gap of questions that could easily be answered if you took 15 mins to look for it instead of needlessly asking them here....

Exactly...although it has been a problem since the beginning of the forums.
