Default 1996 outback ej22 question

So here is a question that may be obvious, but I would like a solid answer so I dont make a mistake.

I have a 1996 Outback 2.2 5spd, im come to find out it has been abandoned in the parking lot of the place i have been working at this past 2 weeks or so. so i saw it cus its a subaru and asked everybody around (the businesses) and they all confirmed my suspicion of it being abandoned, so i went to the dmv got the paperwork filled it out and im now waiting for the title in the mail...

well since it had been sitting for a good year and half 2 years the battery was dead as a door nail probably going to need a battery buttttt i can get it to start and run if i jump start it with a vehicle with a big battery.

but this part kinda sucks...it will start and run but it has a horrible rod knock. i got it drive around a little bit to see if brakes and tranny works and it does but no power over 1500-2000 rpms obvious its probably due to the horrible music coming from under the hood but hey so far its only costed me 6 bucks to own this car.

I dont know a whole lot about Subaru engines but enough to get around the ones that i own right now and I'm pretty mechanically incline. what I would like to know is if I can use ANY EJ22 2.2 sohc in the car with no problem. Or what Year(s) of EJ22 can i use that will cooperate with the 96 outback components?

I appreaciate any help i can get.

also i have located what has said to be a 1998 legacy 2.2 sohc enigne from a 98 legacy 2.2 automatic, will that just bolt right up and be plug and play?

First, check if it's dual port exhaust or single port.
Since it's a 1996 5spd w/EJ22, I'm betting either single or dual port.
Any 1995-1998 EJ22E will drop right in & plug up.
If the EJ22E is a single port, a single port exhaust "Y-Pipe" must be used.
It the EJ22E is a dual port, a dual port "Y-Pipe" must be used.
If the EJ22E comes from an automatic, then it will have an EGR system, but that won't matter.
It will plug right in & go.

Alright well I just found out I might be abke to pick up a free running engine but it is out of a 1994 impreza automatic, will it bolt right in and be plug in play or will I have issues with the egr stuff? I if i have issues can I just take what I need from the 96 outback 2.2 and put it on the 94 or what?
