Default What motors will work

I have a 2003 Impreza rs ej25 Sohc that is on its last leg, I am looking to replace the motor and I am wondering which motors will directly work with my wiring harness. I think its 02-04 ej25 sohc from all models but was not 100% sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated

What oil was used in it before you got the car or have you had the car since new? What oil have you been using in it since you bought it???

Just don't want you to use the same ****** oil and blow up your engine again.

As far as engine replacements, you can have your current engine rebuilt or buy a long block, which is the block and heads, and intake manifold if it comes with it from a totaled car or someone selling a good used one.

How many miles, and when does it seem as if it is knocking? At idle, when cruise, slowing down? When was the timing belt and components last changed? The timing belt tensioner could be getting sloppy causing that sound.

First off, thanks for trying to help and the concern... Definitely super cool of ya.
I am not sure what oil was used previous I bought the motor it has 132k, the head gaskets and timing belt where said to have been replaced at 130k but I can not verify that. I put it into my project and put penzoil 10w30 in it. The car has only been fired up and run and revved up while trouble shooting but has not been driven yet. The timing belt cover does need to be replaced. The driver side head still has a drip. I am not sure if this is due to not being done correctly or not broken in. It also leaks a little oil into the exhaust on the same side head. I think I can hear a bearing going out on that side of the engine. I know this is a general question which varies from shop to shop and engine to engine but any ballpark of what a rebuild on an engine should cost? Thanks again

That's the problem with replacing an engine you have to make sure that the replacement engine will have all the right connections.
