Default Engine Fits

I have a 1996 Legacy Lsi that might need some engine work and instead of putting too much work into it I would rather buy a new engine with less miles on it. If anyone knows about fits as far as a 2.2 L for this car or what size engine I should be looking for to mount up without any modifaction really needed please let me know. I realize is it a 2.5 L engine and I was just wondering if the 2.2L would fit and from what years/models I might be able to find a match as far as the engine. Also I found a set of heads, which is what I need but these heads are off a 2.5 L from a 99 legacy outback wagon, Any idea if these fit on my engine? Im new to subarus so I am learning about all this in the process so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Its how much $ ya got? plenty will fit but what do you want to do in terms of wiring. EJ18, 20, 22, 22t, 25 will all fit. But whats your mechanical know-how and budget like?

budget for now is limited, a smaller more fuel efficient engine would be nice for now, later I plan on putting in atleast a turbo engine but for now my father will be driving the car so it doesnt really matter, As far as mechanical know-how, with an engine swap I can get through it but havent done too much with a motor that has as much computer controlled components so the less electrical work the better. Let me know what you think.

I recently investigated buying a new engine vs doing a head gasket replacement.

I have a 2.5 SOHC / 1999 Forester

Unfortunately in my case the SOHC is relatively new and the aftermarket choices are few and expensive.....about twice the cost of a 2.5 DOHC.

I was told I could swap SOHC for DOHC but would require a totally new wiring harness.

I can tell you that doing a straignt swap should be easy....especially if the engine you are putting in was already assembled with the Overhead MAnifold in place. There are actually more hoses and wires required to install the OH M/F as there are to install the engine.

On my install (as far as computer) there were basically 2 large wire harness connectors. It was very simple.
