Default 1998 legacy OB overheating issue

Hey guys i need some help here. My 1998 legacy outback is pushing all the coolant into the overflow tank when running. It fills the overflow tank then continues to bubble it out of the overflow tank. Then when I turn off the car it sucks it back into the radiator. I cannot drive it as it starts to overheat when it dumps all my coolant out. I need help. Any suggestions?? Also, radiator cap and thermostat have already been replaced. Thanks

I had a feeling. Since its a Dohc I gotta rip the motor out. Looks like I found my summer project.

It won't be your summer project, it's going to start in spring

I was thinking of swapping the motor. What motor would be a direct drop in?
