Yahoo auctions tells me that's a 97/98 SF5 5 speed EJ20G (turbo) ECU.

Turbo Foresters are VERY common, so it could be the original one. Do you have a picture of the chassis tag?

The motor in it is DOHC, with the old style MAF that bolts to the airbox. spark plug wires on the intake mani. I cant find any numbers other than the EJ20 on top, gotta do some extreme cleaning.

The ECU, from what I have found, is what i believe to be the original for the car. I didnt think that this ECU would work right with a turbo? maybe this car is an original turbo model? heres ECU details. Ill try to get a good pic of the ECU, cant right now.

Basically trying to find if this ECU is original, and maybe Im wrong about the EJ20J bein an NA motor? Please correct me if im wrong about anything. Thanks
