Default Compatible motors for 08 Impreza 2 5i?

I have a quick question for anyone that might know. I have a 08 Impreza 2.5i (base) that needs a motor. All I know is it has the n/a EJ25. Does anyone know any makes/model years of other Subarus that the motors can drop in my 08?

If I have to swap intakes, ecus, etc. I'm fine with it I just don't know what would actually fit if possible. Thanks!

Buy a wrx, I did lol I also have a 2.5i 09 Impreza. I picked up an 02 wrx for cheap and started that as my build. Best of luck, I came to nasioc with the very same question you have. And now I own a wrx no need to swap....just start to build.

He's not talking about a WRX swap.

OP, just buy the motor that's for your car for the least headache. You don't want to get into swapping electronics.

With the correct motor, you should be able to unbolt and unplug everything. Pull the old motor, put the new one in, and bolt/plug it back together. Easy peasy. No headaches.

Loyale93 I understand, however, he is talking about a "swap". Which I had the same question When I came here, and was told it'd be a wiring issue. Not that it couldn't be done, but it'd be a mess. I just said buy a wrx. Which is exactly what I was told, and read many of times lol.
