Default EZ36 Engine Swap

Hello All. I can't seem to find any answers so apologies if this has been asked a thousand times.

The EZ36 in my 2009 Tribeca blew and I'm looking to replace it. Does anyone know if I can just swap in any EZ36 from any Subaru or do I need to specifically get a Tribeca EZ36. In other words, would I be able to swap in a Legacy EZ36 with little difficulty?

Thanks in advance.

I believe the Legacy has the EZ30.

Other than that, the EZ36 is an EZ36 so they should be al the same.
The EZ36 is the next generation EZ30 and appears to be a better platform

Thanks for the reply! It looks like you could get the EZ36 in later model Legacys so I think I'll just go with one of those.

I didn't know if maybe some of the brackets or something else were different, but then I guess that shouldn't matter since I won't need to replace those, just the long block.

Thanks Again.

That is correct. The EZ36 was also used in the Legacy 3.6R's. Blocks would be the same.

Thanks for the info. They sell used 3.6 legacy engines for far cheaper than 3.6 Tribeca engines so this should save me some good money.
