Default Legacy gt long block in a Forester xt?

Just like the title says.
I have a blown up 2005 Forester XT, and a crashed 2005 Legacy GT. Can I use the long block from the Legacy in the Forester.

Well, technically yes, but most likely some rewiring would need to be done unless everything plugs in and is read properly by the ecu. Everything should be very similar in my opinion. Just check out the block and make sure you have the same heads, etc.

Yes swap it! I did the same swap a few years back. It was all plug and play. I sold my xt about 6 months ago now. I drove it for almost 3 years with no issues.

Worst case you'll need to pull your TGV/manifold/harness assembly and swap it over to the FXT one. Shouldn't be too bad.

That’s how I did it. I used the block and beads from the LGT. All the rest was reused from the xt.
