Default I put a used EJ25 from a 2001 Legacy L into my 2002 2.5 RS no start

I bought my 2002 Impreza 2.5RS with a bad motor ( timing belt smooth pulley failed, and bent valves ) I bought a 2001 Legacy L with the EJ25 SOHC just as my motor was swapped it all out used my intake from the original motor ( another issue is I have to hold the brown connector to the harness for a good connection for some reason) aside from that. When I crank the car it wants to start but sounds like a timing issue, coughing through the intake but no actual start. I'm thinking I have to change the cam pulleys, but I'd like some ideas if anybody has one. Thanks

I agree, you probably need to swap the cam pulleys. Could also be the crank sprocket/pulley, so check the timing pick-ups on that, too, while you've got the timing belt off.

I'm in the process of doing this now, my left hand cam pulley is different completely in looks but has the same amount of teeth. and my crank sprocket is different based on the markings it has and also pickups. Also I fixed my harness connection issue, it was a loose ground.

No need for pictures, sounds like you found the issue. Crank and cam pickups must match the ECU. Use the old ones.
