What swap are you doing? Are you swaping a 2.5 engine into a wrx?

If you are swaping the 2.5 engine into a wrx your compression will be way to high to run a turbo unless you got a new set of pistions for a 2.5 turbo.

You just need to look up a timing belt diagram(its been posted before). The timing marks will be the same with the 2.5 as they were with the 2.0. Make sure the cam gear with the timing sensor lines on the back goes on the top of the passenger side head for the cam sensor to work.
