Default Trying to fit a legacy 2.5 in my 1996 L. Help please

K guys I have searched for a couple hours on this and can't find a clear answer. I found a 05 Legacy 2.5L motor. What all is involved in swapping it into my 96 impreza L with a SOHC 2.2L in it? What wiring is involved? My 2.2L seized up after running out of oil playing in the snow so that is why I am swapping.

i put an 02 2.5 in my 96 1.8 coupe
it bolted right
i used the 1.8 engine harness and swapped it onto the 02 engine
had to do a little wiring for the IAC and i had to use my 1.8 throttle body
but it was pretty painless
