Default Swap '99 Foreste SOHC 2.5 into '99 Legacy DOHC ??

Just bought a nice '99 Outback Limited...but the DOHC 2.5L has a "death rattle" from within......

I happen to have a SOHC 2.5L out of a '99 Forester.

Can the SOHC replace the DOHC 2.5L....??

What would have to be exchanged?

What about just using the SOHC longblock....would the intake manifold from the DOHC bolt up??

Compare the motor harnesses and look at the plug terminations on the motor sensors. If they match up then there should'nt be a problem. You may need to swap injectors.

You can swap shortblocks between the two.
