Default Foreste JDM swap

My 98 forester engine blew and I need to replace it. I'm considering a JDM engine (cheaper than used USDM) Is it true that the JDM has less power and smaller cylinders? Is it recommended to do this? ANything to change to make CA legal?

JDM bits.....


what about usdm has less power and bigger cylinders? thats totally possible.
just get a long motor 2.5L JDM or usdm, whatever is cheaper. swap in and run your current electronics, then you will pass cali whatnots as long as you used to pass it before you blew up.
