Swapping 2001 Outback 2.5L into a 2002 Impreza 2.5L

20

Asked by Dec 04, 2015 at 10:51 PM about the 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a jacked up engine (not sure just yet what the issue truly is) in a 2002
Subaru Impreza 2.5TS.
Would a 2001 Outback 2.5L engine swap over nicely?
Does it swap at all?

My older brother is quite car saavy so doing an engine swap is no problem but
I don't know if an '01 Outback will swap into a '02 Impreza 2.5TS.

Can anyone help?

It probably will, but before you start spending time and money check the emissions laws in your State. Many States do not allow an older engine swap. Must be same year or newer

I live in Kansas and I don't believe there are any rules about engine swapping. Kansas does not require emissions testing either. So besides the legality you think it would swap over nicely?

No promises, I think it will. But I am not a Subaru expert. Try some Subaru forums, register and ask the guys that know for sure. Try: http://forums.nasioc.com/

Yes, it will work. Your brother may have to swap over an EGR tube or something, but it's otherwise a direct swap. I'd inspect the donor motor for clean head gaskets and REPLACE THEM NOW IF NECSSARY, as this is a high failure rate item on the 2.5i. Have fun. Ern
