I took the drive train from my 1997 legacy 2.5GT and install into my 2000 Outback Sport wagon but the wire harness connectors are different. Is there a simple harness I can get to plug it in?

You will have to change the harness and ECM/Computer to get it to run right.

Ok thanks. I bought the outback without any drive train at all and the legacy was a good running doner car so I have the computer and wiring but is a major job to pull dash & swap harness. I know for Honda's they have a short harness to use when swapping drive trains, wasn't sure if Subaru had something similar?

You should be able to just change the under hood harness and computer.

You're trying to put a phase 1 motor into a phase 2 car, so you will need to merge harnesses.
