Question type: Car Customization

I am looking to do a engine swap in my 99 Subaru
Forester s I have a 2.5 it's the ej25 I want to get
something that I can put in there with a little more
power that's not too costly if possible and was
wondering if there's any or if any of the motors
would bolt up to my tranny

Trying to figure out what options I have


put a cam .header.intake,air inlet system for under 5-6 hundered to start...more fuel and air in...also lighten it up..hood rims...every part that moves like rims is twice the weight reduction here read this and enjoy spending your money i have...> http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f66/where-buy- performance-parts-n-forester-some-info-36363/


No engine swap nor mods will be satisfying and risk- free...especially intake/exhaust stuff. Better that you stiffen the tire/wheel package to improve handling to get an improved feel. 225/55VR17 rubber bolts up nicely and remarkably improves handling. Think about a thicker rear swaybar if available too. DO change your ATF to protect the tranny while you're at it...and avoid synth motor oil.
