2012 ej25 in a 98 subaru legacy outback

Asked by Gaeric1 Mar 27, 2019 at 09:10 AM about the 1998 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Outback Limited AWD Wagon

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 98 Subaru Legacy Outback 2.5L DOHC
EJ25 that has a few issues. I found a 2012 EJ25

What would it take to swap these? I'm already
pulling the engine from my 98, and want to know if
I want to deal with the headache of doing this
swap before I buy the new engine.

I advise that you do not attempt this. Not worth it.
