So I just bought a '96 OBW. My third subaru, but my first OB. It has a really silly number of miles on it, and needs a good bit of this 'n that, but it's basically solid.
According the the PO, the engine was changed at 190k, and the new engine had `60k at the time of the swap. It's a 5s with a 2.2L. Definitely the 2.2 engine.
If I'm reading the history correctly, all engines after '97 are interference engines, and the 2.2 was made before and after '97.
The timing belt is about due, and I would like to be able to tell if my engine is a crash motor or not. Will the serial number tell? fittings?
