    Hi LockMedic. I''m new to this forum and was referred to you from a post, they said you might have an answer.

    I have a 2009 2.5 PZEV with a blown engine. I also have a complete non-PZEV engine from 2007. I read in this forum that the exhaust and injectors are different. I also found that the PZEV has 4 bolts where the exhaust manifold bolts to the head while my non-PZEV has 3 bolts.

    So my first question is; Are the heads different? If so, do the heads, intake, etc from a 2009 PZEV bolt up to the 2007 non-PZEV short block without causing any issues like pistons hitting the valves?

    Second question; Assuming that the heads and stuff are interchangeable, is there anything else I should change or look out for? (I understand I'd have to check the the electrical plugs on the sensors & stuff because they tend to vary)

    I've searched posts on here and other forums but could not find any definitive answer. I can't be the only one to try this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I found another Subaru dealer not too far off, that could order my 1ş key (and 2 keyless remotes in stock actually -expensive, but.....). Thanks, lockmedic.

    Hi!

    My outback is a 2002 and looking for 2 new keyless entry remotes and a primary key. Mine got stolen when my camera bag got swiped. I have a back-up key however. Can you redirect on Canada side? Or advise?
    My local Canadian Subaru dealership has no interest in helping me.

    Cheers and thanks,

    Gar

    HI,

    I was referred to you from one of my posts. I have an 05 outback which just threw a rod. I was wondering if you knew of any junk yards or engines I could buy and drop back into this thign.

    I bought a remote for my door locks. I didn't have one at all. I tried to program it, but it has to be programmed by the dealer. If I buy a second one, I should be able to program it directly from the other one, correct?

    Why don't you get under one of the pre-2008 vehicles and take a look at the suspension. Now compare it to a new car so-called suspension.

    Good day,
    eagleeye suggested that you might be able to help me with an interchange question:

    I currently have a 2006 Outback Limited (EJ253 / 4AT / 250K miles) and have an opportunity to acquire a 2009 Legacy (EJ253 / 4AT? / 80K miles). If i wanted to swap the newer engine into the older car, are there specific (electronic) components that must be taken off of the 2006 engine and put on the 2009 to use the Outback's existing ECU & wiring harness?

    Sincere thanks.
