Q: 01 LL Bean Outback - EG33 swap for EZ30

Hey, long time viewer, first time poster.

quick question.

Would a Subaru SVX EG33 Motor swap into a LL Bean EZ30 spot?

I know with enough money/time anything is possible, but what i mean is, does it line up with out having to move other things around.

I don't have any experience with the motor but I have the following thoughts

1. Subaru went with a chain driven system with the EZ30 to allow it to fit in the Outback engine bay. The EG33 has a timing belt but I don't know its dimensions.

2. The exhaust ports on the EG33 are completely different and you would need the EG33 headers and Y pipe.

3. Sensor and ECU incompatibilities will need to be resolved.

Why are you interested?
