I have the opportunity to take my dad's engine out of his 01 Outback and swap it into my 03 Outback. Ill spare everyone the reasons why, that's a long story!!

I know my engine is stamped ej25. I also know that my 03 has a map sensor and my dad's 01 has a maf sensor. Other than that, everything else is the exact same.

Could I take his motor and put it right into mine if I use my existing intake or would I need to swap anything else out?

Yes to using your intake and harness. Check the driver side cam gear and crank reluctors. I don't think there's a difference for the cam and crank sensors, but it's been a while and can't recall.
The teeth on the crank and the bank 2 cam gears that trigger the sensors.
