Hi everyone :)
I have a 97 outback wagon. ej25 dohc, 5 speed manual. A few months back we had a top-end rebuild done (new gaskets, heads machined, etc). Last week our 18 yr old son was driving it an it overheated. Looks very much like this engine is kaput. I've been reading a lot about replacing ej25's with an ej22. Would you recommend that as the way to go? I really don't want to be replacing the engine again for at least a couple of year, preferably never! lol
Please be gently, I'm a newbie both here and to mechanics :)
