'00 & '01 OBW 2.5, AT, '95 jeep yj with galvanized frame, detroit locker, Super 35 axle kit, 4.88 gears, 2.5 5spd, 1964 Austin Healey Sprite basket case that will someday be subie powered
Noticed intake on the 01 ob has an air line coming off the idle air solenoid, and coming forward on the passenger side intake to another solenoid/valve with an electrical connector on it. Another air line goes from this to the forward bottom passenger side of the intake, right above the head. The forester doesnt have this. Should I swap out intakes when I swap the motor? Another thing- there's bottom tranny/engine bolts by the transaxle that are hard to get to. On a forester with AT, I had to pull axle shafts to get to them, but on a MT, ya dont even have bolts there. At least not on 98 forester. Will this be a prob with the outback engine swap? I hit a deer going 70mph, and ruined the entire front of the car, and busting timing covers. Was gonna swap motor since there's oil in the coolant overflow bottle. (since I before I bought the car, 3 months ago) Coolant has not migrated into the oil, and doesn't really get low. leaks oil from front seal or somewhere in front, badly. (also since before I bought the car) Since dealing with bad hg in subarus before, and noticing that headbolts were not really tight on either one, can I retorque and see if it works? Oil doesnt flood the overflow. Thinking of replacing front main seal and timing covers, and just running the motor for as long as I can, before swapping it out.
