I have a 1999 Subaru Outback. I replaced the engine with a remanufactured engine from enginesrus. The old engine is in the process of being overhauled. I am now looking to buy another subaru from 96-99 with a bad motor to swap it for the one I have. I have seen a few 2.2 subaru's for sale with bad engines and not one 2.5. I live in South Florida, and Subaru's are scarce. I know the engine will fit in the chassis, I just need to know if the tranny from a 2.2 will fit my ej25 engine.

Thanks!

I too want to do the same and thank members with expertise give a detailed reply.
Please clarify what year of 2.5l engine will fit...can a Gen 2 2.5l engine mate with Gen 1 5MT?
Thanks!

if you are swapping engine, yes the 99 ej25 from an outback will bolt on to and run fine in a 95 - 98 ej22 auto trans car.

not all 99 ej25s will swap, those in 99 foresters are phase 2 engines and will not swap.

but if you a swapping a trans the rules are different.
