Hey guys,
Finally making some progress on my 2002 outback turbo project. Im ready to get the timing belt put on the engine and get it in the car soon. The block is a phase 1 EJ22 (pulled from 2nd gen legacy) and the heads are from the stock 2002 EJ25. I am confused as to what tensioners, idlers, and belt it needs. Ive heard to match the belt to the head, but as far as the tensioner goes, the two engines use different styles. I assume just get a ej22 water pump and the idlers may be the same, im not sure if they differ between the two engines.

Get a timing belt kit for 2000-2012 EJ25 SOHC
If your block has the old style tensioner, change the tensioner bracket.
Thanks so much. I ordered the correct belt and i am just going with a 2.2 kit for the original tensioner and idlers. I had no clue that the brackets would swap but i looked at my 2.5 and it sure will. Oh well, hopefully i wont have to dig into it again.
