OBDII has stricter restrictions. You can't put an older JDM motor in and pass emissions as they plug the machine into the cars OBDII port. With OBDI they can not do this and therefore it is a piece of cake to run an older JDM motor and not get hassled by the man.

well, im pretty sure i heard it depends on what production yours was part of in 96...someone correct me if im wrong but i heard from a friend only the latter part of the production year 96 was switched to odb2...

so that would mean it is still possible to have a 96 with odb1 if it was built early 96?

yes, many other manufacturers like DSM and Toyota did the switch in 95.

Subaru started the switch from obd1 and obd2 in MY95, legacy's were obd2 in MY95. By MY96 ALL Subaru's were OBD2
