Hello everyone :) New to the forum. I've got a 1999 Impreza 2.5 RS 5 speed manual EJ253 and a 2005 Forester XT automatic with an EJ255. I'm wanting to swap the EJ255 motor into the 2.5 RS. My question, is it possible to do the swap and what would need to be taken off the Forester, if anything ( wiring, modules, harness' ect.) to make it work in the 2.5 RS?

Ahh ok. Well aside from the wiring, pretty much everything else (speaking about engine related things) bolts up into your car.

The exhaust is a similar length but you may need an exhaust shop to adjust it slightly.

You'll want to keep the Forester XT around until you finish the project.

Yeah it will bolt up just fine. Electrically, you'll have to do the research on how to convert it.

I would highly recommend that. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for. A working turbo car on the other end.
