I'm trying to figure out what it would take to swap out the stock 2.5rs engine for a JDM legacy/forester 2.5 dohc non-turbo. I'm not trying swap it out for a turbo, I'm fine with the stock 2.5 and I'm racking up the miles with my commute and I'm considering my options when it comes time to replacing the engine.

i'll say stay sohc, it's so much easier to swap wires and spark plugs and you feel like there's so much more room in the engine bay, the power output is also the same for sohc and dohc, so there's no real reason to do this swap. rebuild yours and be happy.

I've been reading up on pulling out my ej251 and replacing it with an ej253. Seems like this would be the better option.
