I am looking to buy a subie - however I am having difficulty determining which engine is in the cars besides just believing the seller.

A lot of these cars on the market have been swapped - is there some way I can fairly quickly identify which engine is in the car? Measurements of some sort? An serial #?

Thanks.

Although a EJ25 could be both an N/A motor or turbo motor.

Thats true, but legacy turbos are hard to come by and aren't nearly as prevalent.

^^ same with ej22

Same with the 1.8 (n/a or ghetto boost) and the 2.0 (factory boost). The OP might not be able to tell the difference between NA or FI. I would hope one would be able to tell the difference though... even if there's very little working automobile / mechanical knowledge.
