elguajefranklin Posted October 4, 2018 Share Posted October 4, 2018 I was hoping i could get some help with my car , i have been looking for a solid answer and i have been given a ton of different information some one told me to come to this site and some one would for sure be able to help me . I bought a 2005 subaru legacy gt turbo 5 speed auto about 4 months ago the engine in that care had 170k miles, the head gaskets went out on it so i ordered a an engine from a company online , the engine takes a month to arrive and once it arrives the mechanics at jdm import shop in california checked the engine and it turns out that engine is in very bad shape leaking oil and the head gaskets where going out .... , so i called the company that sold me the engine and will get a refund of my money. I let the owner know that i was desperate and needed to get my car running asap the used engine i boight took one month for me to get and i let the owner at the shop know i could not wait another month and be car less. he told me he had a 2.0L engine in his shop and that it would work in my 2005 subaru legacy . im pretty sure he told me " the 2.0L engine i have for you is non turbo but it should work with your car " i cant seem to find any information online i have been searching for the entire day today and i was told on a facebook group page im part of that " 85% of subaru engine are compatible with the 05 legacy gt car i have even the non turbo engine " im assuming if this is true then i will lose power due to the fact that i no longer have a turbo and honestly i dont care about that like i said i just need my car back . has any one done that before going from turbo to non turbo swap ? let alone a car that came with a 2.5L to a 2.0L swap ? wouldnt the ECU have issues when it detects a non turbo engine has been installed ? any help will be greatly appreciated . also this shop specializes in Japanese cars Specifically in Subarus so the 2.0L engine is for sure a subaru engine .
