2005 Outback 2.5 engine swap

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I'm new here. Have a 2005 Outback wagon with a 2.5 that is dead. Broke the timing belt. Picked up a 2.5 from JDM in chicago. Need help with the install. Motor is in and runs but generates no power. New engine has tgv valves old engine did not. Hoping some of you can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for the help.

Search for JDM swap threads here, there were a few that swapped turbo motors but I do not recall reading about non-turbo swaps here.



Also try subaruoutback.org, there are people there who wrench a lot.



Good luck.
