View Full Version : Swapping a 99 2.2L engine into a 97 2.2L imprezza

Hello, I am new to the forum but have owned several subaru's through my life.

I have a 97 impreza 2.2L automatic the I purchased for my daughter with a bad engine. I was planning to rebuild the engine but came across a 99 impreza 2.2L with low miles that was damaged in an accident. I bought it thinking that I would move the low mileage stuff into the 97. I thought the 97 engine was the same but now that I have pulled one engine and started removing the other, I can see some ovbious diffeences with the intake manifold and harnessing.

I am curious if anyone knows what all I would have to remove out of the wrecked 99 can to put into the 97. Maybe it is easier to just rebuild the 97 engine but it still has a high mileage transmission.

Thanks for any advice.
