Is there anything else I need to know? Fan relay is also energized off of the other seat heater switch. I purchased the motor out of a Subaru Outback but it is an ej251 and does not have avls. There is a battery switch to energize and de energize the main relay injectors,coilpacks this is how you turn off the car. Thank you in advance for any advice! I gave up trying to do the wrench time myself, the uppipe alone looked like severe pain. The real difficulty lies in how to do this and keep it undetected by the wife. I'll take some pics over the weekend and post them.
I'm coming up on 200,000 miles on my odometer and I think it's time to swap in a turbo engine like the ej205 or something similar. I am moderately knowledgeable about my car and I know my way around under the hood, but I have never done a full engine swap and I don't know what it all entails. This Project took me 7 months to complete, hiring an electrical engineer to help me sort out the merge, but man is it fun. Did you swap the driver side camshaft gear 3. Oh the joy of having a Suby Toaster with 2 childseats in the back and various Happy Meal toys scattered about, yet be able to kill a 'Stang at a stoplight on my way to get groceries. Re: the 2006 Subaru Forester engine swap I have the exact same vehicle 1. Basically I was wondering if anyone could give me a good idea of a parts list and everything I'm going to need or if you could point me towards a thread on another forum where it's already been typed up! Sadly here in Colorado you cant find an xt cheaper than 8,000 but honestly that's still not too bad compared to what a swap would cost.
The body is covered by a layer of custom green Plasti Dip. Will the engine even fit? Body has 234k on it, but all suspension components replaced within the last 2 years. Google is bringing up like 20 different ones. . Rear strut tower bar is quick disconnect to use all of the trunk space with seats folded, really an awesome feature. For the turbo would suggest ordering oem or is there a good aftermarket brand I could look at for a better deal? Do I have to put the heads from the ej253 onto the block of the ej251 in order to make it work or can I just simply put the intake and Cam and crank gears on it along with the wiring harness and just leave the parts of the harness that go into the avls system unplugged rather than putting on the heads from the 253.
Would I have to pretty much rip the entire dash apart? The power comes on much more linear than I thought it would.

I guess pretty much the question is how can I do it and make it run these incidents are like Legos and they can be built several different ways some say that all I need is to switch the intake Cam and crank gears and wiring it harness over and just to tie off the parts of the wiring harness that would go to the heads and the avls. My good friend drives a 04 xt pushing 400 whp and he let me drive it the other night and that's what started all of this haha. My question is this the wiring harness that goes to the ej251 in the outback is way different than the wiring harness in the Forester due to the avls. Did you swap the wiring harness 5. The crossmember they used for the swap was the wrong model so it also needed modification.

Either way, my best advice to either of you is to come up with a budget and timeline, and then double both of them. Hello everyone, I drive a 2001 forester and I've done all of the bolt on mods that I can think of exhaust, headers, cai, etc and I'm still not satisfied. Nathan did an excellent job with the conversion and was quick to improvise a couple times when needed. Do you think the rest of the drive train can handle the power? I think it would be a fun project and figured I'd ask the major questions before I start really digging into research and tearing it apart.
Fuel pump is tied to a seat heater switch only on when on accessory or run, no accidentally leaving the fuel pump on when you get out! It is with a heavy heart that this ad is being created, but alas. There are many available turbos you can put on the car, 1k should do you well.

The engine came with the transmission so it should be all set, not sure yet if she has the pedals, slave cylinder etc. If you can find someone local - go with them. Mating it to a stock forester 5 speed isn't the best idea because of how much torque it has and how much you'll tune it to but it doesn't seem you'll do that.
It makes 265 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque on 19 psi of boost. Should the tranny be able to bolt right to where the auto was? I've done plenty of research online and from what i understand it will be mostly bolt on other than the ecu which I would have professionally wired.

Long story short, my girlfriend just bought a 2002 forester with 160k on it from my family for a pretty good deal as a second car.
I highly suggest it, it makes the car much more fun. Otherwise you're probably stuck with iwire. Shane would like to thank in Colorado Springs, Colorado for their help and support.

This engine was freshly rebuilt according to the previous owner, and pulls, sounds, and feels great mated to a 5 speed in this chassis as opposed to a bulky automatic svx.
