Hello
Can anyone guide me to some posts or swap threads that explain what is required for this swap, I picked up a Forester XT with a bunch of miles on it, JDM in Orlando has EJ20x motors for about 700.00 bucks, I was thinking of getting one for the future if the swap is not too complicated.

Thanks in advance

George

I can't help you with the swap, but i did just pick up an 05 XT that had this swap already done. Seems to be fairly well done. I know i have the stock ECU still (per my mechanic) and there are no CEL codes related to the swap.
Hello
thanks for the response, I called the guys at JDM Orlando and asked about the mods needed and the guy told me I do not have to do any mods as long as I use all the accessories from my EJ25 including the turbo, basically just using the EJ20X as a long block, we will see what happens, I will post something as soon as I attempt the swap.

Thanks

George

Good luck! I'll definitely be interested to see that.

Any updates? My son and I are picking up a EJ20X from JDM Orlando tomorrow morning and planning on doing this swap in later Feb. We'll post lots of pics & comment along our journey.

The current engine is completely stock expect for a Cobb AP and has 256,000 miles.
