I have a 2007 Forester XT and there is a 2.5 DOHC engine out of a 99 legacy GT for sale in my area for $50 with a lower engine knock. I was thinking of buying it and building it for an upgrade motor when we retire our FXT from daily service. Does anyone know if this is compatible/upgradeable to work in the FXT?

The '99 LGT DOHC engine is non-turbo and basically the same as the '98 Forester DOHC engine - inherently unsuitable for turbocharging by design (compression ratio, open deck as opposed to the closed deck design on the OEM turbo engine blocks).
