My friends dad picked up a 05 forester ll bean. The guy before him put in a different motor in it and it hasnt ran right since. On the intake manifold there is this plastic mechanism thingy. Ive never seen it before on any of the subarus ive worked on. I was thinking it is some emmision valve. Anyone know what it is? There is one on every intake runner.

Kinda hard to see from my phone, but it looks like a tumble generator valve.

Those are normally found on turbo'd Subies. If they're not properly actuated (along with quite a few other differences) it's no wonder it isn't running. It sounds like your dad bought someone's failed project.
