replacing anEJ255 with an EJ20Y in a 2005 Outback
My wife is looking at a 2005 Outback. The current owner says he switched the original engine (an EJ255 with an EJ 20Y). What are the (if any) problems that may associated with this pertaining to performance, drivability, maintenance etc?
Most likely the car is a cobbled together piece of junk that has been raced and abused. If smog checks are an issue I have doubts it would pass.
