ENGINE SWAP Forester 2.0 XT to Outback 2.5 - both Auto and LPG - Any problems envisaged???

Recommended Posts

I have a 2.5 Outback Auto 2008. Engine made clatter noise going round a roundabout but went quiet on the straight (so, of course I checked the oil). Next roundabout, same thing - and as I was cruising into a suitable place to stop, engine died. Dangerous 70mph (+) road - so was recovered by RAC. I also have a slightly crashed Forester 2.0 XT auto 54 reg. Is it worth using the engine from XT (new turbo) in the Outback? They are both LPG/petrol and both Auto. What issues/problems will I incur? Do I need to use the "brain" from XT? etc etc etc.

Many thanks
