need some help..new to subaru's

i just bought a 95 impreza with a blown motor..the po blew it up and didn't want anything to do with it..i guess the guy before the po did all the work and changed the motor at one time... the po said to get a 2.5 from a 98 because it has all 98 rs stuff on it and he thought the guy put an a motor from a 98 in it before..my question..is there a difference between motors from different years? any advice/help would be awesome....thanks

Hi mate,

I'm guessing that you are in the US. I know very little about the US modes I'm afraid, but as your car is a '95 it would originally have had either a 1.8 or a 2.2 engine. The 2.5 wasn't available until '98. There were also changes made to the 2.5 RS lump made for '99 models which raised power slightly. So there are several differences between the engines, and even between the 2.5 engines, but in terms of compatibility between models etc. I couldn't tell you.

For more info you could try here;
