NA 2.5 shortblock build

Can I use a NA 2.5 out of a 01 forester for a build in my 11wrx? Of course I am doing pistons, rods, bearings, pump, Cometic head gasket, acl race bearings and 8.3:1 compression

The blocks are different. The N/A is an open deck design, the turbo'd engines are semi closed. An open deck really isnt the best platform for boost.

Not a problem. Glad that you asked and didnt waste the time and effort (and money) in it just to be disappointed.
