Well juice, I did not make it to the 0.25 million mark. ~220,640 at the time of its demise:

And what is that piercing the driver side of the windshield? Looks like a nose dive then flip and roll?

So sorry to see the above, one less fellow '96 on the road. Just hope everyone is okay. I could pickup the '96 milage mantle but my OBW only has 89,000 miles. I am sure there are others out there with more. I will still be addressing questions to you knowing you had been there before me.
#6635 of 8657 replaced engine won't start

My brother just replaced the engine on our 99 subaru outback with a newer engine. The newer installed engine ran fine previously. He has been working on cars for years and has never run in to this problem.
The problem is, it will crank, but won't start.
Does anyone have an idea of what it can be?

Ah, that is just all the pieces of the front bumper assembly that were picked up from the scene.... seemed a convenient place to put them.
Basically, another driver forced me off the road, we went down a short embankment where the nose dug in and spun us left, then it rolled over. From the damage, I almost think it did a pirouette about the nose as it came over, but it felt quite "soft" while it was happening. No injuries other than a about a dozen minor cuts to my hands as I exited/navigated the vehicle - my passenger has a small cut on his knee from a zipper on his pants. I was able to get his door open and get him out, so he did not have to crawl through all the glass. Considering the event and the damage to the car, we came out of it as best as possible. For that I am thankful.

Well, assuming that you did not dig into the newer engine at all (so no question about whether timing is off, etc), it might be a sensor compatibility problem with the 99's ECU. You might consider replacing the timing and knock sensors on the newer engine with the ones that were on the 99's engine.

No doubt! Glad you and your passenger are ok, and kudos to the cabin for keeping you safe!
Was the other driver celebrating New Year's while driving?

Wes, glad to hear you and your passenger are safe! Cars can be replaced, but still, it hurts to lose a reliable vehicle.
Is this the one that you replaced the head gaskets on about a year ago?
