Hello All!  I have a 2015 Forester (FB25B w/CVT and PZEV) with a seized engine.  I have the opportunity to buy a 2018 FB25B with 13k miles on it....and wondering if any of you can give me either the push toward to away from trying this swap.  It seems like swapping some of the components over is pretty clear....but the TGV seems to be the issue that get a little tricky.  Anyone want to offer an opinion on if I should try this?  Here are the engine codes:

FB25B CYHZF (2015 seized engine)
FB25B XYHUA (2018 donor engine)

Also - while I'm here - any thoughts on the ability to swap CVTs?

TR580GH WAA (donor transmission)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

It's pretty disheartening to not get a single response on this.  Is anyone one this forum?
