My 1998 Engine EJ20J hasitates, can ECU be reprogrammed or do i have to change it to higher version?

Hello,I had the same problem with my 1998 2.0 Forester,I tried a lot options:
(other spark plugs,new sparkplugcables,other ignition coil,replacing the knocksensor,another camshaft sensor,reset the ECU on a Subaru select monitor,"it doesn work with an universal scantool" using ron98 petrol instead of ron95),but no satisfiing result.
At least i bougt on E-Bay a new ECU ,an 22611AD311 in stead of the AD310,
The AD311 has an software update and now the engine runs smoother and the hasitation is practically gone.
But you can trie a reset first,you can also do it yourself,
Disconnect the both batteryclams set the ignitionswiths on with the key and push the brake for 5 seconds.Then connect the battery and try.
Good luck with it

Engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.
