I just priced a new longblock for a h6 from 1stsubaruparts.com
list price is $7360.82, and they sell it for $6801.40
Anyone wanna attempt that swap should know the cost of these motors, and used prices arent much better, IF you can find one.

Junkyard I frequent sells 6 cylinder engines minus accessories for $175 plus core. Much better than $7,000 :grin:

have one shipped, they're easily found for $1,500.

has to be rare to find one of those in the cheaper yards. if they're only getting $175 for an engine they certainly didn't pay much for the car - these cars are expensive even when wrecked though - so it's not going to be "common".

another option is getting the entire car, finding a wrecked one for instance.

I am going to be doing an h6 in my 1st gen legacy.

INHO you'll want a whole car. This gives you the ecu, wiring, etc... Stuff that to piece together is possible but time consuming and maybe more expensive.

You can get decent svx's for a G or less...

Bought one here in Colorado for the rally car for 500 with all the pieces we needed except motor mounts which were destroyed in the collision the car had been in.
