Have an 06 outback 2.5i (non-turbo), with a cracked driver side cylinder head. One cylinder has 2 cracks between the spark plug hole and both intake valve seats, the other cylinder has 1 crack between the spark plug hole and an intake valve seat.
Looking to get a replacement cylinder head, but would like to know what fits.
Subaru parts say it fits a handful of 06-07 outback/legacy models only (no forrester, impreza, etc).
I know 05 won't work, because 06 has the AVLS rockers, and assemblies that need to bolt into the head.
I've also seen some warnings with the exhaust manifold. I have the 3 stud exhaust manifold, but there are some variations out there with 4 studs
According to this post, only the casting and cams changed for 08-09 outbacks/legacys, so those should fit fine.
Looking at part numbers (drivers side head):
11063AB27A - 06-07 Outback / Legacy - "V25" head
11063AB43A - 08-09 Outback / Legacy - "T25" head
11063AB310 - 06-07 Impreza / Forester ??
11063AB430 - 08-11 Impreza / 08-10 Forester ??
