H4 has t-belts which need peoridic maintence. H6 nope!
H4 is better on gas (which is cheaper because you can use reg. unleded)
Honestly it is a toss up in my book. But, since it is a subaru it is a good choice.
Me: I bought an 02 back in 2002 brand new and got the H4 but that was only b/c I demanded a 5 speed. If I could have bought an H6 with a sick shift...who knows....
BTW, the engine is Horizontally opposed not a "V" hence the "H".

Neither car will be winning any streetlight Oplympics. FWIW I talked to the owner of an H6 OBW (with 6 bikes on it, two on the roof and four on a hitch carrier) and he did not feel it was worth the extra money.

True enough, but how many people were reporting head gasket problems roughly four years ago? I've yet to meet an H6 onwer with more than 75,000 miles on the car.
that everyone I have met with an H6 says no problems with the engine at all. The H6 seems to have been engineered to have no head gasket problems.

Drive them both, the h6 v6 the turbo, the power is always there, but it comes on in a lazy sort of way. The n/a H4 seems to have plenty of power unless your towing something, then the 6 would come in handy.
