I think I would be checking with other non-dealer Subaru mechanics... the quote for my 2.5 99 obw was $900, but I never had the job done. Although, still a wad o' dough, it's quite a bit better than $2400... This was by folks that ONLY work on Subarus
ouch car overheating like mad and did everything under the sun but fix the head gaskets, subaru took one look and determined that it was the head gaskets and now its gonna cost 2400$ to get it fixed. i was going to ask in regards to loosing heat from the heater is this a direct result of blown head gaskets? also does subaru warentee their work thanks

2,400 sounds high. you can find another 2.2 liter impreza outback motor for less than a thousand. if you drove the car for any length of time with bad headgaskets that's not good for the rod bearings and other internals. water mixes with oil and continuous driving like that is not good for motor.

CCR Engines Inc. has a good rep on this site for the dollar range you mentioned and you get a totally rebuilt engine for probably less than what you were quoted. You get a 36K/3 year warranty on the engine top to bottom.
The above link has opinions on merit of rebuild or HG alone.
