  1. I have a 2001 Outback llbean edition with a bad engine. Have been having a hard time finding a used or rebuilt H6 engine. Somebody told me that there is a "kit" for swapping out the 6 cyl. engine for a 4 cyl. Is this true??? Has anyone heard of such a kit? If so where would I look for it? Thanks for your input.
  2. Morning! New user here, but not new to car repairs. So due to one issue which we thought was the catalytic converter but it was really the ignition coil, we are now at a lovely junction of exhaust issues. We had already taken the old cat off and purchased a new one (Evan Fischer brand, if you're curious). But the flange on the exhaust manifold was too rusted for a proper seal with the gasket. If we buttoned her up from back to front, the exhaust leak was at the cat/manifold junction; from front to back both the cat/man junction and the cat/resonator junction had exhaust leaks. So I took the cat back off and was cleaning up the exhaust flange which was rather rusted to get a better seal on it. But with further inspection, I also noticed that the flange itself was degrading- just losing bits due to rust. I was planning on using some of that QuikSteel stuff to build it up a bit around the edges. But... Would it be in our best interest to remove the heat shield on the manifold to inspect the y-pipe itself? I think it would be. He's arguing with me about it. We've already replaced the resonator and muffler last fall due to them rusting and breaking. Both of those were replaced with Evan Fischer brand parts as well; the boyfriend had the forethought to get the same maker for the cat as he did previously. Thanks for your time. If you need pictures, just let me know and I'll take some. Rachel
