Default 2011 outback 3.6 power adders??

So my fiance wanted to buy a new outback and since its going to be our nicest shared car i asked her to upgrade to the 3.6L 6 cylinder so i get some enjoyment from driving the granny car. I was wandering if anyone knows if its worth spending any money for power adders. Intake, exhaust, ecu tuning etc. I know a lot about my ej20 in my wrx but nothing about these boxer 6's. Also wandering if anyone has spent money on rims or anything that might improve the looks. Pics would be sweet

If you're interested in making power above stock, it's much, much easier if you get the EJ25. You'll have a turbo Leggy making 400+ bhp for under $1500.

its always worth it, just finding parts for that car might be kind of hard, i know rallitek has a lw crank pulley and a rear sway bar kit for a little added stiffness, id just check the usual subaru sites and see what they got to offer, good luck id like to see how this goes.....

Finding parts for the chassis is easy; making power on the 3.6 will be hard because so few people are doing it.

small n/a engines do not typically respond very well to power adders. v8's are responsive, but it's hard to extract more power out of the smaller 4 cyl or v6 types .. get a turbo model.

Not worth throwing a buncha bolt-ons on unless you can tune that ECU. If you can find someone who can, then the world is yours! Subaru ECUs don't play well with bolt-ons in general terms.

I would love to do an intake/header + tune on my EZr 3.6L. Beyond the fact that the car makes the same amount of HP/tq on regular oct then the old 3L h6 made on premium. I know there is power left on the table!

And the sound of an uncorked H6.... can't beat that (well unless you had an exotic)
