Default Timing belt change on 2003 6.0

I have a 2003 legacy Outback with the 6.0 It now has 105000 miles on it. I helped my son change his timing belt,idlers,water pump ect on his 2004 WRX. My question is it much different for the dual over head cam of the 6.0 than his 2.0

Also where is a good place for me to order all the parts I need to change timing belt,iders,water pump,thermostat, drive belt.

Have watched the videos of the timing belt change. Very good video just wanting to know what the difference would be or is there a video for the 6.0

Thanks for any and all help.

Paul

Does the 6 cyl have a belt? I thought it had a timing chain on the 3.0 and need not be changed.

Rally Monkey you were correct. Never heard of that till you replied so I did some more searching with the question of belt or chain on 6.0 and yes it does have a chain.
Well that sounds really good so now I can use that money for something else.
PARTY!!!!!!

Thanks for the info Rally Monkey.
This site is great!

I have never heard of a 6 liter Subaru. You have a 3.0L which has a timing chain.

Blackfang my mistake in calling it a 6.0 you are right as far as the 3.0 But the 3.0 is a 6 cylinder.
3.0L DOHC H-6 cylinder engine.

This engine has an aluminum crankcase, double-overhead camshafts (dohc) chain-driven with four valves per cylinder. The timing chain does NOT have a replacement schedule - suggested replacement of the rubber belt on the 2.5L 4 cyl is 105,000 miles.
The 6 cylinder uses Direct Ignition with an individual ignition coil for each cylinder so there is no distributor or sparkplug wires.
The H6-3.0 produces nearly 30 percent more horsepower and torque than the 165-horsepower 2.5-liter H-4 and is only 0.8 inches longer. Premium fuel, 91 octane, is recommended.
212 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm
210 lb.-ft. of peak torque @ 4,400 rpm

174 lb.-ft of torque @ 2,200 rpm

I guess we all learn some thing new now and then.
