dont forget the new radiator, fans, crossmember and other bits you'll need to do the conversion...

all in all a conversion will cost approx $6-7k to do it correctly.

good luck
No way, RS tranny works fine!
So do the fans, radiator and most of the other bits. Crossmember is required of course.

My tip is to find someone OTHER than a dealer who charges less for labor to work on the car and knows what they are doing, unless the New York area doesnt have any Subaru shops, which I highly doubt
