I'm pretty sure it runs sideways and they both end up dumping into one and then out the single outlet on the bottom.

Look folks, I am really tired of the negative comments. I don't really need to hear any more "it won't work" comments. If you don't have any technical info or help, then just don't bother posting. I'm trying something new and I will do whatever I can to make it work. Period.
Doesn't it just p*ss you off so bad when everybody starts to tell that there is no way in hell this will work? I mean I would understand if this was just an idea and you haven't spent money on it yet but you got what at least a couple grand in it. And now all of a sudden people are telling you these holes in your idea like this swap has been unsuccessfully done before. Just wait you'll see before you know it u will be coming home from your emmissions test ready to rub it in every persons face that not only doubted you would get the car running but also pass emmissions.

Good luck with the swap can't wait to see that beast road worthy

P.S. oh yeah by the way getting your local sub dealship to program a key won't be hard. if they tell you no at first ask to talk to the subaru tech and tell him that you will pay an extra 1/2 hour (40 bucks est.) for labor charges to do it.

I'm not looking to rub anyone's nose in anything. I'll just be happy when it is completed and can help others to do the same swap with my experience and knowledge gained from this project.

Okay, we went by the dealership today and found out some additional parts that will be needed:

Radiator (from previous H6)
Radiator overflow tank
Even though the bolts for the fans are different, we might be making a custom bracket to fit my fans to the H6 radiator.

Powersteering pump & reservoir (the reservoir is connected remotely to pump)

Alternator...we might be able to use the one I have, but the pulley will be needed b/c it is 6 tooth and mine is 5.

A/C pump will most likely have to be from the new H6, because the brackets on mine are completely different. Also, newer A/C pumps are made by Denso as opposed to the older Calsonic ones.

Idler pulleys that go with the accessories. (all one belt *see pic below*)




The new H6 uses a returnless fuel rail design, so I will need the Fuel Pressure Regulator setup from the newer car. We might have to rig up a place to put the fuel filter, because the new H6's filter is in the tank.

We're also looking into what pedal assembly we'll have to use. From the searching I've done, there is a difference between the Legacy, Forester, and STi TBW pedels. I don't know if the plugs are different (if so, we'll use the Legacy pedal) or if the fitment is different (FXT or STi would be more likely to fit).


That's all I've got for now. I will post updates as they come.

Default Damn, someone beat me to it..... :-/

Nice work so far. I'm a bit dissappointed, since I wanted to be the "first" to do this kind of swap on a daily-driver (which is why I'm not counting the Lina Racing guys). T

hen again, essentially everything has been done under the sun, so I'm just happy to be seeing it done, and hopefully what you've learned will help me when my turn comes to do my thing. :-)

By the way, I'm planning to do this to my (GC8) '99 Impreza 2.5 RS

I'm glad others want to do this swap. Like I mentioned earlier, we'll be documenting things very closely so that we can assist others who would like to follow in my footsteps. Having smooth, reliable power without a turbo is my goal and this engine will be perfect.

That is pretty much my goal. I'm currently working on teaching myself ECU/EFI theory, so i can create and modify my own custom fuel maps for whatever engine. It's a *lot* of work, but the experience and knowledge will be worth it in the long run.

If you would, keep me updated on your progress, as I'm very interested to see how it all goes.

I've been looking at pictures of the older H6 vs. the newer one and the accessories (A/C, P/S, ALT) are setup very similar, if not exactly the same. If that is so, it would be likely that I could get those parts from junkyards and have them bolt up just fine. I might run by the dealership (again) tomorrow and check it out for myself. If the older accessories will work, it will save a lot of money and/or effort.

Okay, I got all the parts listed above. I am ordering an XT/STi throttle-by-wire pedal tomorrow and then we should be good to go. I'm hoping to start the project by Friday.

Yes. My apartment is getting harder to navigate due to the ever increasing number of parts.

Reach the 10K mark on part cost yet? Or just over 5K for all that?

Actually, I'm right under 4k. I still have to purchase exhaust materials(pipes, flanges, resonators, high-flow cat, muffler, etc), intake materials (tubing, filter, maf adapter), but I think I should still be able to keep it under 5k total. It hasn't been easy keeping the cost down, but thanks to discounts and thrifty shopping I am not completely broke.
