It a nutshell, what you ask in your last sentence can't easily be done.
It would be cheaper and more reliable to sell yours and buy an XT, before trying to upgrade yours into an XT piece by piece.
2003 Outback 2.5 wagon: "Kaylee". 157,000 and counting.
Mods: 2004 Forester XT shift knob, Fumoto oil drain valve, HIR1 high beam upgrade. Also: More rust than I care to think about.
2002 L.L. Bean Limited 3.0 Outback wagon: "Mal". 103,000 and counting.
Mods: Scangauge II, Fumoto oil drain valve, and a decent bit of fixing up to do.
