  1. Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    Hi All -- I am having one bananas **** of a time figuring out how to get a car play system into this car. It seems like it is impossible. Has anyone done a swap and can provide any parts, etc. I don't get why this is so difficult. But it seems like there are a huge number of issues doing this...
  2. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I've swapped my USDM 2008 Outback 3.0R LL Bean from a 5EAT to a 6 speed manual. I think I'm the first one fully working with US emissions and cruise control? Why? Because I want to. How? Swap in the drivetrain (Trans, rear diff, etc) from a 2007 JDM Legacy 3.0R Spec B. Remove the TCM and...

    Hi all, New to the forum. I recently came into an 09 outback 2.5 n/a with 219,xxx on it in really good condition. One of the only issues to fix that i have found so far is that it has a broken rear passenger spring (or strut) not sure of the verbiage yet. I have been searching and reading a...

    Has anyone seen, done, or heard of a manual transmission swap into a 2015-2017 outback 3.6r limited? I’ve looked into different swap options like a 2015 wrx or a older 3.6r outback, possibly a legacy. Let me know!

    Would I be possible to swap the steering wheel from an 09 wrx to an 05 outback? I have someone in my area that’s parting out their wrx and the steering wheel on my outback is worn down.
  6. Subaru Outback Versus The Competition
    Soooooo, I was off-roading with my 2013 outback and I accidentally blew a piston rod😂 I’ve been doing a lot of research regarding alternative engine swaps and I’ve got it down to either buying a new stock engine or swapping it for the fa20f. Now I’ve got the 2.5 with the cvt transmission. Will...

    Hello folks, Thanks for your help with this thread: RIP 2013 Outback 3.6R EZ36D, Cylinder 2 head... $6k fix So, I found an engine with only 16k miles on it, but it's so very far from home (car is in Redding, CA, 3-4 hours north of me in San Francisco). The car looks good: It got...
  8. Forum Rules, New Member Information & Intro.
    I have a 2001 outback and the motor is knocking and I was looking to put something else in. A 350 small block is definitely not gonna fit (i tried to convince myself it would but the evidence for failure was just too much) what would be the best/easiest swap. I'm looking for more power than...

    I want to preface this post by saying first and foremost hello to all of you out there my name is Scrappy and this is my first post to this forum so sorry mods if it ended up in the incorrect place. A few days ago my wonderful wife bought me a 97 legacy outback for my birthday. Being the car...
  10. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    Hey all, first post here so sorry if this belongs somewhere else. I've been looking around for information about this, but can't find a solid answer to this. So, the 5MT in my wagon has given up the ghost, but my friend has a 5MT from a 98 Forester. I know mine is phase II while his is phase I...
  11. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I just upgraded to a 07 legacy outback from my first 2nd gen outback. The cvt transmission in it has a issue with the valve to the transfer case, making the front wheels not turn as well. I thought instead of having it torn apart I could maybe just replace it with a manual trans. I am not...
