I’ve got a 2006 outback and the stock engine is on its last legs. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to do an engine and manual trans swap. I want to have some sideways fun on the dirt roads without it being completely un-drivable in normal circumstances. Engine/transmission recommendations?

You can't easily drop in a different engine than what your car was designed for and expect everything to work. The ECM, transmission, wire harness, fuel system, cooling system, and many other things expect you to have the Gen 3 H4 2.5 in there.

Now you want to have some fun with it on dirt, you can play around with the suspension a bit.
