craigslist. looking for a car just like yours being sold for next to nothing with terminal head gaskets.

buy it, hog it for parts or put your own EJ25D in it if you like it better.

(legacy / legacy outback/ impreza / forester ,...may all have different gear ratios ....so be careful with what you buy).

use car-part.com to find interchangeable options. I don't know enough about the differences so I bought the same number when I needed one for my 99 OBW.

I do believe that in 99 there was a Phase II 4EAT (added the external filter)

pretty sure a LGT uses the same trans as the same year outback with 4.44 diff ratio.

and yes people seem to want stupid prices for used Subaru transmissions, i can get a good manual transaxle for my Porsche for $150 all day.

Having been cautioned that one has to get exactly the right tranmission (by part number), I just went through this with my '99 Forester.

The answer was: Patience. I waited until exactly the same (year) car appeared in the local you-pull yard, and got myself down there without delay. Working by myself it took the better part of a day to drop it (I was going easy on a shoulder that'd been operated on earlier in the year), and having no way to test it beforehand, bolted it up into my car. I threw a seven and it's been running perfectly since. Price tag: $130 (Canadian, so about a hundred USD).

To do this, though, I had to be willing and able to let it sit for a year while I waited for the right donor to show up (with body damage).
