my bank 1 cat is rattling and has an exhaust leak throwing a p0420 code, bran new o2 and a/f sensors all around too done by me because of a p0420 code about 6000 miles back. mechanice definatly isolated my current code to my bank 1 cat being shot and their is also a leak in that bank 1 header. ideally id like to just replace both headers, because my bank 2 header looks rusted, with something that will hopefully make it another 3-5 years. love my h6 obs. id buy new headers from subaru if money wasnt so tight right now, 1600 is the asking price online for new headers. i have tried car-part.com and i wasnt able to find anything that fits my engine, their is no subaru outback to choose from i have to choose legacy. their are some 2000-2004 subaru outback parts listed under the legacy but no mention of the h6 3.0 engine, im off tomorrow and plan on making a few calls, you wouldnt happen to know the number and name of these nj slavage yards? i live in de, its just a short drive over the bridge to get anywhere in nj from here. my h6 obs is in the shop now im just tring to locate a new headers at a reasonable price so she breaths right again. im stuck in my wifes yellow nissan xterra for now while she is on maternity leave.... i may have transportation but i still feel out of a ride walking up to a yellow suv.
bank 1 header is about 650 new online and the bank 2 header is about 900. i may just get a new bank 1 header and replace bank 2 header when i can afford it. but id rather just keep this down to a minimal expense until my wife is back to work. bad timing really.
cny dave, thanks for telling me to refine my search to engine. i found a bunch of listings for the 3.0 engine all with in a couple hours drive round trip of me, one thats only 16 miles from me. hopefully one of these places has a pair of headers in decent shape, thanks again bro. huge help.
