Your posts hurt my head. Not to be rude, but please use some punctuation and maybe others will be more inclined to read your posts and reply..

the h6 is like the hardest swap evers there are plenty of threads about other swaps that you might find useful but i don't think you have even looked yet becuase after reading yuor first post it seems like you aren't sure what you are looking for so you should really use the search because that will give you a lot more info on how swaps work and what is necessary to complete them but i don't know if you areup for the task becuase it deosn't seem like you are willing to do your own research on this forum and there are lots of other forums you could go check out too and there are lots of threads on here pertaining to swaps and other necessary work that you will have to consider when doing a project like this. k thanks bye.

If you can shell out the $1500 for the wiring merge, I say go for it.
the mechanicals are the easy part, as i am learning now.

Ill tell you right now, ive been researching an H6 swap for months now, its not worth it, its an UBER pain in the a$$. A turbo H4, wrx or sti even, is a better option. Also way more part support, EZ30 and EG33 parts are hard to come by, EZ30 stuff is stupid expensive, and just about every EG33 SVX motor has tons of miles on it, good luck..

H-6 swaps are pretty cool, though, you have to admit. :D Thing is, yeah, VERY uncommon, not a lot of support. Though, the SubaruOutback.org and LegacyGT.com crowd would be helpful.

lol ya i know a wrs or sti motor swap would be the fastest easyest way but thats just it, its the easy way so other ppl have dont it already and its almost common place, so you dont really got that wow factor and while i know thats not the most important part in a car build, you have to admit that its a big plus when you get it right, but ya ive been thinking and im prob just going to go a whole different route, ive got a few other motors lying around and i got a crazy swap idea =) ill get some pics up of the build when i start thx for all the advice everyone

mechanicals is the easy part. but wiring is the bitch work. seriously... if you plan to do the wiring you better put your effort and sweat into it.. because once you start splicing.. you'll be in the deep neck of them woods!.. and by then.. you cant be like :monkey: this. i say get it done professionally
