I don't see why you guy's have a hard time find a radiator for a automatic. I just did a google search ane found this place with a live chat. Read from the bottom up.

Chuck : No problem. I'll have our Subaru tech give you a call in a couple minutes-- What's your first name, area code and phone number?
You : No thanks, I think I have all the info I need now, I'll see if I can copy and paste this info in his thread on the forum. You have been a great help Thank You
Chuck : There are a couple of different radiators, ranging in price between $99.00 and $299.00. We can get you wholesale rates on labor, assuming you went with our installation centers. That's about 1/3 what you'd pay at the dealer. Would you like me to get you an exact labor quote?
You : I don't want it, but I will relay this link to the online buddy so if he wants he can contact you guys.
Chuck : Your price is coming. Looks like that is a really complicated fit. I'll just quote you the most likely 1 of the 3 possible parts -- Or you're welcome to talk to one of our Subaru techs to be 100% sure. What's your Zip Code and how soon would you need it?
You : just the part, to be honest, its for a friend on the forum who say's he can't find a radiator for a automatic.
Chuck : sure. Do you want quotes on just the radiator -- or installation too?
You : Can you cive me a price for both, for a Legacy GT with a automatic tranny
Chuck : OE style is made by the same manufacturer as the original radiator. Aftermarket is brand new and built to specs of the original but by another manufacturer. (Both come with a lifetime guarantee.) Which would you prefer?
You : it's really a 2007 but I don't think there is a difference in the 05-09's It's a 2.5L or EJ255 which is the turbo model
Chuck : OK. Would you prefer quotes on an OE certified or aftermarket radiator?
You : 2.5 turbo EJ255
Chuck : Do you know the engine size of your 2006 Subaru Legacy?
256,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
