His all I have just imported a 2004 subaru legacy estate from Japan. 

When I picked up from the port there was a ticking sound but I thought it was OK and when I got to Basingstoke the car just lost per completely.so had to get it recovered all the ay home.

Does anyone know of a good subaru mechanic in London please?

Gutted for you, that your already looking for a replacement engine . Fairly sure the legacy long blocks (bottom end and heads) are the same as a impreza of the same phase /year . This might help widen your options, as there's a lot more impreza turbos being broken and you would just need to fit your twin turbo inlet and auxiliaries. 

Matt baker at mbdevolpments on f.b is a reputable scooby breaker on f.b and would probably be able to confirm what engines would fit .

Best of luck getting it sorted and hope you can start to enjoy driving it soon
