Does anyone know a good source for engine gasket kits for the 2,5l twin cam?
I'm getting sticker shock from what I've found so far.
$250.00 for a 34 item kit which is mostly rubber O Rings.

Just a thought... You might contact CCR Inc. I don't know if they would sell you a "kit", but you can ask. Or they may be able to direct you to someone.

the engine gasket kit includes a lot more than just rubber gaskets - it has all the intake, exhaust, and head gaskets. i ordered the one for the 97 and it was well worth it and it renewed all the seals. i imagine the one for the 96 is very similar if not identical.

parts list:

i paid $172 at 1stsubaruparts.com, but it does leave out a few key gaskets, namely the left and right valve cover gaskets ($7.50 ea) and the 4 spark plug hole gaskets ($6 ea). well worth it overall.
