When you installed the belts, did you start with the drivers side at the 12 o clock, install that belt, then rotate the engine so that the drivers side was at 6 and passenger side was at 12??? If not, this might be the root of your problem. (i am not the authority on the subject, but had to replace my belts not too long ago, and doing another set on another car right now, just need to find some other related parts first!)
I am sure others will chime in on the subject, but weekends are kinda slow.....be patient and someone will know exactly what the problem is.
Are you in the Salem over near LaCrosse, or the one in southeastern WI?

what kind of book are you using? Haynes and Chiltons can be semi useful for some things but leave a lot to be desired on things such as this. (have both of them myself, and still prefer to come here on most repair subjects)
There are a couple of us Wisconsinites here, but we are few and far between.
Again, welcome to the board!! and good luck with your Subie.

if they are put on backwards, plug wires 3 and 4 would be backwards, and you would only be running on 2 cylinders..
easiest way to check this is just swap plug wires 3 and 4.. it may run crappy for a minute or so due to plugs gettin fowled by not fireing correctly, but it clears up with a few revs..
this was a mistake i made and it cost me 3 days worth of headache
