Hello Subie world, I recently started a new project. 94 loyale, 5spd, 214k, non turbo, beat and not maintained for a long time (by the looks of it)

First day

Posted Image

Drove it to my house, barely. bogs real bad in all rpms but 2.3k.

P.O. said it uses a quart of oil per week and that it needed new MAF and 02 sensors.

After driving it i can tell it needs a clutch real soon. Opened the hood and there is oil and gunk everywhere.

So since i have time, and a second car. My plan is to fix it up myself. This is a big project (for me). The most I have done before is simple stuff, brakes/oil etc.. I am sure I will need some help/advice so hopefully there are some good peeps on this board. :)

My first question is what is the best site for parts. Parts i know i need are clutch kit/ full engine gasket kit etc, MAF and 02 sensors..

Also the intake boot is torn so i will need to find one of those, Maybe junkyard..

Second Q is should i be looking at performance parts or upgrades? I plan to pull the motor to do the headgaskets and such, are there any common intake/engine/exhaust mods for the loyales. Not looking for it to be as fast as my wrx was, just want it to be reliable and able to climb mountain passes a bit stronger.

Rockauto.com has great prices. Pretty stellar customer service too... Ive had a few hiccups, but thats to be expected every now and then.

There arent *too* many mods, its a 90 HP car... But you can get torque cams from Delta Cams (your cams sent in, torque grind applied, sent back to you)
As for a REAL mod, EJ22 swap boosts you to about 135 horsepower but its a lot of work and wiring to be changed.

Alright, did some work last night. Motor is ready to come out. What do you guys use for an engine stand? O'reillys has one for $70. Good deal? I think i will just rent a engine hoist.
