Anyone know the the correct head nut order for removal and installation of the heads on a EA81? I need the torque specs as well...

Hey Shadman.

Here is what your looking for: Use Felpro head gaskets. go +5 ft. lbs. over on last torque value with these gaskets and you don't have to do a re-tourque as specified in Subaru book. Coat the cork valve cover gaskets with the Grey RTV, let dry and then install. I coat and hang from hooks till dry.

***Enjoy bonding with the roo.
