Don't know if that's enough to have to make the holes in the intake a bit oval to fit correctly. the tolerances aren't that tight. Hmm. Keep us updated. Good info to know.

No issues. I just tried it, and the size of the intake holes are large enough to cover .020 - at least that part worked out well. BTW - the FSM says .020 is the maximum you can remove, so it makes sense that the manifold fits - it was designed that way. The question is how did Subaru arrive at that figure? Was that the maximum you could do and still fit the manifold, or was there some other more mechanical reason for picking that number? If ovaling out the manifold holes was all that was needed, .035 would give me close to 9.5 compression without the need for piston replacement. Hhhhmmm....
IIRC, watch for the intake fitment when you reassemble, it's going to be tight.
