Hello, a bit offtopic, but maybe it helps....
Don't have a clue about the head gasket, but please use the OEM intake mainfold gasket.
The OEM Subaru are double layer with metal reinforcement, other gaskets on the market are bad quality compared to the Subaru ones.

Also, the new gaskets - with proper care- ie no overheating with low coolant- should be good for at least 150k miles, so divide the cost per mile for a way to consider the value. The oem only intake gaskets are part of this...

Fell pro Perma torq , no need for warming up and re torqueing . follow the three torque sequences , then add a final step using 50 ft lbs .

I will have my heads resurfaced.
Also when tearing down the engine i found out the oil separator was leaking.
The corkgasket was failing in the bottom.
Can i use another a regular gasket material with some sealant pn both side?

Usually we just throw away the cork stuff and use straight RTV. Our current favorite libation WRT sealant is ThreeBond 1217H. Nissan has the best price on it here in the US.

Crap i say...so i might need a timecerts or v-coil.
But can i reuse the hedgasket or must i replace it?
Posted 16 March 2017 - 05:24 AM
There is very little substantive data otherwise I think. Everyone said get new one when I had a similar issue with an EJ gasket though those are different materials.
Posted 16 March 2017 - 05:57 AM
I did not remove the head just open all the bolts like 30-40° an retight.

You can reuse the gasket as long as the engine has not been heat cycled and the graphite composite has not bonded to any of the surfaces. Part of the process of installing EJ head gaskets has them being torqued and then loosened completely before final torque is applied.

Headgaskets was installed and heads resurfaced ,engine runs but have this timing adjusting problem.
Today i noticed water on the oilcap.
Wth i think not again, second time i replaced the headgaskets and the problem is coming back again.
Heads look good with no visible cracks.
Is there somwhere else water can leak in to oil?
