home safe from new york and a quick question about heilcoils *updated*

Here some new you know you're addicted to subarus when:
you drive a beat up Toyato Corolla leaking gas 420 miles one way to get a subaru you've never seen.
you drive above suby 470 miles home (got lost), under it's own power.
You know your wife is getting addicted when:
she goes with you both ways
she says, lets trade my Toyota in on a 80's suby.
Ok so for my question....
anyone ever put heilcoil(spark plug hole fixer) in an ea82?

probably cost between 25-35 for parts, and the rest is silly simple
drill it out, thread it, blow/suck out the chips
insert the threads, crossthread your plug in
if you set that cylinder to the power stroke you have both valves
closed, makes it a bit less spooky when thinking about all those
little curly troublemakers

cleans up threads in a few turns, usually by hand.
might save you going through the helicoil toil.

- cost of heilcoil $0 (when you know someone who has em)
- cost of tools to put in heilcoil $0
- healing skinned knuckles $2 for triple antibiotic ointment
- Subaru with 3inch lift and 180K kept on the road - PRICELESS
