I need to change the head gaskets (overheating-exhaust in cooling system) AND the lifters (they dont keep the oil pressure) AND the connecting rod bearings (big knocking noise). What could be the biggest problems and mistakes? Do you have any advise ? thanks
Have you considered a rebuilt engine from CCR?

With the lifters not holding pressure, and the rod knock I'm betting you are not getting oil pressure, which means that you will likely find that other parts have been eaten as well.
The biggest mistake you can make here is opting to rebuild this engine instead of getting a rebuilt one from CCR or someplace similar.

CCR is the way to go: you might want consider the 95 2.2 from them as it's a rock solid engine from Subaru and a direct bolt in.
thanks for the advice. i guess i'll consider a CCR. How much coul it be???
