I get to SLC every once in a while, I could check it for you if you are in no rush. You might also look at www.nasico.com and Rocky Mountain Club and put a post there. Lots of SLC Subaru guys.
Thanks for you Service!

Depending on exactly what "made noises then quit" means, besides HGs that could also describe a timing belt failure. Hopefully not, because the 2.5L is an "interference" design. How many miles are on the engine? HGs might be worth putting in if the mileage is low enough, and general condition good. If the timing belt went, or HG failure caused other engine damage, probably a replacement engine is the right move.
My wife has a 98 RS. I am almost positive that it had a head gasket failure, but she said that the car made noises then quit on her.

Okay; I hope you get home soon and can experience "noises" (and more pleasant things) firsthand.
I am in Iraq right now so I am not sure what the "noise" sounded like but I am going to have it looked at by someone that would know whether I need a new engine.
