i was looking for actual information on replacing the head gaskets, like how to do it and the torque specs. there's too much information overload to get anywhere by searching but i know i've seen it in the past. any help?

do the new updated headgaskets have a different torque specification, has that specification always been the same or did it change since the HG issues crept up?

Theotherskip has written a great site dedicated to Phase I EJ25 head gasket replacement. It seems to be "locked" though. Here is the link to the google cache...

When I did my gaskets there was a thread going....

I used a haynes manual and the USMB. I used the torque procedure in the above USMB thread. 75k miles so far.

Note that while that cached link works, unfortunately if you click "Next" at the bottom of that page you can't access the rest of the information as it is locked.

I can tell you the basics on what I did.
I'm an old Ford V8 guy and have done a few other types, but I was a bit scared about doing the HG's in my 99 Legacy.
I pulled the engine to do it. It's an auto an was very simple to remove.
Got all Subaru parts from the dealer ( shopped for best pricing)
I got the PDF's with the specs and such.
Pulled the heads, had them decked for flatness and reinstalled.

I spent just over $600.00 ( added engine oil cooler and tranny cooler ) all new hoses, belts, etc. Took me about 16 hours total.
I've got over 2k on the motor since and it is working great. It's whole new car. Not like my Marauder, but that's parked for the winter.

it was really kinda fun.
