  1. I've thought about them many times but when I compare it to the ease of maintenance on my 90 - 2000 2.2 I don't make the leap.
  2. 1+ Lucky TX had to say. He's aware of the future maintenance that may be needed. Testing is not %100 either way. I'm sure you're passing along the Subaru at a fair price to a friend so be happy you have a new Subaru owner in the gang.
  3. A nice 95-2002 would would last for years at a 1/4 of the price.
  4. Fronts almost any seat will fit. Yards are not selling seats with airbags, at least in CO. If you find a good seat with an airbag, remove all the tags and wiring and then they should sell it to you. Rears will have to be from an Impreza platform. Forester seats are about an inch higher off the floor. You may have to swap over the seatbelt latch from your old seat.
  5. Drop in a used 2.2 and be done with it. I've been happy with every swap I've done.
  6. Yes I've had it happen on motors that other have done a TB on. I have a few spare blocks that the parts bolt to. As others have said, it bolts to the block and is easy to change out.
  7. I put the full aluminum one in my 2006. The fan assy would not work, but I had older independent fans that went right in. Also when I did mine, just moving the PS hose caused it to suck air. I put some clamps on the hose and it solved the problem. You may want to change the hose.
  8. Oil leak. It's venting into the block. The PVC valve is controlling how much air goes in there.
  9. Easy to pull the motor and wire it direct or read voltage under load. I have spares if you need one. Larry
  10. It goes down to the air oil seperator area on the back of the block, which goes to the oil pan. Yes they often get very brittle from the engine heat. I've found the IAC hose is a perfect fit. When I'm in the self server yards, I'll pull a couple. You get 2 breather hose sections from each IAC hose.
  11. Used ones are easy to come by and they don't fail often.
  12. Subaru's are like legos, which is nice. You will run into the scrap rule. As soon as you scrap it, a week later you or someone you can help will need it. But you can't keep everything.
  13. Sounds like the wrong bolt in the Starter position when he changed the transmission. Single washer, ground bracket, starter, trans and into the block. You could pull the bolt from the yard if you have a self serve yard near you.
  14. That Link should go into the Tech Articles. Someone put a lot of work into it! Thanks for sharing. 79, 83 & 84 1000SP - all sold now. Larry
  15. Get a Motive brake Bleeder. They work Great! https://www.amazon.com/Motive-Products-European-Bleeder-Pressure/dp/B0002KM5L0/ref=asc_df_B0002KM5L0/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198100799464&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=902790476625103202&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1014471&hvtargid=aud-801381245258:pla-380942840295&psc=1
