Jeez you have a lot of Subarus. Too bad about the previous owner not treating it right.

I'm down to two running, two broken... When it's all said and done I'll have three running.

Thanks! My wife spent a few hours cleaning the interior and it looks like new. There's very little wrong with the exterior either with the exception of a cracked tail light, it's just that this guy's maintenance was extremely sloppy.

It doesn't fail to deliver in the destruction department though

Got the heads dropped off today, the machinist said the exhaust cam wasn't the worst that he'd seen before. Hopefully he can get the cam and journal smooth again.

I picked up the heads today and the remainder of the gaskets and whatnot I'll be needing... All that's left is the ARP moly grease I need to move the studs over. Then hopefully this thing will run for a little longer than 200 miles before it needs me to look at it again!

The heads weren't as bad as I'd feared, all they and the cams needed was a good polishing. The machine shop also reset the valve lash on the heads, so I'm good to go!
