it should only take 5hrs to do. i need an new head :( and the dealership told me that they could put a new head in for me in 4hrs, using all my old stuff. so it shouldn't take to lond if you have a general idea of what ur doing.

Hey Brian,
Let me check with a couple of guys who are Subaru master techs and see what I can work out. When would you like to get it done?

Brian,

I do apologize for not getting back to you sooner, the senior master tech who will do it is on vacation and will be back a week from Monday. Maybe around then we could make arrangements. I'll try to keep you posted.
