timing belt isn't as bad as people say it is. I would rather do a timing belt change than another uppipe or turbo swap, or injectors. did mine a few months ago, it's just time consuming. my driver side gear spun on me, I just turned it back to where it's supposed to be. it's just a damn car, people put the damn thing together, not magicians. I'm far away, but if everything lines up right, I'd like cruse up there. no other wrx's down in the bootheel. just mustangs and hillbillies trying race all the time.
