www.scoobymods.com is a great site for the backyard WRX mechanic.

Online Subaru service manual subscription from SOA, but will cost you $34.95 for a 72 hour subscription. http://techinfo.subaru.com/html/index.jsp

well - you should purchase a new gasket as well. The gasket goes around the outside edge of the thermostat. The thermostat housing is what the lower radiator hose connects to - replacement is easy (after you drain the coolant) - remove the lower radiator hose (2 bolts), remove the thermostat housing, pull out the old thermostat, insert the new one (pay attention to the position of the jiggle valve), reinstall the cover, reinstall the lower radiator hose, refill with coolant, and off you go.

Definitely check out scoobymods

Yeah, it's easy. Just don't forget to burp the cooling system <---- VERY important.
