Default 2006 STi Timing Belt Service Question

I need to change my timing belt soon. I am looking for the correct part numbers for the Subaru Cam Sprocket Holders for my 2006 STi. I have been searching for a while and found this one: http://www.etoolcart.com/camshaftspr...499207100.aspx but it doesn't look like it will work for the STi.

Can anyone help me?

I have checked IWSTI. Didn't see where they listed the tool's part number there either. I have a friend who has told me that he will help me do the work, but I need to get the tool in order for him to help me. Changing the belt and stuff will take long enough without me having to fab a tool to do it. Sorry if I would rather buy a tool than make one.

you could make this tool in 20 minutes

and if you call a good dealer...they MAY let you borrow it with a deposit

or order one for you which you could then ebay to recoup the cost

expect seveal hundred dollars

or something

but this is NOT a showstopper

and you will almost CERTAINLY have more issues with the cam gear bolts and maybe even the cam gears themselves---which may be broken if they are the plastic ones

this job is not for the n000b shade tree as the **** up factor is high and the cost to fix it could exceed $5k

I've always just used a set of vice grips. Lock them onto the two sprockets where they come close together... viola! They no spin. No screwing around making a tool and its just as effective.
