Default Any mechanic wanna work on an 00-01 RS?

My wife's co-worker has an 00' or 01' 2.5RS that threw a CEL. The shop that she took it to claims that it needs a subaru specific part and that subaru does not sell this part outside and can only be repaired at a dealership.

I use to be a ASE certified tech, but have been out of that field for 5+ years now and have no tools or scanning devices. To my knowledge, there are generic parts for pretty much anything and HAVING to go to the dealership seems unwarranted. So do any of you know a good mechanic that can use a job?

Have them take the car to autozone and have them run the check engine light, write the codes down and post them up to get a better idea what is wrong (maybe its just something small)

or they can just sell me the car cheap =)

Most the time if it is a tool there are ways to get around it.

Bring it to my work, we are one of the 7 shops asked by Maricopa County to help with emissions failure vehicles. IE check engine lights. One of the owners/techs was a Subaru tech for 20yrs.

^I'll let her know. It's funny because the only reason she's worried about the CEL is because her emissions testing is coming up. I'll also ask her if she wants to sell for all of you looking for a 2.5RS.
