Default Valve cover gasket kit from RockAuto

I would like to change my valve cover gaskets, plug seals and bolt grommets. Has anyone used the DNJ ENGINE COMPONENTS VC715G from RockAuto and if so is it a quality kit?

Part # 13294AA070 - valve cover gaskets - qty. 2 (approx. $11 ea.)

Part # 13271AA051 - rocker cover grommet - qty. 10 (approx. $3.25 ea.)

Total: ~ $68.50

Thanks,
I sent them a message and they told me that I didn't need the grommets, so I ordered the 2 gaskets and 4 plug seals.

I have a 2008 impreza 2.5i and I tried yesterday to replace the valve cover gaskets, plug gaskets, and grommets. Like you, I found out there are no grommets. The guy at Subaru said my car is "grommetless" lol.

Anyways take a good look before you start unbolting things. Theres not enough space between the cover and the frame and I couldnt get the valve covers off without taking out the motor and I ended up spending an hour trying to get the old gaskets back in place for no reason. The passenger side came off enough to replace the plug seals, but not the cover gasket, and I couldnt do anything about the driver side.

I dont know if your impreza's engine bay is the same, but I figured I'd warn you. Another thread misled me.

You don't have to remove the engine. Remove the two engine mount nuts from the subframe and take the pitch stopper out. Jack engine up a few inches and you have plenty of clearance.
