Default 100k Parts List 04 EJ251 SOHC Need Help

ok so I am at 98k and have a HG leak on both sides that needs to get taken care of soon. While I am at it I am going to get a bunch of other stuff done. I need help figuring out what/where to get the parts. Not looking for anything super high performance. Car is basically stock except for Catback Exhaust. Might put headers on while im doing this other work, but that would be it for mods.

Here's the list:
  1. HGs - Need to figure this out and looking for part #s for MLS that will work. I'm posting in the HG thread to find out if anyone has used the new Feltpro ones but seems like most people are going OE on this. Here's Rockauto Parts for Feltpro FEL-PRO Part # 26415PT
  2. Exhaust manifold gasket - seems like I might be leaking there a little too. Rockauto FEL-PRO Part # MS95088
  3. Clutch - Probably and Exedy Stage 1 OE clutch. Where should I get this Ebay? I saw a post where someone linked and 02-05 RS to a 06+ wrx clutch and flyhweel. I guess they are both push style clutches and compatible but need the clutch throwout bearing for your respective year/model. Any thoughts on what I should do here? What's my best/cheapest option to upgrade my clutch?
  4. Lightweight Flywheel - Same thing Ebay?
  5. Short throw shift kit - Kartboy probably? How dependent on what clutch i get is this or at all? Can I order this independently of the clutch I get? Any recommendations or thoughts? EBay?
  6. Oil Separator Plate - gonna do it while this work is getting done. Dealership or Rockauto? I want the newer steel plate. What will fit my motor, are they year specific? Having trouble locating this.
  7. Timing Belt Kit with water pump - Dayco Kit from Rockauto? it's one of their most popular ones. DAYCO Part # 95304K1. It's like $150 compared to $350 for the one from Z1 performance. Why the price difference? Both come with TB/WP belts, idlers, tensioners. Z1 has thermostat too but that's the only difference I see. Am I missing something? Should I just get thermostat separately?
    EDIT - that dayco one does not have Water Pump, but this Gates one does and is $235
    http://www.amazon.com/Gates-TCKWP304-Engine-Timing-Water/dp/B0052XMF3Ahttp://www.amazon.com/Gates-TCKWP304-Engine-Timing-Water/dp/B0052XMF3A
  8. Miscellaneous? What am I missing to do this job? I am going to reuse HG bolts. seems like most people do. What about that engine seal gunk? where can i get that? I have oil and a filter to do an oil change after Im done. Ill have to refill the coolant since I will be pulling the motor. Should I get subaru OE coolant or can i get any old kind? Should I change the rear main seal while Im at it? seems like most people leave it alone as it's probably fine and could cause more problems than its worth?

What did I forget? Any thoughts or directions on where/what to purchase would be very helpful. I did the valve cover gaskets and plug gaskets recently so those are all set. Should i put on some ebay UEL headers? I dont want it to be too loud tho.

TIA

Use oem sti head gaskets and consider arp head studs. Worked good on my build.

For the shifter, lots of people use the Kartboy. I have the newer version of the Cobb that's all CNC, anodized, and perty and hidden by the shift boot.
The only thing you need to check is whether you need the wide or narrow one. Turn in Concepts has a good description on their pages for the Kartboy.
For a lightweight flywheel, I think the ACT streetlite is the most popular. I'd buy it from reputable but cheap place you feel comfortable with.

I bought the Cobb shifter used from a guy at a local meet. You can't use the STI shifter, because it's for the 6MT. As far as acquiring the flywheel, I would go to ACT's website, get the part number, then Google that to find the best price.

Looks like i need this flywheel ACT streelight, 600185. found on amazon for $260
Exedy OE clutch is like $175 on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/EXEDY-NEW-CL...bbe9a7&vxp=mtr

what about this WRX clutch/flywheel combo for $376. I know its for WRX but like I was saying Im pretty sure I can install this with the correct throwout bearing for my car.http://www.ebay.com/itm/EXEDY-CLUTCH...ht_3611wt_1398

Or this for $489 http://www.ebay.com/itm/EXEDY-NEW-CL...108939&vxp=mtr

This x1003049484

Pretty much exact same shape as the EJ251 gaskets and they are 3 layer steel gaskets as opposed to the one layer 251 gaskets.
