My local Subaru shop told me to stay away from cometic HG. Did u use the arp lube? Have you done a block test (for combustion gas in the coolant)?

Yeah, in hindsight I'd use the oem gaskets. Heads were machined and block checked though. And yes, I used the arp lube on it all. That shouldn't be the problem or I think a leak down test would have shown it with a higher rate of leakage.

Where in these motors can water get into oilways other than the head gaskets? I didn't seem to have any additional pressure in my cooling system either.

Sounds like a cracked head.

I guess it could be. But even still, my leak down numbers were consistent. I didn't have a weaker cylinder. I would think a cracked head would show additional leakage.

You could at least leave the information up for the next guy who has problems. Some of us do use the search feature!

There is the lower coolant crossover passage cast into the case halves. It has an o-ring where the two halves meet.

Yeah I'm positive those o-rings were in. That's something I was very cautious about.

make sure you have a oem o-ring in there ,i believe it is orange ....i tried using a oring from the auto parts store....it was a tad too fat ....and i think it kept the block halves from coming together properly....and i spun a bearing in 400 miles on a new rebuild so just a warning guys all those orings in the block are important .....now what gasket sets include all those block orings ,cause the cometic rebuild set i bought from JSC speed did not have them

Honestly, I bought an ebay bottom end gasket set and they were all in there.
