Default Head gasket replacement

I just bought my 02 wrx over the summer and have already dropped too much money into it to count. I blew a head gasket first. Got that replaced. drove it for 3k more miles then threw a rod at 123k mi and got the engine replaced 10k miles ago. (AHHHHHH$$) I try to do all my own work on my car to save money and get better on fixing my car and now i am trying to deal with a blown head gasket. I love my bugeye to death and would never get rid of it and don't want it to sit. its my daily driver and need it back on the road soon. I was wondering if anyone with adequate subaru would be willing to help me with this process. I would be willing to pay and help with the build. I'm open to suggestions so just let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
-Ray

Just take it a real Subaru Shop Ray. Pay once, be done with it and your gonna be set for a long time. I recommend RBMS Auto Care in Hayward. Talk to Mert, he's a great guy. Very fast and efficient and turn around is quick. Tell him Calvin sent ya.

Yea thats nice but costly compared to pulling it. Im leaning towards pulling it because that i can afford and ill learn a lot from it. I just need some guidance and a little help.

I wouldn't use your daily driver as an experiment just to gain some experience in wrenching to be honest. Your daily driver should be one of the most reliable cars to have.
