Post Shop Manual Help!!

Hi guys!

I was going to finally buy a shop manual from subaruparts.com and saw that the 1999RS manual was ~800$ and the 2000RS manual was ~400$. Whats the deal?

Is there a significant difference between the MY2000 model and the MY1999 model shop manuals?

The way it works is the first MY a car is available is when EVERYTHING is in the shop manual. Every year after that you get an update basically, that covers new stuff. So to truely have the 99 shop manual, you have to buy years 93-99, thus it costs 800 bucks to do that. In the case of the RS, really you should be able to cover just about everything with the 98/99/2000 books. But the 98 wont have the SOHC engine stuff, the 99 will. Im not sure what 2000 adds, except maybe the different intake and LSD rear info. There is alot more to the books, but some procedures may not be covered in one year if it has not changed from a previous year.

I bought just the 99 MY for around 100-200 bucks (memory is failing me now) just to have them at Nationals, as a shop manual is the only way of defending yourself immediatly at a National level event.

Did I answer your question?

Silver 99 RS
