Its kind of a big deal (or at least pain in the ass) when you're like me and bolt-on a turbo to your older NA Subie using parts from several different years and models (regular WRX's vs. STi's) and don't have a VIN for them. I had one guy that refused to look up parts unless I could provide him with a VIN.

When I did finally get to talking to the older more experienced Subie parts guy, he was easily able to provide me with everything I needed. To be smart, I saved all of the wrappers and labeled them for future gasket purchases so I can just cut to the chase.
