Since I will have the intake manifold off, I'm wondering what else people think is a good idea to do/upgrade at the same time.
How I dealt with it on my '04 STI: Just before 60000 miles (11/2008), went to dealer for final warranty work- asked for help with fuel leak, and clunking struts. Fuel leak was addressed by tightening clamps on lines and was told "could not duplicate" on clunk. (Have since replaced all four corners with Feal Suspension re-valved OEM- thanks Odi. The car went through both original rear struts and one of the replacements under warranty).
Fuel leak soon returned and had to endure winters of '09, '10 and '11 and was repeatedly told out of warranty but I pressed on with SOA and emphasized the problem being a fire hazard and having been reported before 60K miles and they agreed to cover half of the cost if done by authorized Subaru dealer. (~$900). Still think they should have covered total cost but generally satisfied with outcome. A fuel pressure regulator was also replaced FYI. Car is stock with the exception of the modded struts.
