What about valve cover gaskets or other things needed when the time comes? Does it share the same gaskets as the SOHC 2.5? I know sourcing parts was kind of a PITA with my old EJ20G.

I'm really thinking about one of these in my 99' Forester I picked up with a spun bearing. I have an importer local to me with these for $1000. That is way cheaper and easier to find than a 2.5. Also with 4.44 gears and a 5-speed, I bet it wouldn't be too sluggish down low.

Any more info or impressions would be cool!
