i ended up doing mine myself, it wasnt really that hard, found i did need some extra line and  both left & right grommets for the vent tanks along with extra line to those tanks, while at it i replaced the line from the tank to the pump and the pump back to firewall...pretty easy job...write up on & samba how to do it

we have a friend of the family who works at a local subaru shop, highest sales shop in NH and he says " what recession" they have never slowed down...he said they had some dead spots over the winter but not like the other dealers ...times are good for subaru

so the 16" rims do they make a difference in gearing, you mention same revs, i hear some folks re gear the tranny to get more out of each gear even adding a fifth...i think im gonna leave mine as is but im contemplating shock & springs to try and eliminate some of the body roll in corners with the extra speed
