Are you sure that you want to re-build this engine? It is quite different from older Subaru designs. It has fewer gaskets and you have to use much more sealant. It is like trying to glue the pieces back. This engine was designed with a different mindset (use it and then throw it away).

Not an impossible task and for sure it has been done many times, but the process is more complex and more prone to human error.
