Those cam gear bolts for me were so hard to get off!! I have built 3 engines for my WRX and every time those were the hardest bolts to get off, Here is a website that is VERY VERY helpful and it's what I used for a reference guide.

I suggest saving them to your computer. That way they will open quicker for you as you reference them going forward.

These manuals are lifesavers, especially since subie manuals seem to be classified info to the general public.
