I wouldn't reuse factory headstuds if I were you. Go ARP for studs. They're kind of expensive, but worth every penny.

its too tight to do any work in there. im not sure if it can be done because i always pull the motor to remove the heads.
give it a shot and lets us know if it works.

my 90k service is coming up. I have pulled motors before but only classic v8's. Is pulling the motor required to change the timing belt on a wrx ?

I know Frank at XtremeBoost here in Orlando claims he can pull them with the motor in but I haven't seen this feat yet
