Help with my Build
I'm going crazy from doing price checks on parts and comparisons and asking if things are compatable, and trying to piece together this build. It's getting expensive fast. So I wanted to get some help with it, if anyone knows where to get any of these parts cheaper, please direct me there.

I found a full Subaru Gasket and Seal kit for $280
I found main bearings for $90
I found rod bearings for $75
I found Cometic head Gaskets (.051) for $90
I found ARP head studs for $175
I still need to find a Timing belt, all the belts actually.
I need a pressure plate and throughout bearing. Jacked mine up on the pull.

Feel free to try and sell me these things, but if you have a website for me, that'd be sweet.

you don't want to cheap out on most of those parts, rod and crank bearings are pretty important. those prices seem reasonable to me, and I don't think you'll find them any cheaper. just be patient and wait if you don't have the money. Your only going to want to do this once.

Ya, I didn't figure I'd find anything less expensive. These are all good brands that I've priced out. Mostly I need to find a good set of belts and the pressure plate and throughout bearing. Just thought someone might have done this recently and could direct me...

gates racing makes a good timing belt, [url=]Modern Automotive Performance #::#Wrx / Sti #::#Engine Components and Cooling #::#Rebuild Components #::#Timing Belt Components #::#Gates Racing Performance Timing Belt (WRX / STi)[/url] hopefully you got new tensioner as well
the dealer will have the pressure plate and the throw out bearing.but i would also get a clutch disc and have the flywheel resurfaced. as far as the accessory belts, you can get them any where, I just changed mine and got them from Schucks for under 12 dollars for both

Thanks. Bought that belt, that was exactly what I was looking for. Great price, $100.

And Exedy makes OEM clutch kits for like $150. Thanks for the help.
