Hey all, I am going to redo the headgaskets on my 2001 Forester LAWD. Anyone know of a good thread with a list of all the recommend parts necessary for this?

I have all the tools, just want to be extra sure about the gaskets and grommets and such.
I see some companies offering kits but I know subaru recommends OEM parts only. Does anyone have any tips on getting these kits? Brands to prefer or avoid?

Thanks in advance!

Tentative list

So far I am thinking I will want:

Head Gaskets
Air intake gaskets
Spark plugs
Grommets
Head bolts
Oil filter

I work next door to an auto machine shop so I can have them look at the heads. Any other small bits or gaskets I should change while I have the engine out?

I decided to get the kit from All Wheel Drive Auto kit with the 6 Star Gasket, went with new head bolts and all

I did the same to my ‘01 L with the Six Star head gaskets(actually a bit more than just head gaskets).. you can find lots of really good info and input from other members who helped me a great deal on the job I did on my engine.. follow my thread here:
