I have a 2003 EJ25 with 5 speed manual trans. I'm currently tearing the motor down to replace the head gaskets. I need torque specs for tightening the valve cover bolts, exhaust manifold bolts, intake manifold bolts and re-using head bolts.

Also I need to replace some small hoses. I need to replace the 2 small rubber coolant hoses that go to the underside of the throttle body. And also the pcv hose and vacuum booster brake hose. So i'm looking for part numbers for these unless anyone knows if I can buy at local parts store like auto zone or o'riellys.

How about the information I asked for like the torque specs and part numbers?

Are you just trying to find someone's thread to piss in or are you actually going to help?

I would recommend using new bolts. Do the job right

@adc is helping. He is offering sound advise regarding HG job. Reusing HG bolts has been done, but not recommended given how prone these engines are to HG issues.

Thanks..I won't say what I was thinking. I should have kept my mouth shut in the first place. And actually my subaru specialist who is very good. Said it wasn't necessary. I opted to pony up 100 bucks for new ones and 70K miles later they don't leak a drop.

I just replaced parts of the PCV system on my 2001. Bought some of the parts on ebay and the rest from the local dealer. The rubber hoses and plastic bits associated with PCV due to age and heat are very brittle and likely break apart into pieces. Part numbers can be found on various Subaru Dealer websites, that is the method I use to find various parts. I just type in the year etc... on a dealer website and that get's you into the various parts of the vehicle with diagrams and then from there you can select the part and find the part number.

Regarding the various torque specifications, get your self an account from Alldatadiy.com and pay for the account. From there you'll be able to get all the torque specifications and torque sequences you need for the HG job. You can probably also get various part # from there as well.

Yeah, i would get the all data account, but i don't work on cars for a living. i just work on my stuff for myself, so i don't see the need to pay for that. guess i will just search the forums and the net for the torque specs. thanks to both of you for your responses.

The account on Alldata, is car specific. Year, make and model specific. I have 3 different vehicles, so I pay three times for the 3 cars and use the information on there all the time for each vehicle.....It's an annual subscription.
