Hello, i want to buy a timing belt kit and i want to know if my Forester 1998 2.0 /NA is identic (for this kit i mean) with the Subaru Impreza WRX 2.0 Liter (in the US) Also, it is the same kit as the 2.5L Forester engines (same age and model )?

Thank you very much for your help.

Yes. 1998 NA forester DOHC engine uses the same components used in a 2.0L WRX or 2.5L WRX/STI.. The only difference in the 1998 vs WRX models is that you will not need the little blue idler in the kit (this idler is about $60 from the dealer too!)

Sorry to hijack this thread. As a newbie, can I ask how many cambelt oil seals there are? Is it one each side? Mine is A '98 2.0l NA. Also, which EJ engine is it? Or, how can I find out?
