Hows it going everybody? I have a question that may sound like a stupid one but I am a newbe to Subaru's. I have a 98 forester that I am embarking on replacing the head gaskets. I have been shopping for the best price on parts and am completely lost. Buying the Subaru brand head gasket set and head bolts or a Felpro head gasket set and bolts run $300-$400 whether I buy online or locally. But if I go on E-bay I can get a set with head bolts and shipping for around $100. Is there that much of a difference in the quality? Has anyone tried these other gaskets with any luck? The car has 150k on it and overheats really bad after about 40min of driving. It's a long story but I got suckered with the car and am on a limited budget fixing it. It seems to have been taken care of fairly well. The timing belt is almost new and the tensioner, idler pulleys, and water pump are actually in nice shape so I am going to skip replacing them. But I am worried about any damage the previous owner did from driving while overheating and the temp guage pinned. Is it critical I get the better gaskets? If so can I buy the cheaper gasket set and just get the head gaskets from Felpro? That would cost about $180 and still save some money. Any info anyone could give would be appreciated.
