Where to buy head gasket kit?

Postby p0ckT » Tue Mar 03, 2020 5:18 pm

So I am going to be replacing the head gaskets and seals on my 2006 Subaru Liberty. I'm having a hard time finding where to purchase a kit that comes with all the seals and gaskets. I have found some kits that are close but none that will fit a 2006 EZ30r engine.

Thank You

Here’s the part number and bill of materials from opposed forces.
http://opposedforces.com/parts/legacy/e ... tration_2/

The part number is 10105AA790

If we google that, they’re readily available, thus search for eg genuine at lowest price best convenience and or vendor reputation.

I remember my engine builder buddy had a local supplier of non genuine (but oem quality) kits, iirc they included Ajusa brand parts. I’ll google that too.

Now, I’m a stickler for genuine oem service parts of course, but most mechanics I’ve met use these parts, eg gates, ajusa etc, because generally they’re better value, also readily available, and they have to work.

But caveat emptor, do your own research, eg gates make 2 levels of (EJ) timing kits, make sure you get the better, slightly pricier version.

Where to buy? Search for a local ajusa dealer (or get your mechanic to order).
Or go online. Local vendors for oem can be competitively priced, eg BCW, GIR, carmods etc.
Or partsouq, japan parts, and other vendors listed in my parts faq link in my signature :)

Also, consider the opportunity to get your heads checked and decked.
