2008 Tribeca Base
2001 Outback LL Bean H6
2000 Forester built off road toy
1990 Legacy 5spd ej22

It was easier than my 05 XT. It was about what I expected. Just make sure you have a low profile head ratchet.

The major issues (rare) that people have is a misfire, internal headgasket failure or transmission issues. You can look at the external headgaskets, but external leaks are rarer. Just take it for a good drive and pay attention for a misfire or shifting issues. If you can hook up a monitor and look for pending codes, more power to you
