    I wish I would have replaced my housing.

    Pitting? Trainrex helped me out, instructing me to Emory file mine until I could feel no imperfections, and to use a touch of Si, but eventually other pits developed, even though I kept the coolant schedule and diluted with distilled H2O only. New housing and all is well again.

    Not a ton of pitting but corrosion. I sat there with emory for an hour to get it to my satisfaction. It was soo bad I had to start with a knife to whittle it off.

    A new housing is $28 if memory serves plus a Subaru gasket. My bolts were fine.
